The hike along the south bank from Arogno via Pugerna and Caprino to Cantine di Gandria is demanding. It takes approximately 3 hours and you will need sturdy footwear. Arogno can be reached by bus from Capolago or Lugano.
The section between Caprino and Cantine di Gandria (approx. 80 minutes) is among the most beautiful on Lake Lugano. It includes numerous ascents and descents, so sturdy footwear is recommended here too. After heavy rain it is not accessible, however. Caprino can be reached by ferry.
