Hiking around the Osteria Centrale The Blenio Valley offers a large variety of beautiful hiking tours and easy walks. The Osteria Centrale is situated in the ideal spot to serve as a base for one-day hikes, or to start out for longer excursions (for instance to the famous natural resort of Greina).
Relatives and friends of ours documented these following tour suggestions. Unfortunately there are still only few of them, and only partly translated in English.
We’ll be happy to take note of your personal favourite discoveries!
An easy walk to Dötra
An easy walk that starts out in Campra, crosses the Plain of Dötra and ends in Acquacalda.
The splendid view of the area of the Lucomagno-Pass, the beautiful, rare flowers and a break in the little alpine pasture village of Dötra are the main attractions of this tour.
From the Leventina to Olivone.
Medium effort excursion: from the little mountain-lake Ritom to Olivone, over the Passo delle Colombe.
The ideal thing to do on the arrival day - if your backpack isn’t too heavy! By Swiss Federal Train SBB to Airolo (first stop after the Gotthard -Tunnel, coming from northern Switzerland), then by bus to Piotta, from where a cable car will take you to the lake of Ritom. The path first follows the lakeshore, then will cross the Colombo-Pass and descend to Acquacalda, from where you can catch a bus, or continue your hike to Olivone. Here you will happily enjoy a hearty dinner, a glass of wine and a cosy room.
Walk from Olivone to Pinadee and return
An easy stroll to Pinadee, returning to Olivone by foot (over Ponto Aquilesco) or taking the short cut down to Aquila, from where you can take a bus will bring you back.
Pleasant quiet walk, the path leads through the woods up to the little, peaceful village of Pinadee. Relax and contemplation.
A hike from Vrin on to the Greina
Trek from Vrin (in the Canton Graubünden) up to the high plains of Greina, overnight stay in the cabin of Motterascio - next day descend to Olivone.
Tough ascent in the beginning, to the Diesrut Pass, then the path becomes easy, crossing the amazing Greina region.
