I was at the Monte Tamaro three times and I enjoyed a lot to do the course of the Adventure Park.
I wait that moment when in sprin or summer my sons ask me to accompain them there.
I'd like to make a final comment: use gym shoes

“Wish I had more time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We went tot he Splash and Spa at Mont Tamaro, which was an easy short train ride. Everything is well labeled and easy to follow directions in Switzerland. My husband and I had a blast, if we had more time would have done the Zip line and cable car next door.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

Must see place if you are in Ticino area. best view compare to other mounts. Excellent for Kids activities at both cable car levels. still lots of snow and thats why adventure park is till closed. Restaurant is good and compare to other mountain restaurant its cheap. Again cable car ride is free with Ticino discovery card...very useful.

“Must visit if you're in Lugano, Switzerland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

I may be alto phobic but that view up above and the cable car ride was definitely worth it. Went around April last year and there were still snow everywhere. The restaurant was ok and a bit pricey but it was indeed a fantastic attraction. Excellent view!
