How to travel to Lavertezzo and back from Ganne, and hiking route details.
How to get there and back
Lavertezzo can best be reached by bus, e.g. from Locarno. There is limited parking. From Ganne, you can travel back by bus. The buses do not operate frequently, so be sure to check the schedule.
Be sure to look into passes that may come in handy for this day trip and your other activities in Switzerland.
You can find the route on the map on this page. We offer detailed directions as well:
- From the bus stop, take the path going north, towards the bridge (Ponte dei Salti) and away from the village. It's worth it to take a look in the village of Lavertezzo first.
- Cross the bridge and turn right. Be careful on the bridge. It is narrow and the walls on both sides are low. It was never designed for many tourists. It can get crowded here on sunny summer days.
- Follow the signs in the direction of Brione and Ganne, until you reach the bus stop, about 300 m after the hamlet of Ganne.
Find bus schedules. The hiking route starts at the bus stop 'Lavertezzo, Paese' and ends at the bus stop 'Brione (Verzasca), Ganne'.
