Via Alta Vallemaggia - Aquile Trekking
Trekking delle Aquile (Eagles' trek), a splendid route with open views. In 4 days, it starts from Vergelletto and arrives at Loco.
A bird's-eye view of the Ticino mountains and a panorama as far as the eye can see
An ideal route for discovering alpine hiking without any problems: four stages of limited length, flavoured by some rocky stretches and passages along ridges that are airy, but not too airy. A route also suitable for those who want to introduce young people, perhaps their children, to the mountains beyond the beaten track.
The scenery is that of the chain between Vallemaggia and Onsernone. Alternating between stretches along the slopes and others on the crests, the route offers 360° views of the Ticino Alps, the peaks of Lombardy and Piedmont and more distant massifs, such as the four-thousand metre peaks in the Valais. But there are also glimpses of the valleys nestling at our feet, of forests as far as the eye can see, of villages that look like miniatures from above, of roads resembling slender silver threads. Two thousand metres above the valley floor, it's a bit like feeling like an eagle

Was die Teilnehmer über diese Erfahrung sagen
What a magnificent trek in the Ticino Alps. The organisation is very professional and attentive to each participant. A superb experience surrounded by crystal-clear lakes.
Trekking dei laghetti organizzato in modo perfetto da Pierre. La messa in sicurezza in alcuni passaggi sul percorso così come l'organizzazione in capanna (aperitivi, cene, pernottamenti) è stata esemplare. Avanti così.
Merci pour cette magnifique aventure! Beaucoup de professionnalisme au niveau du guide donc sentiment de sécurité pour moi qui m'a permis de me dépasser mais sans me surestimer. Beaucoup de connaissances partagées, d'humanité et d'humour tant du côté de l'organisateur que des participants(e) ce qui a rendu l'ambiance top durant ces quelques jours dans un autre monde! Je recommande donc sans hésitation Peak 2 Peace à toute personne qui souhaite vivre une expérience en montagne dans les meilleures conditions possibles.
Quel magnifique trekking dans les alpes tessinoises. L'organisation est très professionnelle et attentive à chaque participant. Une superbe expérience au milieu des lacs cristallins.
Paesaggi mozzafiato, compagni di viaggio allegri e disponibili.....un gruppo affiatato alla scoperta delle nostre meravigliose vette.
Grazie a Marea e Pierre per averci fatto sognare per 5 indimenticabili giorni.
A presto per una nuova avventura.
