Combine the beauty of a mountain run with an orientation challenge: you'll discover orienteering.
In Pesciüm there is a fixed route for orienteering, of which we are all very proud. Available in three variants according to its level of difficulty, it will entertain you by testing your sense of direction.
Orienteering was born as a sport in the woods, precisely because it is there that man's ability to observe his surroundings in search of signals that help him to orient himself emerges better. An exciting activity and suitable for everyone, orienteering consists in exploring an unknown territory with the sole help of a topographical map and the surrounding nature.
There is nothing better than the Airolo-Pesciüm woods for this outdoor sport! Don't hesitate: ask for a map at the ticket offices of the cable car and start exploring our territory without missing any of the control points on the route.
