Fitness Room

The well-equipped fitness room offers state-of-the-art Technogym sporting technology and a hydro-massage tub. Upon request, a personal trainer (for whom payment is required) is available who can show you how to use the equipment and develop a personalised routine with you. Ideal for those wishing to begin or optimise their exercise routine.

Sports Coaching

Upon request, professional and amateur coaches are available for every sort of outdoor sport, offering guests who wish to explore the area and get to know its particularities an informative, educational, and sporty exchange.
You can ask for information on how to arrange a conversation or meeting with the sporting experts at the Hotel Reception, or ideally when booking your stay.


Cycling enthusiasts will be glad to hear that the Bike Hotel Lago Maggiore makes standard and mountain bikes available to its guests. If you wish to bring your own bike with you, you will find everything necessary for its repair and optimal preparation in a workshop inside the hotel. Challenge yourself on paths across the Canton, which range in difficulty, but all offer spectacular views. You can go by yourself, or accompanied by an expert guide. A washer and dryer are available to guests, allowing you to get your sports clothes ready for the following day, and get back out there fresh and fragrant.

Mountain Bike

Breath-taking countryside, a mild, temperate climate, itineraries ranging from flat ground trails to paths with more than a 20% gradient, and 2,300 hours of sunshine each year. This incredible setting is the place to plan rewarding excursions with your trusty companion: your bike! The area is vast and diverse, so you can pedal leisurely along the riverbanks and the shore of Lake Maggiore, or climb your way up the many valleys in the region. Here we have the perfect conditions for casual cyclists, mountain bikers, and professionals alike!

Outdoor Activities

For anyone wishing to spend a day on the lake, there are courses for stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing, and sailing, as well as trips out in a motorboat, or simply an unforgettable outing in a pedalo, discovering the great beauty of the area from the water.


How about an early morning run? Just outside the Hotel there is a brilliant running route which skirts the shore of the lake, taking joggers to the stunning Bolle di Magadino nature reserve at the mouth of the river Ticino – 10km of pure nature! On your return, recharge your batteries with the buffet breakfast which has been designed for our sportier guests.

Cardada Cimetta

As well as its truly unique panorama, this mountainous region offers visitors countless activities to do all year round. Make the most of the area’s pleasant climate and its astonishing natural beauty with walks and outings suitable for families and more intrepid guests alike. With footpaths and mountain bike trails to follow – as well as sites for paragliding – you are certain to enjoy the splendour of spring, summer, and autumn! On the mountain of Cardata Cimetta, you can also sample the very best specialities from Ticino.

Swimming Pool & Spa

Your choice of activities here is also enhanced by external facilities, including the Locarno Lido and the nearby thermal salt spa, with swimming pools suited to all ages and preferences, a professional spa, and an appealing sandy beach. There are many sides to the lake, all of them offering opportunities to take care of your well-being.

Locarno Lido

Situated in the beautiful setting of Lake Maggiore, the Locarno Lido is a veritable oasis of water-themed relaxation, sport, and well-being. The Lido is open all year round, whatever the weather, and offers a modern bathing experience, with a large number of indoor and outdoor pools, including an Olympic-size swimming pool, a hot tub, and a children’s pool with water games and four incredible slides.

Termali Salini & Spa

The thermal baths of the Termali Salini & SPA have areas dedicated to bathing, saunas, spa treatments, as well as a dining area. All of the pools are exclusively salt water. The bathing area is spread over different floors, and your path through is something akin to a relaxation ritual. Sitting right by the lake, the spa’s location is unique. As is its internal architecture, with ravines, caves, and waterfalls recreating the most striking features of the valleys of Ticino.
