Sunrise on Monte Lema

The hike to see the sunrise on Monte Lema is an unforgettable experience that combines the beauty of nature with the serenity of a new day beginning.

Located on the border between Switzerland and Italy, Monte Lema offers a breathtaking view of the Alps and the surrounding lakes. To fully enjoy this natural spectacle, it is advisable to set out before dawn, when the sky begins to turn pastel colours and the world still seems immersed in silence.
Since the excursion to see the sunrise requires a very early start time, the most practical way to reach the starting point is by car.

The Tresa Bay hotel, located on the shores of Lake Lugano, is an ideal base for this adventure. Guests staying at the Tresa Bay can take advantage of the hotel’s convenient location and the possibility of requesting a packet lunch. This package includes a selection of snacks and beverages that allow you to get through the day in the mountains without worrying about where and when to eat.

Once you reach the summit of Monte Lema, you are greeted by a panorama that leaves you breathless. The sunrise rising between the mountains, gradually illuminating the lakes and valleys below, is a spectacle that amply repays the effort of the morning climb. After admiring the sunrise, the hike can continue along the various paths through the mountains. With a packet lunch prepared by the Tresa Bay hotel, it is possible to stop at one of the many viewpoints for a picnic, enjoying the tranquillity and beauty of the place.
This excursion, with its combination of nature, adventure and comfort, is an experience that will remain in the hearts of everyone who experiences it.
