Iwona: On a beginner’s canyoning tour, I discovered that Ticino has wonderful hidden gorges that almost nobody knows about. There, you find 100 metre high waterfalls, turquoise-coloured pools under overhanging-cliffs, forests of palms and hanging ferns and smooth rock ledges on which to enjoy the sun. My curiosity was piqued, so I set out on a quest to explore the whole canton. When I had realized others might enjoy hearing about how to access these spots, the book started to take shape. Ron: Do you have a special connection to Ticino?
Iwona:I have loved Ticino since I gathered chestnuts there as a child in our family holidays. It is sunny, welcoming and has a wild, tropical feel. Ron: What is your favourite location from the book and why?
Iwona: I love the natural rock slide at Pianascio di fuori in Val d’Osola. It’s fun zooming down and diving in the cool pool with a splash.
Ron: How would you recommend traveling when visiting these locations? Car, public transport, hiking, cycling?
Iwona: Transport by PostBus is most relaxed. In the riviera Region, you can also use the PostBus for a hop-on-hop-off tour. There, you will find beautiful waterfalls pools near the stops of a partcicular bus line.
Ron: What other advice would you give to people who wish to visit the Ticino.
Iwona: Bring good shoes as many trails are a rocky.
Ron: Do you have any other books planned?
Iwona: The photographer, (Christoph Hurni,) and I are thinking of making swimming guidebooks for other regions in Switzerland. But for which region best? Suggestions are welcome.
