An unforgettable experience
Everyone should experience a trip on the Centovalli Railway. The scenary is as extraordinary as the train route is amazing, with 83 bridges and 34 tunnels.
The route passes through the enchanting Centovalli (in heart of the Locarnese National Park Project's), a valley offering unspoiled nature, rocky mountains, spectacular waterfalls all framed by wonderful rich vegetation. During the journey we will take you through vineyards, chestnut woods and clearings, all coloured in the changing shades of the seasons, and through small villages lost in time.
An experience you can enjoy from a comfortable seat in the Centovalli train. A panoramic journey which will live on in your memory.
