Cable Car
“At Orselina near the church Madonna del Sasso you found the station of the cableway to Cardada. Thanks to the cable-cars' tear shape and windows on all sides down to the floor, their overall appearance is light and transparent. They are also easily accessible to the disabled and families with baby buggies. If you want, you reach the station travelling by funicolar, starting in Locarno and arriving just nearby. A two-seater chairlift running parallel to the axis of the ropeway leads from Cardada to Cimetta, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking view during their ride. The highest point in Cimetta has been made into a geological observation point: a large, circular platform that merges into the layers of rock on the sides. Sport and leisure: 2 Helsana running walking trails, 1 orienteering for children, 1 orienteering for adults, mountain bike trail, paragliding and a foot sole massage path.”

Establishment
“Avrete la possibilità di provare l’emozione di un lancio dalla diga più alta d’Europa con il bungee jumping. Questo è possibile in Val Verzasca, dall’altezza di 220 m, dove sono state girate le scene del famoso film di James Bond, “Goldeneye” con Pierce Brosnan.In base a sondaggi mondiali si è trattato della miglior scena stunt della storia del cinema: il salto di Bond dall’alto dei 220 metri della diga del Verzasca nel film “Goldeneye”. Salto di 007 o bungee jumping di Goldeneye sono i nomi con cui si è battezzato il solenne colpo di adrenalina che si può provare sul Lago di Vogorno.”
