Intro

⮱Coming from the Valais, emigrants settled in the Middle Ages in the small side valley of the Maggia Valley. These settlers, the Walters, did not traverse the valleys but coming from Pomade (Val Formazza), they crossed the mountains. Bosco Gurin, at 1503 meters the highest mountain village in Ticino, is today one of Switzerland’s most charming villages.

⮱The picturesque village, founded in 1253 by the settlers, is as beautiful as ever. Its authentic houses are built of stone and wood. The inhabitants of Bosco Gurin have preserved their traditions and language through the centuries and even today speak the “Ggurijnartitsch” vernacular.

One of the oldest houses in the village, dating from 1386, is home to the local history museum, the “Guriner Walserhaus”.

Winter

Bosco Gurin offers 30 kilometers of ski runs that are suitable for beginners as well as advanced skiers. The Snow Park is near the Sandiga Boda piste, one of the sunniest places in the Gurin area. Snowshoe tours, cross-country trails and winter hiking paths round out the winter sports offerings.

Summer

Bosco Gurin attracts sports enthusiasts, families and nature lovers who are looking for scenic beauty, nature and the peace and quiet of the mountains. The Great Walser Trail leads from the Binn Valley (Valais) via the Albrun Pass, Devero, Formazza, Guriner Furgge to Bosco Gurin.
