#USI25: 25 Peaks in 25 days

Sport Service USI

Start date:

End date:

25 peaks to reach in 25 days. A birthday to celebrate. From 1 to 25 August, to celebrate USI's 25th anniversary, the Sports Service proposes to climb some of the most significant mountains in Ticino.

Climbing a mountain means having a goal, planning the ascent according to one's own abilities and knowing how to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way. It recalls somehow the journey of a first-year student towards graduation.

To celebrate USI's 25th anniversary, our Sports Service will guide you through the discovery of 25 peaks in Ticino. Some of them will require crossing glaciers, others will need the aid of a grappling hook, another one will include a stand-up paddle or canoe path. Some of them are daily trips; others require overnight stays in a hut or tent. In a nutshell, there's something for everyone!

Those interested in taking part in one or more hikes must be self-sufficient and bring their own equipment.
