IT CAN HAPPEN IN AN INSTANT!
SAFETY IN THE WATER IT’S UP TO YOU.

Acque sicure

Most of the rivers in Canton Ticino are attractive to tourists not only for their natural beauty but are also the perfect place to relax and participate in a number of outdoor activities such as swimming, canyoning, canoeing, and scuba diving.

However, these rivers can be potentially dangerous even for experts. Unpredicted rise of water levels due to rain, freezing temperatures, slippery rocks, strong currents, whirlpools, and waterfalls…. are all dangers that should be taken seriously especially when children are involved.
