Mornera can be reached by the cable car from Monte Carasso. At the arrival of the cable car, it is advisable to proceed to the right, immediately entering a beautiful wood that will lead you to the beautiful frozen lake of Mornera, which always offers a magical scenery.

Continue through the wood following the path, where every now and then you will come across comfortable benches where you can take a short break.

The point of arrival is again at the departure point of the Mornera cable car, where you can then comfortably return to Monte Carasso.
