Reduced-rate ascent

When the snow has bid farewell, Carì takes on a completely different appearance and is decked out in a blazing green. Between meadows and forests, the high-altitude village offers pleasant walks and ideal surroundings for a picnic.

The village of Faido, Carì, is renowned for its pistes and winter landscape. But there’s lots to enjoy in summer too. After getting out at the “Carì, Paese” postbus stop, there are plenty of recreational activities available from gentle rambles to more challenging hikes. The chairlift – which goes up to an altitude of 2,000 metres – is open from 2 July to 28 August 2022. Once at the top, you can either relax on the restaurant’s panoramic terrace or hike to Lake Carì set amidst wonderful alpine scenery. There’s a 20% discount available on the chairlift ride if you travel with PostBus. Simply ask for the voucher on board the Postbus that goes directly to Carì and present it at the chairlift with a valid transport ticket. A good reason to travel with PostBus!
