Lago di Luzzone tunnel

The scary Lago di Luzzone tunnel

Located in the district of Blenio, in the canton of Ticino, Switzerland, the Lago di Luzzone tunnel is a very challenging drive.

Located in the northern part of Blenio Valley, the road through the tunnel is paved. It’s located at the southern shore of the reservoir. The road is very narrow. For this reason it is better to stop to hear if there is another vehicle in the tunnel.

The tunnel was built in 1998. It’s 833 meters long with a 2.50m height limit and 2.70m width limit. High risk of rock slides.
