THE MIGHTY STELVIO!
After a 24km climb and 48 hairpin bends, you will reach the top of one of the highest Alpine passes, located at 2758 metres. This mountain pass has been on the Giro D’Italia course more than 20 times and is also on the bucket list of many a cycling fan!
In addition, the region offers numerous beautiful climbs such as the Passo Mortirolo, Passo Gavia, Lagi di Cancano and the new gem “Eita” so, we can easily put together a unique 3-day short bike trip for you.
