Enjoy a quick escape to the heart of the Alps and conquer giants as Passo dello Stelvio, Passo Gavia and Mortirolo. Epic climbs that will stay in your heart (and legs) forever. In between the rides discover the charming village of Bormio, relax in refined thermal baths and savour the yummy alpine gastronomy.
We grew up here and know the place like the back of our hands. Join the ride for an unforgettable cycling adventure.
Day 1 - Welcome to the Alps (40km / 800m D+)
Welcome to Bormio: our charming hometown at the heart of the Alps. Settle into your cozy hotel and put yourself at ease. When ready hit the road for a nice warm up ride on quiet backroads around the valley before climbing up to the enchanted Cancano Lakes. Enjoy an after ride aperitivo and a magnificent dinner in our favourite local restaurant… It’s just the beginning.
Day 2 - The Stelvio loop (100km / 3000m D+)
Fuel up your energy at the breakfast table… We’re going to need it all! Stelvio Pass, the highest paved road in Italy, awaits to be conquered. Ride countless switchbacks on a spectacular loop that tackles both sides of this legendary mountain. After a well earned beer give some rest to your legs and relax at QC Terme Roman baths before a bountiful dinner of local delights.
Day 3 - Mortirolo and Gavia (110km / 3100m D+)
An epic day with two more iconic climbs to be crossed off the bucket list: the harsh ramps of Mortirolo, by many considered the hardest climb in Europe, and Passo Gavia, the legendary gateway to the northestearn Alps. Legs are screaming, we know it, but don’t give up! Breathe, raise your head and admire the pristine beauty of these mighty mountains. Spend the rest of the day exploring the charming village of Bormio before a well earned banquet.
Day 4 - Sunrise over the Alps (optional 30km / 600m D+)
If you can’t get enough of these beautiful mountain roads, hop on the bike and admire the magical beauty of the sun raising over the Alps. After the ride enjoy a last copious breakfast before we say goodbye. See you soon for your next adventure!
