Cima Coppi: Bormio – Stelvio Pass
An emblem of the cycling world, the Stelvio Pass is known as Cima Coppi, the highest point reached by the riders during the Giro d’Italia race. It can be reached from 3 sides: from Bormio, from Prato allo Stelvio in South Tyrol and from S. Maria Mustair in Switzerland. The Valtellina route from Bormio climbs up along the Braulio Valley, with its formidable waterfall and a succession of 40 switchbacks through an untocuched wilderness. The silence of nature is only interrupted as the cyclists pass and by the whistle of the woodchucks. The chamois, ibex and eagles who make their home here in the Stelvio National Park make this an unforgettable and enjoyable ride.

Her Majesty the Ortles: Prato allo Stelvio – Stelvio Pass
The South Tyrolean side of the climb to the Stelvio Pass is an unique road with a rapid succession of switchbacks in the final kilometres. The base of the slope, with its typical Tyrolean chalets, suddenly gives way to the view of Ortles, the mountain that overlooks the valley with its year-round glaciers.
