The best time to go to the Italian Alps is between June and September. All the climbs usually open in May, but the weather can make riding challenging especially on the highest peaks in May. Any later than September, and you risk snow on the high ground.

Itinerary - We can customise this trip for you!

 

Day 1: Arrive in Bormio

We recommend a morning flight. After arriving you will be met and transferred to your chosen hotel in Bormio. The transfer will take about 2h30. You will have time to build your bike (or pick up your hire bike), take in the magnificent scenery of the Bormio valley and grab a beer on the balcony. 

 

Day 2: Mortirolo and Gavia

Todays loop takes in two of the most famous passes you can ride from Bormio. The Passo del Mortirolo is famously hard. Almost entirely submerged in dense woods, noodling tortuously through 39 hairpins. The section between San Matè at kilometre three and just beyond Piaz de l'Acqua at kilometre eight, in particular, has a gradient constantly above ten per cent. 

The Passo di Gavia has gained notoriety within the cycling community due to the Giro d’Italia’s attempts up the mountain in May and June when the road can still be banked with snow, if not completely unpassable.

Todays ride is truly iconic, and will test your legs and give you breath taking views. 

Day 3: The Stelvio

Todays ride tackles the most famous climb in the valley from both sides. The Stelvio is one of Italy’s great national landmarks, it remains today, arguably the purest, most exhilarating, most spellbinding mountain playground accessible to cyclists. In our opinion the view back dnw the 48 hairpins of the Stelvio is one of the best views you can get while in the saddle. 

 

Day 4: Departure day - Cancano and Bormio 2000

There should be time for one last ride. The climbs of Cancano and Bormio 2000 are both local and you can take on one or both of these before we transfer you back to the airport. We recommend you get an afternoon or evening flight. If you want to extend this trip, this is possible. Simply contact us.
