TRAILS AND TOURS
A paradise for mountain bikers in the heart of the Alps: this is the Bormio, Livigno, and Santa Caterina Valfurva mountain biking offer.
We are in Alta Rezia, a territory between Alta Valtellina (province of Sondrio) and Engadine (Grisons, Switzerland).
These valleys offer a number of opportunities for passionate mountain bikers to enjoy mountain – of course without neglecting the well known climbs Stelvio Pass, Gavia Pass and Mortirolo Pass made famous by professional cyclists.
Memorable trails at high altitudes, military roads still in good condition, dirt roads in the woods and near alpine lakes, cycling lanes at the valley bottom, bike parks and skill parks are just a few of the many alternatives to explore this stunning area and have fun with your mountain bike.
Furthermore, you can enjoy your MTB holiday thanks the Bormio thermal baths and its 3 spas, the local food and Valtellina wines, and the pure nature of Stelvio National Park.

Freeride, all mountain, enduro: the Bormio area offers the trails that best suit your needs.
Stelvio from Bormio:
Description: The route to Passo Stelvio from Bormio is one of the best known and most visited of the Alps. More than 30 bends, an average gradient of 7% (in a few places reaches 14%) and particularly hard and tiring ways (e.g. the last 3 km before getting to the pass)
Bormio – Mortirolo/Gavia
Description: This spectacular route starts and finishes in Bormio and is a challenge towards Passo Mortirolo and Passo Gavia. No doubts Mortirolo is the mountain pass with which all cyclists want to compete: 12,4 km, an ascent of 1300 m and a maximum gradient of 18%.
You will cycle along Passo Gavia from the most difficult side (the one from Brescia) but once you reach the top and go down to Santa Caterina and Bormio, it all becomes easier.
Description: The route involves Livigno, the famous duty-free zone on the border with Switzerland and Passo Umbrail, the highest paved pass in Switzerland. To get to Switzerland you will use the La Drossa tunnel.
Bormio V (Torre di Fraele-Lago di Cancano)
Description: This is a panoramic uphill climb with a series of bends that lead to Cancano lakes, just a few kilometers from Bormio.
Bormio Trip – Passo Bernina
Description: This is a particularly difficult and tiring route, especially from Tirano to Passo Bernina, via Lake Poschiavo. Going back to Bormio via Livigno, the popular duty-free area is easier and smoother.
