Bike routes Bormio

The bike routes Bormio unwinding through the Stelvio National Park proposed by our Bike Hotel will take you to locations of breathtaking natural beauty.

Bormio > Stelvio

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)

  • Length: 21,4 km
  • Ascent: 1517 m
  • Max elevation: 2763 m
  • Difficulty: medium/difficult paved
  • Type: paved

Bormio > Mortirolo/Gavia

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%. That’s a real challenge!
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.

  • Length: 102,66 km
  • Ascent: 3172 m
  • Max elevation: 2620 m
  • Difficulty: difficult
  • Type: paved

Bormio > Passo del Foscagno > Livigno > Passo del Forno > Passo Umbrail > Bormio

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. Please, use the special shuttle service as cycling in the tunnel is forbidden. The climb to Passo del Forno is followed by the descent to Santa Maria, followed by the climb to Passo Umbrail and the descent to Bormio.

  • Length: 108,47 km
  • Ascent: 2930 m
  • Max elevation: 2495 m
  • Difficulty: difficult
  • Type: paved and dirt patch

Bormio > Laghi di Cancano

This is a panoramic uphill climb with a series of bends that lead to Cancano lakes, just a few kilometers from Bormio.

  • Length: 29 km
  • Ascent: 735 m
  • Max elevation: 1950 m
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Type: paved and dirt patch

Bormio > Tirano > Passo del Bernina > Livigno > Bormio

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.
