Gavia Pass, Bormio

(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
High up in the Italian Alps lies Gavia Pass, the mountain range's tenth-highest paved road. This steep and challenging road is not for everyone, but adventure-seekers are rewarded with dramatic views of the Sondrio and Brescia regions. Because the road is quite narrow, it is best tackled by motorbike or bicycle. At an average incline of 16%, count on a hard and long climb. At the summit, reward yourself at the restaurant and take in the vast views. Put Gavia Pass into our Bormio vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bormio.

  • Step maybe not very well known by bikers but bikers beautiful climb from Bormio beautiful panorama during the Summit in order to pitch restaurant mandatory rest and enjoy some typical dish. The road is closed at certain times of the year

  • A rugged path, primordial, leads to a pass that evokes faraway age causes the desire to climb the steep slopes, towards the alpine peaks.
