Narrow alleys, cozy cafés and dreamy Italian charm. Time for another espresso then it's off to ride more around the Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio. Here, in one of Europe's largest nature reserves — high up in Northern Italy — fantastic natural discoveries await you — all readily explorable by bike. After all, in an around Bormio, everything revolves around cycling.

Stelvio National Park is a place where rides can switch characters between challenging and flowing. All it takes is a moment. And with miles of trails suitable for both beginners and experts alike, it's the perfect place for bikers of all levels. Fancy a challenge? Crank up those hills. Want to take it easy? Take the lift up to the top of the trailhead and enjoy the descent back down. Whatever you're into, it's catered for here. In fact, even after your hours on the bike are long over, the dolce vita continues: It's time to enjoy Italian delicacies in quaint, authentic restaurants, to enjoy the views from a cozy mountain hut, or to stroll the historic streets of the old town. After all of that, if you're still not satisfied, you can grab a gelato and relax in the world-famous thermal baths — ready for your next day on the trails.

Bormio lies in the Valtellina, the valley of the Adda, in the north of Italy, very close to the Swiss border and supposedly only a stone's throw away from Austria and southern Germany. However, the journey through the middle of the Alps requires a certain amount of patience: there is no motorway to Bormio. Instead, various pass roads lead into Valtellina. Arrival by train is possible, but then the journey - which leads via Milan — becomes part of the adventure. From there, it takes another two hours by regional train to Tirano. The last part to Bormio is by bus. Whether by train or car — it is best to plan several days directly for your stay in Bormio. That makes the long journey all the more worthwhile and you will have, above all, more time to explore the area.
