In addition to being one of the historic climbs of the Giro d'Italia and road cycling, the Gavia Pass is the perfect place to start some of the best off-road trails you will ever do.

The Gavia Pass is an institution among racing cyclists - of course, the ascent is the main challenge. Climbing up countless asphalt curves to 2,612 meters is probably not high on your mountain biker wish list. Nevertheless, a lot of great trails start up here. The solution: a shuttle service. There is a wide range of these in Bormio, you can find information about them here, for example: bormiobike.it/en-shuttle.aspx
In any case, you can enjoy an impressive view at the top of the pass. And before you start, strengthen yourself again in the hut.

Highlight. Be sure to stop at the small lake and take a picture.
Enjoy the view and enjoy the accomplished ascent.

Whether with the road bike or with the mountain bike. It really is worthwhile pedaling up there once. It makes you really proud once you have reached the top.

Very popular road pass for racing cyclists. This is not only because of the impressive road and the magnificent mountain scenery, but also because it is often part of the Giro d`Italia. So you will find in the Rifugio on the 2618 meter high pass many memorabilia of past tours such as the famous "Maglia rosa". For mountain bikers, the pass is also known and loved. If you are on an alpine cross on the Albrecht route, you will come to the stage town of Pezzo via this pass.

Scenic mountain pass at 2612 meters. Involved occasionally in demanding mountain stages of the Giro d'Italia.

2618 meters high - and regularly the highlight of the Giro d'Italia. The southern ramp has only been asphalted since the 1990s, and the lane is very narrow.

Great landscape. And one has to take a picture in front of the sign.

Climb the famous Gavia Pass. A thing that should be on every cyclist's bucket list. Once at the top, the spritzer is well deserved. And the proof photo under the sign.
