Road Cycling Highlight
The Umbrail is a beautiful pass, albeit a little overshadowed by its more famous neighbor. A tour from the Vinschgau up the Umbrail, over to Bormio and back over the Stelvio Pass is an absolute dream route that can only be recommended.
It's a bit of a shame that the road is now fully paved, until a few years ago the Umbrail was one of the few remaining road passes that was still gravel. But of course it is now much more pleasant to drive with the Renner - especially downhill!

Only for mountain bikers:
From the Stelvio Pass up to the Rifugio Garibaldi (100 m ascent, very steep, push), eat/drink something there and then drive down the old military road/trail to the Umbrail Pass! From then on mostly back on the main road to St. Maria.
