Tips

  • Martin Donat

    The Pordoi is part of the famous "Pass Quartet" of the large Sellaronda around the Sella Group. At 2,239 meters above sea level, it is the highest paved pass in the Dolomites. It connects Arabba with Canazei and has often crossed the finish line at the Giro d’Italia.

    The Pordoi from Arabba is a great ascent - only the Stelvio Pass offers significantly more hairpin bends and the Dolomites offer a fantastic backdrop. The climb itself is even and rather moderate, so that you can experience the mountains with great pleasure.

    Epic road with the best views possible. The climbs are not too hard in that area, since you will not decend too far.

    Second pass on the Sellaronda, if you drive from Selva counterclockwise.

    Mythical port of this area, its length and steep slopes makes you enjoy a lot in all its ascent.

    Nice climb, as part of the 'Sella Ronda' even better. Beautifull views everywhere.

    The counter-clockwise Sellaronda is particularly recommended

    Great climb to ride from both sides. From Arabba very scenic with wide panorama view, from Canazei a fascinating road through the woods with view on the big rocky sella massif.

    The most demanding of the four passes on the Sellaronda, but easy to do.

    It joins Arabba, a fraction of the municipality of Livinallongo del Col di Lana in Val Cordevole in the Venetian province of Belluno, with Canazei, a municipality in the Val di Fassa in the province of Trento. Along the descent towards Canazei you can connect with the Sella pass, turning right after 6.5 km and climbing for 5.5 km, to reach Val GardenaThe Alta via n. 2, which starts from Bressanone and reaches Feltre, crosses the Pordoi pass.From the Pass you have the quickest access to the Sella group (whose highest elevation is the Piz Boè, 3152 m) by means of the cable car produced by Hölzl which, with a single jump, reaches 2950 m a.s.l. Sass Pordoi, the southernmost spur of the Sella Group.On the Venetian side of the pass there is an ossuary that collects, in a common tomb, the remains of 454 Germanic fallen and of 8,128 Austro-Hungarian fallen during the Great War, coming from various war cemeteries. On the external shelves, on the other hand, the remains of 842 German Wehrmacht soldiers from the Second World War, coming from the cemeteries located in the Belluno area, are buried in single or combined tombs. Although it does not have impossible slopes and difficulties (average slope just over 6% on both sides), it is famous among cyclists both for the beauty of the territory in which it is immersed, and because it has been climbed since the 40s by the Giro d 'Italy. It is also one of the passes included in the Sellaronda and the Maratona delle Dolomiti, a cycling long-distance race.Since 2006 it has also been the scene of the amateur hillclimb valid for the AmaTour (the Amateur Cycle World Cup): the Arabba - Passo Pordoi [
