    The Gardena Pass is one of the four Sella Ronda passes and can be reached from both Corvara and Selva Val Gardena. It is located at an altitude of 2,121 meters below the mighty north face of the Sellastock. When you start in Val Gardena, you first have to go to Plan de Gralba and continue along winding roads. Spectacular, the road now passes below the northern walls of the Murfreitspitzen before it becomes steeper just before the transition. The average gradient is eight percent over 10.5 kilometers and 560 vertical meters. Alternatively, Corvara can be chosen as a starting point. The route is about one kilometer shorter.

    Great to drive from Selva. At the cable car station you can park well and cheaply.
    The beginning is until the turn-off grödnerjoch / sella crisp, but then it's easy to drive down to the pass as there are longer flats in between. Upstairs, you could eat something, in the cold seasons, it is advisable to leave quickly so as not to cool down

    Beautiful route between the rock towers of the Dolomites. The almost park-like landscape at the foot of the rugged rock towers is great and the track is almost ideal for racing. The slope is even, the road is well run and also in the downhill a real pleasure. The whole Sella Ronda is very popular in the summer with all road users, who really wants to enjoy the Val Gardena, is recommended to drive in the early morning.

    Together with Passo Sella, it is the one from which the view sweeps most of the Dolomites

    It's easier to ride from the side of Val Gardena. The view is even better when you are at the top station of Cir ski lift. You can also reach that spot by mountain bike. There are really cool downhill sections to Corvara from Passo Gardena.
