Passo dello Stelvio

Updated: Dec 22, 2019

Looking for switchback-heaven? The Stelvio Pass holds what you seek! To carry on the legacy from Tour de Danube, Blu Acciaio and Friends decided to cross the Alps, with the Stelvio Pass as the highlight. We started out from Kiel in Germany and reached the Alps at Schwangau in Germany, after some 1000 kilometers and 10 days of riding. Three days later we reached the Stelvio Pass, famous for its many switchbacks, 45 to be precise and they are all numbered.. After completing the climb, we enjoyed a few more down-paced stages along Lake Como, before pedaling on to Malpensa and our flight home to Norway. Our conclusion: The Stelvio Pass is a must-do for you touring bicyclists out there!

Below is our final route. It is exact and based on GPX-files we recorded along the way. Check out our GPX-files and photos below the map.
