  • Day 1

    Tirano. Arrival at your hotel

    At only 2 kilometres from the Swiss border, Tirano is located at the crossroads between Valtellina and Valposchiavo and is the terminus of the “Bernina Express”, a spectacular mountain railway, which climbs over the Alps and was declared a World Heritage Site in 2008.

  • Day 2

    Tirano–Grosio (35 km).

    Along the cycle path “Sentiero Valtellina” you go up along the river Adda as far as Grosio, an ancient medieval village dominated by two castles but inhabited since prehistoric times. After visiting the park and the Romanesque church of San Giorgio you pedal back to Tirano.

  • Day 3

    Tirano–St. Moritz (25 km).

    Leaving Tirano on the “Bernina Express” you travel across the beautiful Swiss alpine scenery as far as the Bernina Pass from where the downhill stretch to Pontresina and then St. Moritz begins. St. Moritz is the best known tourist resort of the Engadine, famous for its hot springs and stunning ski slopes.

  • Day 4

    St. Moritz–Chiavenna (50 km).

    Along the plateau of the Upper Engadine surrounded by mountains and forests you come across the lakes of Silvaplana, Champfèr and Sils. Once at the Maloja Pass, not far from the source of the river Inn, with a short private transfer you go down to Val Bregaglia and continue cycling until you enter the Italian territory where the Cycle Route of Val Chiavenna begins.

  • Day 5

    Chiavenna–Colico (30 km).

    The course of the river Mera takes you from Chiavenna to Lake Mezzola. Then you continue southwards along the “Pian di Spagna Nature Reserve” until you come across the river Adda, which flows into the Lake Como. Once in Colico, on the slopes of the Alps Orobie, you can relax on the lakefront beach or you can reach the nearby town of Piona to visit its famous Cistercian abbey.

  • Day 6

    Colico–Sondrio (50 km).

    Along the bike path of the “Sentiero Valtellina” you reach Morbegno, known for the typical Bitto cheese. You continue always on the valley floor as far as the Sanctuary of the “Madonna of Sassella”, on the threshold of the town of Sondrio, the regional capital of the Valtellina.
