Awesome landscape

Rode here from Bormio in Kate July 15. Beautiful ride, absolutely beautiful. Do it you won't be disappointed. Much quieter than Stelvio but still very challenging

Amazing place! We crossed it with our bike on our way to Lago Di Garda and it was so exciting! We stayed one night on the top of the mountain and it was a fantastic experience to walk among the Clouds.

The Gavia, is less traveled. Climbing it by bike is hard It has just one small bar/ restaurant at the top. Weather is somehow never good. The terrain at the top is harsh. But the views on the way are fantastic. If you are up for the challenge, it realy is worth it.

We travel in a motorcycle this summer, Passo Gavia is the narrowest and most demanding of the routes we did (we stayed 5 days in the Dolomites) but worth it because the scenery is very beautiful and exciting way. Not many cars, bikes and motorcycles almost alone.

Not as hard as the Stelvio but quieter and prettier for cyclists. Stop in Rifugio Bonetta at the top to look at the cycling memorabilia on their walls.
