“Beautiful Drive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We were lucky to drive over Gavia Pass in great weather, with clear blue skies and no wind so we were able to really appreciate the stunning views and remote mountains in this area. It was a relatively quiet drive for Italy, with not too many cars which was just as well - the road is extremely narrow and steep in places, and at times with few places to pass when you meet another car. An awesome road trip. Recommended.

“A hidden Gem when traveling on a Motorcycle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

When you plan to drive to Bormio on a motorcycle, the Passo di Gavia is the route to chose. Very small and winding roads but a lot of fun in a captivative landscape.

“Good viewpoint to Adamello Mountain Group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

My wife and I walked here from the Berni Rifugio just down the valley. In fact the day before we walked the lengthof the pass but on a balcony route high up on the east side of the valley from Val Forni.
There is a picturesque lake near the pass head and a good retsaurant/cafe where we ate lunch. It is verypopular with walkers,cyclists and bikers.

It is an attractive area and views south to the Adamello group are good.
