Climb Summary

Passo Gavia from Bormio is the much easier route to the top of the pass.  No tunnel and much milder grade - 5.26% versus 8% from Ponte di Legno.  This route is scenic (not quite as breathtaking as the traditional side) and is a very nice out-and-back with both sides tacked on - 50 miles (80km) with 9,000’ (2,743).  

With Stelvio, one of the best spots to finish in Europe . . .
