The Stelvio Pass/Stilfser Joch

The Stelvio Pass/Stilfser Joch in the Ortles Region

The Mountain Pass in Stelvio National Park

Located 2,757m a.s.l. between the Ortles region and Bormio in Veltlin, Stelvio Pass is the highest mountain pass in Italy. With 48 bends just on the South Tyrol side, the Stelvio pass road is an internationally recognized and popular challenge for cyclists and bikers. The so-called King stage of the Giro d’Italia is a must for cycling fans, since every true racing professional must conquer this route at least once in his or her career.

The pass is also a big draw for winter sports fans, since the area below the Geislerspitze mountain contains one of the last summer ski slopes in the whole of the Alps. Cross country ski fans will find three different ski runs on the slopes of the Ortles. The high-altitude glacier slope at the foot of the Hohen Schneide (literally “High Edge”, known in Italian as Monte Cristallo) is particularly challenging.
