Our top 5 views on the Haute Route Stelvio


The Haute Route Stelvio is not just a race! It’s also a chance to meet with fellow riders and ride across the most famous cols and amazing cycling roads of the Italian Alps. Beyond the sporting challenge, you will have the opportunity to discover breath-taking views over the snow-capped mountains under the shadow of the early morning sun.

Next June, don’t forget to look up from your handlebar or take a short break to appreciate the overwhelming beauty of the landscapes surrounding you!
