"Stilfser Joch and Passo Gavia" Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio by Anjutka

A nice 2 days trip from my actual base Telfs

Last weekend was exceptional for this summer - it had good weather. So I got a chance for a spontaneous two days trip over two of the most exciting passes in the Eastern Alps - Stilfser Joch (Stelvio) and Passo Gavia. Stilfser Joch is extremely popular among drivers, bikers and cyclists while Gavia, which is more difficult to reach still remains for the real enthusiasts of extreme Alpine roads. Both are in the Nationalpark Stilfser Joch -Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio stretching over the provinces South Tirol (Alto Adige), Sondrio and Brescia.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Incredibly nice scenery
  • Cons:Ugly buildings on Passo Stelvio
  • In a nutshell:A woderful variation of landscapes

    I was on a summer skiing holiday once down in Prad/Prato and we drove up the Stelvio pass each day. In the beginning, it felt crazy, but it was pretty cool. Did a lot of hiking in the Swiss National Park, too! Wonderful area. Thanks for sharing!
