Stelvio

A proposal of great value packed in 4 days in the saddle, is obviously dedicated to the Lombardy Alps with their jewel in the crown, the majestic Stelvio pass, the second highest vehicle accessible pass in Europe (2,758 m above sea level), famous for its 48 hairpin turns on the Tyrolean face and 36 hairpin turns on the Lombard side. An excellent opportunity for those who want to live close and in a special way the Stelvio International Metzeler Motorcycle Rally, now at its 40th edition, and experience the thrill of challenging Alpine roads in Italy, but also in Switzerland and Austria.

It is a ride through jaw-dropping high-mountain landscapes . To water your mouth here is the list of the major Alpine passes that we’ll cross during our roamings: Stelvio, Julierpass, Bernina, Forcola, Foscagno, Gavia, Resia, Aprica…

The Alps with their exceptional beauty and majesty are the ideal scenery for a pleasure tour. The variety of landscapes offers new perspectives every few kilometers, passing from beautiful forests to flowered meadows, from green lakes to rocky peaks nearly touching the sky, alternating colors and materials, thus granting us endless emotions. A ride through the unspoilt nature, where the heartwarming background of the unchanged snow-capped peaks captures you. A pleasure for eyes, mind and soul that everyone should reward oneself with to recover from daily stress.

Today high mountain resorts offer to the lovers of nature, healthy lifestyle and fresh air, a holiday the which quality is as high as the peaks which surround you. This is because the mountain people know what the real quality of life is and love offering it to their guests. Villages are often enchanting with their charmingly blossomed chalets and the most famous resorts offer one of the best level services, facilities and shopping in the country. The hotels are very well specialized in pampering you: in the widespread spas, at the table where the food is always plentiful and delicious, in the comfortable, cozy and relaxing rooms, even in winter for skiers with their bulky clothes…
