3 or 4 nights - extra available


Very Difficult



Why Book This Trip?

The 11th edition of the Stelvio Santini Granfondo will take place on the 4th of June 2023. This is your opportunity to climb the Stelvio and Mortirolo in one epic ride!

There is something for everyone with 3 routes available short, medium and long.
Our weekend trip includes a 3 or 4 night stay in Bormio. Stay for 4 nights and arrive on Thursday if you want to tackle the Passo Gavia. It’s not on the Gran Fondo route but it would be a waste to come all this way and to not ride this beauty as well! For Friday arrivals, we do a warm up ride to Cancano on Saturday to warm up for the main event on Sunday.

Spread your payments: Our payment plan is an interest-free payment method where you will have the opportunity to spread payment for your booking.

Guided Warm Up Rides: Daily warm up rides taking in the beautiful Dolomites led by our ride guides. Arrive on Thursday and we’ll tackle the Gavia on Friday. Cancano ride on Saturday.

Mechanical Support: Our expert mechanics are on hand all weekend to do any work needed on your bike or hire one of our bikes with 11/34 cassette.

Post ride socials: This is a small group tour (12 -16 people) and we eat together and have a couple of post-ride beers on the terrace.
