Description

This ride feels far from civilization while remaining close to Bormio throughout. It's beautiful, challenging, and easily accessible, making it a great option for a sunny afternoon when you don't feel like venturing too far out of the valley.

From the Pravasio car park on the main Stelvio road, take the trail S533, immediately entering a beautiful forest of larch trees. You keep on climbing up, passing a few benches with lookout points, a botanical garden on your right and eventually a wide-open picnic area. The trail traverses Monte Reit and takes you up to Casina Bassa. There are a lot of ups and downs, rocks, and roots to watch out for throughout the ride. Eventually, the route opens out from the forest into pastureland, where you start to descend down to the village of Teragua via trails marked S511 and S531. Once in Teragua, cross over the river and follow the gravel track through the forest to Bormio.
