Stelvio Pass is a mountain pass in northern Italy at an elevation of 2,757 above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps with 48 turns. It is the most beautiful and exciting destination in our area. The pass is located in the Ortler Alps in Italy between Stilfs in South Tyrol and Bormio in the province of Sondrio. The Stelvio Pass was also picked by the British automotive show Top Gear as its choice for the greatest driving road in the world. This conclusion was reached after the team went in search of a road that would satisfy every petrolhead’s driving fantasies. The Stelvio Pass is open from May to October.

Umbrail Pass (2,501 m above sea level) is a high mountain pass on the Swiss-Italian border connecting Santa Maria in Val Müstair with Bormio in the Adda valley. On the Italian side, it connects to the Stelvio Pass road. It is currently the highest paved road in Switzerland. The pass is named after the Piz Umbrail, a nearby mountain peak. The Umbrail Pass is open from mid-April to mid-October.
