Wednesday 25/07, half day enduro tour in Livigno

Meeting at 12.00 noon at the Skill Centre in Via Isola, afternoon dedicated to riding on the most beautiful trails of Livigno, with the assistance of ski lifts. Duration about 4 hours. Overnight stay in a hotel in Livigno.

Thursday 26/07

Departure from Livigno with destination in Val Grosina! It’s probably the most challenging day covering a distance of 35 km, an elevation gain of 1200 m and 1900 m altitude drop! A completely new experience, even for regular visitors to Livigno and Alta Valtellina. We cross no less than 3 different valleys, along a newly prepared and now fully accessible trail. Overnight stay in a mountain chalet in Eita, in Val Grosina.

Friday 27/07

A great day of “downhill” in Val Grosina, with two climbs, one ride and one with the aid of a shuttle, offering us wonderful views over the entire valley but above all amazing trails surrounded by nature and history. In fact, part of the trails are military paths that have recently been renovated, where we can also stop to see the trenches built during the Great War and that were part of the “Cadorna” defensive line. The day’s ride covers a total of 27 km with an altitude gain of 800 m and…. no fewer than 2900 m altitude drop, a thrilling experience! At the end of the day a shuttle takes us to Bormio for our overnight stay in hotel.

Saturday 28/07

Bormio to Santa Caterina. We will spend the first part of the day on the fantastic trails of Bormio’s Bike Park that descend from Bormio 3000 to an altitude of 2000m. In the afternoon we follow a wonderful traverse that descends on the opposite side. Starting on very rocky ground, we will then pass by some colourful little Alpine lakes and continue on a trail with some particularly technical sections which, after a climb of about twenty minutes, will take us to Santa Caterina Valfurva. A total of 27 km, with a climb of 300 m altitude gain and no less than 2900 m altitude drop! Overnight stay in a hotel in Santa Caterina.

Sunday 29/07

A grand finale with a day of authentic “Enduro” riding on the trails of Santa Caterina, venue of one stage of the 2016 SuperEnduro circuit, though with some additions! 25 km with 400 m altitude gain and 2250 m drop. Imagine reaching the mouth of a glacier with your mtb, while enjoying some amazing views and riding along trails that will be difficult to forget! Return from Valfurva to Livigno by shuttle.
