The Passo dello Stelvio is one of the most iconic cols that you can find in Europe. It is the second highest col of Europe and absolutely one of the hardest. Conquering the Stelvio is a personal goal which is on the bucket list of a lot of people. The views from the top and during the climbs are phenomenal. You can climb this col from three different sides and from two different countries. Of course it is most famous for its 48 hairpins.
As always the surroundings of this beautiful col are also worth cycling. Besides the Stelvio climbs there are a lot more very hard climbs. The valleys of the area are nice and flat so you can vary a lot between though climbs and relax cycling through the valley.
