This route is suitable for riders who don't fear overcoming a steep climb incorporating a difference in altitude of 1,000 metres, in order to then enjoy the track, which acts as a link road to San Romerio. The physical and mental effort is rewarded with rambling views.

all details

The climb, which starts immediately after leaving Poschiavo and continues until you get to the hamlet of Cansumé, is not particularly challenging and perfect for riders who prefer to approach altitude gradually. The view sweeps across large areas of the west side of the valley and its peaks. At the hairpin bend before the alpine farms, you leave the tarmacked road and continue first along a rough track and then the bridle path towards Gügliel and Balegna. From there you take the gravel track, which leads to the highest point, Sclupetoir at 1,906 metres altitude, of the route. A break at the little group of alpine farms to enjoy the view of the valley is a must.

           

The route continues downhill and leads straight to San Romerio. After viewing the picturesque little church and tasting delicious Poschiavo specialities on the alp you head along the rough track to Piaz.

           

The ride continues on tarmac. After roughly one kilometre towards Brusio you turn off to Garbela via Selvaplana in order to take the trail to Miralago. There the clear water of the Poschiavo Lake tempts the bravest riders to take a dip while others can take in the picture postcard view from the terrace of the Restaurant Miralago. Along the lakeshore and via Le Prese the route ends with a leisurely, flat section in Poschiavo.

Tips, hints and links

San Romerio

Die Alp San Romerio mit dem gleichnamigen Kirchlein liegt nah am Himmel und am felsigen Abgrund. Die Kappelle wurde 1106 geweiht, weist jedoch auch Bauelemente späterer Epochen auf und gehört heute zur Diözese Tirano im Veltlin, Italien. Die Pilgerfahrt und das traditionelle Fest zu Ehren des Heiligen Remigius finden jährlich am letzten Sonntag im Juli statt. Der Volksmund sagt, dass wer auch nur ein einziges Mal das Kirchlein ganz umrundete, für immer von seinen Krankheiten und Plagen befreit sei – da ihm jedoch der tödliche Sturz ins ferne Tal gewiss wäre... San Romerio bietet dem Wanderer einen betörenden Ausblick auf den See, das obere und untere Puschlav und das Veltlin.
