The alpine landscape which characterizes Alta Valtellina is a must for bikers. There are lots of paths from 1000 m. to 3000 m. that allow bikers to compete with their skills and have fun spending pleasant days immersed in nature between valleys and unspoilt corners of rare beauty. The most famous race for mountain bikers is the “Gran Fondo Alta Valtellina, an annual event held in late July which has two locations: the classic 39 km long and 67 km Marathon with a height difference of 2300 m.
The red train of Bernina leaves Tirano at 492 meters above sea level and reaches 2257 meters at the “Bernina Hospice” and then 1775 meters in St. Moritz, crossing stunning alpine sceneries. The red train is equipped with modern carriages from which you can admire the landscape all around. This tour offers the opportunity to spend a few hours in close contact with nature, to be caressed by the breeze and to breathe in the scent of the woods.
Since July 2008 the Rhaetian Railway is a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
