Description

Garmisch - Lake Como

This alpine crossing through the beautiful Austrian and Swiss mountain scenery with our tour goal Lake Como is physically demanding.
A good physical condition and basic climbing skills are required. The breathtaking climbs are good passable with a roadbike.
This real trans-alpine feeling can be enjoyed without risk. There is enough time to enjoy our tour along the river Inn, in the beautiful Engadine and at Lake Como over a cup of coffee and to immerse ourselves in the cultural highlights.
Starting from Grainau we cycle in the direction of Tyrol and to Leermoos. Our first pass is at Namlos, and then we continue to the Valley of Lech. Over the Hahntennjoch we get to the Valley of Inn and over the Piller Höhe in Pitztal to Prutz. We follow the Inn and cycle over the Reschenpass to the Vinschgau. Over the Ofenpass we get to the Swiss National Park. Driving with a shuttle bus through a tunnel we arrive in Livigno. Via Forcula di Livigno and the Bernina Pass we ride down to the Engadine to Pontresina and St. Moritz. Along the Upper Engadine lake region we reach the Maloja Pass and from here we continue downhill towards Lake Como.

Details & stages
6:00 pm: In the evening we meet up for dinner in Grainau. Get to know each other, bike check, tour preparation and trip briefing based on maps.
Starting from Grainau it is a slight climb to Leermoos. Via a small side pass we cycle to the Valley of the Lech. From here it is a short ride in the direction of Arlberg and then it goes left uphill. At the beginning and the end, the Hahntennjoch is quite steep and offers a foretaste of the coming days. Arriving in Imst we have a lunch break. Over the Piller Höhe we first ride to Pitztal and then to the Valley of Inn and Prutz which is our final destination for today.
Today we follow the Inn upstream. Over the Norbertshöhe we cycle to Nauders and have a few additional meters of altitude until the Reschen Pass. Then it goes rapidly down to Vinschgau where we take a break. Shortly hereafter, the ascent begins over the lengthy Ofen Pass. A short downhill takes us to the Swiss National Park and the well known tunnel which leads to Livigno. A shuttle takes us through the tunnel. From there we follow a road where also racing professionals like to train.
We pedal smoothly until we follow up to Forcula di Livigno. A short run down and then we already are at our second steep climb to Bernina. From here we enjoy the view onto the Upper Engadine located right at the bottom of the Palü. On our descent from the Bernina to Pontresina the panoramic view gets even better. Further on along the Engadine’s lakes to the Maloja Pass. After the wonderful downhill from the Maloja Pass we finally get to our long desired destination – Lake Como. Our idyllic hotel is located right next to the lake and invites you to relax at the terrace. In the evening the chef will spoil you with a country-typical menu.
After breakfast: Departure of our shuttle back to Garmisch.
