Epic Rides in Italy
This Epic Ride takes place on the Stelvio Pass, over the The Alps in Italy and Switzerland. At an elevation of 2,757 m (9,045 ft) above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, 7 m (23 ft) below France’s Col de l’Iseran (2,764 m (9,068 ft)). The pass is part of the Stelvio National Park, which is the largest in the Italian Alps. It was established in 1935, and covers the Ortles-Cevedale massif, as well as some minor chains that flank it. Wildlife in the park include deer, chamois, ibex, and wolves.
