All you need to know about the Bormio 360 project.

Where does the route start from?

The Bormio 360 trail is a loop, so there’s no beginning and no end. You can start wherever you like.



When is the best time of year to go?

The entire trail is viable from June to September. Some stages are also accessible in May and October, depending on weather conditions.



Are all stages open?

Yes. For summer 2022 only, part of stage 4 will use an alternative route along a paved road as a new section is due to be built. Construction has been delayed due to severe weather in the area.



How many days does it take to cover the whole trail?

There are 10 stages covering 140km. On foot it usually takes around 10 days, but this depends on your level of fitness. By mountain bike you can cover 2-3 stages in one day, but again this is up to you.



Is there anywhere to eat along the route?

Not all stages have a refreshment stop. In the description of each stage you will find information on places to eat and sleep.



Are there charging stations for e-bikes?

Yes, and more are being added all the time. You can find information on where to find them in the description of each stage.



What are totems and where can I find them?

Totems are points along the trail where you can stop and admire the view, take a few photos and read about the special features of that particular stage. There is one per stage at particularly panoramic points.



What is the STS?

The Single Track Scale is made up of six levels of difficulty, numbered from the easiest, S0, to the hardest, S5. Along the Bormio 360 trail there are tracks classified from S0 to S3.
