Look at the views! The 3-countries cycling region offers some of the best pass routes for racing cyclists. The high Alpine passes cross borders and can take many cyclists to their limits. The winding road upwards, however, is worth all the effort: An extended cycling tour combines, for example, the ice of Tyrol’s glaciers with the Mediterranean climate of neighbouring Italy.
The famous Stelvio Pass or the panoramic road on the Kaunertal Glacier are just two of the incredible places that make the region the cycling mecca of the Alps. Even the toughest of the tough know this: The legendary three-countries Giro that starts and finishes in Nauders and the “Kaunertal Glacier King” captivate thousands of cyclists from all over the world every year. Recreational racing cyclists will also find plenty to keep them amused on long-distance cycling routes through the Tyrolean Oberland.
