Description

The Col d‘Anzana is indisputably one of the mountainbike tours that belongs in the portfolio of every singletrail lover. The route starts in Puschlav and comprises one of the longest descents in the Alps after Tirano.

Ideally, you will start the tour by shuttle bus at the Col d‘Anzana by Poschiavo station. This leads via Brusio to the Alp Pescia Bassa in the Val dal Saent. It is also possible to handle this route on your own, but just the climb up to this alp comprises a climb of 1200 metres - and then many lack the strength afterwards for the demanding downhill descent. From Pescia Bassa one finally cranks up to the upper Alp. Branch off to the left and you will have to push your bike until the Col d‘Anzana 2'222 metres above the lake. The view is phenomenal: deep down below lies the Valtellina, to the rear the Bernina range rises up with the Piz Palü, and in front of us is the famous 1785 metre descent. The path initially winds along the mountain flanks to the east, but then becomes increasingly steep and winds up as a super trail going downhill to Alp Lughina. Always follow the trail markings, given that the path in the lower part is a little rough. Finally, you will reach Tirano and can travel back to Poschiavo on the Rhaetian Railway.

Tip: The last train with allowed bike transport leaves Tirano in the direction of Poschiavo at 17.40
