The 4 Passes are part of the history of the Giro d’Italia: Passo Gardena, Passo Campolongo, Passo Pordoi and Passo Sella. A dip in the history of mountain climbing where the “Big” have made dream and live thrilling emotions. In the 54 km you can climb even over 2,000 meters to descend steeply and find a “breathtaking” climb and then down again, until stretches that allow us to regain our breath and strength.

From Sottoguda you can reach Arabba by car as a starting point. Those who “have leg” and much to give, can start climbing the 8 km that lead to the Fedaia Pass and descend to Canazei (10 km), turn to the SS 48 leading to the circuit (5 km).
