The Splügen Pass leads from the ancient Viamala region, with the gorge of the same name, directly to the Mediterranean lifestyle in the vibrant Italian town of Chiavenna. In the north, touring riders will enjoy lots of hairpin bends with attractive vantage points; in the south, the winding slope through the San Giacomo Valley. A realm of discovery, Viamala beckons you to take long walks such as on Via Spluga, the classic among cultural and long-distance routes. Splügen is considered one of the oldest and most representative of Graubünden’s mountain villages. In 1995, it was awarded the Wakker Prize for its preservation of historic structures. Montespluga, the Alpine village on the Italian end of the pass, is also a must-visit.
