The route from Livigno to The Forcola di Livigno (2316m) runs on the new bike path and the pass road and is ideal for rolling in. The route continues to the right from the pass road and follows the attractive "Val Minur Marmotta Trail", which connects the Forcola di Livigno with the Forcola Minor, which reaches the highest point at the Motta Bianca (2561m) and continues to the Ospizio Bernina. 

The route to Poschiavo leads past Lago Bianco (2234m) to the starting point of the 1,200-metre single trail experience "Bernina Express" to Poschiavo. The partly difficult trail (S2, partly large stone slabs) runs via Alp Grüm (2091m), Cavaglia (1703m) and Cadera (1461m), whereby the railway line is crossed again and again. In Poschiavo (1014m) it is worthwhile to have a coffee in the piazza and enjoy the Italian flair of the place before taking up the ride on the Bernina Railway. As an alternative to this, the «Poschiavino Trail», along the Poschiavinos, is recommended.

From Poschiavo, the Rhaetian Railway takes you up the entire altitude difference back to Bernina Suot station (2046m) and on to Pontresina (1805m). To get to the place of the day's destination, you have to change in Pontresina to the train towards Scuol-Tarasp. Optionally, this route can be covered by bike from Bernina Suot past the Morteratsch Glacier to Pontresina (1805m). Then continue on a gravel road to Punt Muragl (1738m), past the Engadin Airport to the stage destination S-chanf.


Due to the numerous alternatives (Poschiavino Trail or Bernina Express Singletrail, departure from Bernina or Pontresina by bike or train), detailed route planning is indispensable. It is strongly recommended to take maps with you.
