tour description


Gorda is an enchanting terrace located at 1800 m with a view over the entire middle and lower Blenio Valley. It is a Summer and Winter holiday resort, with accommodation and refreshments in the Gorda hut, as well as an alp in the Summer months. The tour is suitable for all MTB formats: whether you want to comfortably bike on paved and dirt roads both uphill and downhill, whether you want to descend along a challenging trail, whether you are riding your MTB, e-Bike or Fat Bike, you will always find what suits you best. The Gorda hut is located on a large pasture above the alp houses; it has 30 beds, kitchen, dining room, modern and functional services. Detailed information on www.capannagorda-sanda.ch. From Olivone you can reach, on a comfortable dirt road, the paved road of the Lucomagno pass and follow it up to Camperio. You first continue on a dirt road up to Piancabella, then almost entirely on asphalt up to Gorda. For the return, you can choose several variants: the first faithfully retraces the ascent route; the second, also easy, reaches route 65 of SvizzeraMobile (MobileSwitzerland) at Tragon and on the same route it goes back to Olivone; the third winds along a challenging trail down to Camperio, and reaches Olivone on route 65: a real treat for enduro riders.
