We cycled to the lake from Bormio. There is a climb to the lake but it’s stunning. The colours of the lake are amazing. Road cyclists can cycle all the way round as the gravel is well compacted.

A stunning climb with amazing switchbacks as you get to the top 👍. The views from the summit are amazing

Lago Cancano is a beautiful surprise at the top of the “Little Stelvio” being a 9 km climb of about 7-8% grades just outside Bormio. Great scenery and fresh air. An excellent recovery after the big rides in this area
