This tour is considered one of the most beautiful of the Alta Valtellina, a tour that goes between Italy and Switzerland

The start of this route is located at the Torri di Fraele, where just near the end of the climb, we will find large parking spaces, where we can leave our cars.

Once prepared we will begin to bike the dirt road that leads us first to the small lake of Scale and then always following the dirt road along the two beautiful lakes of San Giacomo and Cancano II.



At the end of the second lake the dirt road, which could also be covered by cars, ends and we enter on a wide path with stony bottom, towards Val Mora, but only for a few hundred meters, until the trail splits in two and we will keep the left towards Acqua del Gallo(Livigno's Lake).


It will start now a stretch of up and down on a wide track, till we will reach the ponte dell'acqua del gallo, where we will face a short, but quite challenging climb.

Once we will pass this point, we will start a long singletrail with always short ups and downs until we reach Lake Livigno where the track narrows and we follow a descent, not difficult, but quite exposed and with a landslide bottom.



At the end of this downhill ,almost at the same height as the lake, we will begin a long climb with high slopes, always around 9/12%, a series of hairpin leads us to Alpe del Gallo(2080 m.a.s.l.). The climb alternates moments where the bottom is composed by roots to other moments where you climb along meadows. Once at Alpe del Gallo the slopes tend to decrease until they reach the Giufplan



From Giufplan we will follow a short downhill towards a small hut, where we will turn on right and start the climb again on a dirt road with slight slopes, until we reach the Doss del Termel, from where the descent towards the Alp Mora begins.


This downhill is very beautiful and not difficult, the only most challenging moments are the initial sections where the only difficulty is due to the high descending slope.


Once at Alp Mora we will bike for at least 1 km into the beautiful Val Mora towards Santa Maria, until we find a sign on our right ,with a symbol of the path, that will make us turn on right and start a part of this trail with ups and downs towards Cancano.



The first part of this downhill takes place in an open valley where we follow a wide track immersed in the beautiful meadows of Val Mora.


PSlowly the path will become narrower and become a beautiful singletrail, very flow. We will move from the right to the left of the valley and ,from now, the path has some exposed points. As fast as we can, we will reach the early point where we had taken the path to Acqua del Gallo


Once again at the lakes of Cancano we will not retrace the road we had followed in advance but we will make a tour of the lakes until we reach the hut of Solaz and then return to the torri di Fraele.


Our gpx file reaches the second dam and crosses it and is ideal for those who are already tired or want to come back to the car as soon as possible.
