Starting point is the key junction of Samedan; finish is the town of Poschiavo. Despite the high-alpine terrain, the route - which for extensive sections is a single-track trail - is passable throughout.
The northern approach is characterised by long stretches with a very gentle gradient, interrupted by a couple of short, steep climbs. The view of the dazzling glaciers of the Bernina massif is just one of many highlights. From Pru dal Vent, above Alp Grüm, there is a magnificent view of the Lago di Poschiavo.
The piazza in Poschiavo has a wonderful, unmistakably Mediterranean, charm: the Italian border is close by.

Incidentally, you will pass by the Cascata da Bernina (mountain stream) on this bike tour, just like Danny MacAskill and Claudio Caluori did in the "Home of Trails" video.
