Poschiavo–San Romerio

The church of San Romerio can be clearly seen from Poschiavo. It is located 800 meters above the valley floor on a rocky outcrop and has long been known to mountain bikers as one of the most rewarding destinations in Val Poschiavo.
Nothing in life is free. There is no gondola, no train or shuttle up to the San Romerio church. No wonder there is nobody around, either on the small road from Poschiavo to Alp Cansumé, or later, on the wonderful, smoothly flowing single trail in the direction of Gügliel. The view sweeps across large areas of the west side of the valley and its peaks. Once you reach the forest road, there is another 450 meters to climb up to Sclupetoir. Whilst the small group of mountain huts at 1,906 m above sea level marks the route’s highest point, this is also where the next high-level path begins, slightly undulating all the way to San Romerio.

At the famous church it is time for an extensive rest stop. Not just to admire the view of the Poschiavo Valley and the Bernina range: The small restaurant here offers all sorts of homemade food to give you a boost – including homemade Grappa brandy. Feel free to have one of those, as the downhill route to Garbela mostly follows an easily navigable Alpine road.

Further down, the grand finale starts on a well flowing single trail ending almost on the shores of Lago di Poschiavo. You return to Poschiavo along the western shoreline via Le Prese. Once there, a stop at one of the restaurants on the picturesque piazza is a mandatory part of any mountain bike tour in the Val Poschiavo.
