Transalp Maloja – From St. Anton to Lake Como 6 stages – 370 km – 8250 m elevation gain – Level 4

Swiss glaciers and the Engadine are an undisputed Alpine highlight. This is where Alpine tourism started its successful career 200 years ago. Even today, the majestic mountains around St. Moritz have today lost none of their fascination - on the contrary! Mountain biking lets you experience nature more intensively than ever before. The route from St. Anton to Lake Como is chock full of mountain bike classics. Assuming you have the stamina to do so, you should have experienced this at least once in your life.

My tip for Transalp Maloja


„There are only a few routes through the Alps which a mountain biker must have experienced. The Transalp Maloja definitely belongs in this category. In the Alps, nothing surpasses the legendary Pass Costainas trail, the loneliness of the Val Mora and the elemental force of the Swiss glaciers. However, good preparation and good equipment are a requirement for this route. You should be sure to mount fat tires, because the paths are technically demanding.“
Ben Ewald, ALPS bike guide for the Transalp Maloja and Transalp Riva.
