Passo Spluga or Splugen Pass is one of the major climbs of the Alps and connects the Italian village of Chiavenna with Splugen in Switzerland. Closed from November to May, the 32 km long climb to the top of Passo Spluga is simply put, epic! This climb is not very well known; the road is narrow; but with far less traffic than the more famous Passo Stelvio. About an hour's drive from Como and you've reach on of the most unique rides in the region.

Como is pretty beautiful year round, but the ideal cycling season here is really from mid March to the end of October.
Malpensa is the closest airport to Como. You will have to take a bus or a train to central Milan and from there a train to Como OR we can provide transportation for you (and your bike box) with our van. See our Airport Transfers for more.
Guided Tour vs. Riding on Your Own
Our crew has lived in Como for decades and knows the area intimately. We aim to give you an incredible escape, the best ride, at the best time of day, in the least amount of traffic and offer you the often missed hidden gems and scenery only riding with a local could provide - and without the hassle of stopping to consult a map, gps, or be otherwise sidetracked by technology.
Guided Tour Sizes
Most often you'll be the only rider, but tour sizes can vary. We try to limit the group to maximum 6 riders. Regardless of numbers, there's rarely an unshared, well deserved bottle of wine at the end of a day's ride.
Riding Level | Experience
Don't worry. There are many levels of difficulty and ease. Flat riding along Lake Como or Lugano's shores can be both brisk as well as almost therapeutic.
We have a fleet of about 100+ quality road bikes. You can view our fleet on the website under bike rentals. We strongly recommend an advance reservation since bike hire in Summer is very popular and we are the only ones in the area to rent road bikes. Feel free to inquire about deliver of your rented bike to your Como hotel (For Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio). We'll supply a repair kit and a floor pump for rentals of more than one (1) day.
