The legendary Alpine passes of the Stelvio National Park are part of our historic and natural heritage. For this very reason, as well as the beauty of their roads, they offer a spectacular setting for anyone who wants to take on one of their challenging climbs. To guarantee the best possible conditions for this experience, ERSAF, the management of the Stelvio National Park, together with other local organisations, has organised the ‘Enjoy Stelvio – VALTELLINA’ project.
