This stage starts in the Engadine village of Sent. The highlight of the tour is the impressive Uina Gorge with its spectacular rock path. But beware, for safety reasons you have to descend briefly on this short section through the rocks and push the bike.

On the Schlinig Pass you then cross the Italian border and are rewarded with a long descent through the Schlinig Valley.

Author’s recommendation

The Val d'Uina is a spectacular rocky gorge in the Lower Engadine and served, among other things, as a filming location for the Schellen Ursli film
