Fijne korte klim in het Sella rondje klok mee. Vanaf de Sella afdaling sla je rechtsaf en is de eerste kilometer klimmen in het bos. Daarna komen de mooie vergezichten en zie vrij snel de Gardena pas liggen. Boven is een restaurant.

Nice climb. Not too steep and not very long but fantastic scenery.
On a weekday at the end of May, the traffic wasn't too bad.
Definitely recommended. A climb to enjoy.

Leuke klim. Niet al te steil en niet erg lang maar wel een fantastisch mooie omgeving.
Op een weekdag eind mei viel de verkeersdrukte heel goed mee.
Zeker een aanrader. Een klim om van te genieten.

The Passo Gardena are actually two short climbs of two kilometres. Not too difficult. The scenery is really beautiful. On the pass is a restaurant to eat or drink something.

De Passo Gardena zijn eigenlijk twee korte klimmetjes van twee kilometer. Niet al te moeilijk. De omgeving is echt wonderschoon. Op de pas is een restaurantje om wat te eten of drinken.

Breathtaking scenery and a fairly easy climb split into two sections. A must do.

I did this as the last climb of a clockwise Sella Ronda. Make sure you pause to enjoy the magnificent views. Also, go early and you’ll miss all the traffic.

Cycled up the Gardena pass on this side in the Sella Ronda (sense=Sella/Gardena/Campolongo/Pordoi) which for me started in Canazei.
Route in 3 parts. You start in Plan de Gralba with two kilometers of winding climbing to get to a plateau with almost flat straight road parallel to the imposing north side of the Sella group. A real relief to be able to shift up again. Last 2 km to the summit again go up via five short hairpin bends.
On the pass height with the necessary provisioning possibilities and on the way there is 360° pure nature.
During summer months in 't weekend busy tourist traffic.

Cycling up Passo Gardena is a real pleasure!

De Gardenapas langs deze zijde op gefietst in de Sella Ronda (wijzerszin=Sella/Gardena/Campolongo/Pordoi) die voor mij startte in Canazei.
Route in 3 delen. Je begint in Plan de Gralba met twee kilometers bochtig klimmen om op een plateau uit te komen met nagenoeg vlakke rechte weg evenwijdig aan de imposante noordkant van de Sellagroep. Een echte verademing om terug eens groter te schakelen. Laatste 2 kilometer tot de top gaan dan weer in stijgende lijn via vijf kort op elkaar volgende haarspeldbochten.
Op de pashoogte met de nodige bevoorradingsmogelijkheden en onderweg is er 360° puur natuurpracht.
Tijdens zomermaanden in 't weekend druk toeristisch verkeer.

Passo Gardena opfietsen is echt al trappend genieten!
