The road is very pleasant and it takes place in a very beautiful and quiet valley.
Traffic is modest in comparison to other mountain passes because it is a very narrow and steep road, but that’s the perfect place to test your car! Here, your driving pleasure will reach the maximum!

The classic route has two steps that your car or motorcycle has to overcome because between Passo delle Erbe and Aferer Pass there is the deep groove of the Luson Valley, where you must descend before going up to the second pass. The Luson valley has become feasible only recently through the asphalting of the steep forest road.

The feeling of freedom that a trip to Passo delle Erbe is unique – imagine yourself being immersed in the Dolomites.
Driving through mountain passes that succeed and on serpentine mountain roads, you will feel captivated by the movement of the stunning surrounding landscape.

Other driving destinations in the area are Furkelpass, Passo Campolongo, Passo Gardena, Passo Sella and Passo Falzarego, the main Dolomite passes, which will make you feel the adrenaline at its maximum, surrounded by giant mountains and a breathtaking panorama.
