Pordoi Pass

Pordoi pass is another iconic pass of the Dolomites in Italy. This is a high altitude pass at a peak elevation of 2,239 m and is located between Arabba and Canazei. The completely sealed road is wide compared to the other passes in the Dolomites and is in good condition. There is ample room for safely passing oncoming vehicles. There is moderate traffic on this pass as it is a popular tourist destination, so expect a lot of tourist buses and caravans. The road is very enjoyable to drive as there are many hairpin turns and sweeping bends. The scenery surrounding the pass is spectacular with great views of the Dolomites mountains. There is a great vantage point at the top of the pass which has the best views of the scenery. In my opinion this is the best pass in the Dolomites. This is a pass definitely worth driving and is not to be missed.
