The Julier Pass, Julierpass, Passo del Giulia is a 2284m mountain pass in Switzerland, in the Albula Range of the Alps. It connects the Engadin valley with the rest of Graubünden. At its summit, the pass crosses the watershed / drainage divide between the basins of the Rivers Rhine and Danube. The Julier Pass lies between Piz Lagrev and Piz Julier.

The nice wide road near the bottom of the south side at Silvaplana gets narrower nearer the top leading to a wide glacial valley. The northern side is good, especially since being mostly resurfaced over the last 10 year.

Be warned, this route can carry tons of traffic, as it is the widest and most gentle pass over to the Engadin valley. If you catch it at the right time, it can be a great ride.

We rate this an easy route

Nice road if you can catch without HGVs and motorhomes.
