Absolutely stunning backdrop, along this mountain pass. Beautiful. Nothing more to say.

It’s difficult to determine whether the Bivio stellplatz is actually a stellplatz or indeed a campsite. Maybe it is something in between!
We had travelled from St Moritz and over the Julier Pass (stunning). As we descended into Bivio, the stellplatz was on our right. We “pitched” carefully, ensuring we were facing the best direction to get out in the morning with ease, should any more snow come our way. Within moments, the custodian appeared! He didn’t speak English, but spoke good Italian, so we were able to communicate. Why not watch our Julier Pass video – click here.
Value for money at the Bivio stellplatz
The tariff is fifteen Swiss Francs per night. Electric hook up is available at seven Swiss Francs. As the electric is unmetered, and noting the outside temperatures already indicating at minus five degrees C, it’s a fair price to pay to keep warm. Speaking of electrical hook ups, you will need a Swiss hook up adaptor, rather than the blue CEE type that you may be familiar with. I had a sort of cobbled together adaptor with me, a home-made affair, but the friendly warden appeared moments later with a suitable connector.
Amazingly, despite the sub-zero temperatures, fresh flowing water was available, although collection might need to be by jerrican or similar. That said, we were prepared with a full fresh tank on board and also two jerricans full of fresh water in case on the non ability to obtain fresh supplies! A Motorhome Voyager is always prepared!
There is a chemical disposal point for use, and interestingly, this stellplatz allows caravans.
The ski lift is adjacent and there is also a restaurant. At the restaurant, there are toilets and showers. There are open around the clock. Worth mentioning, the shower area was toasty warm inside.
On the downside, Bivio stellplatz is adjacent to the main road. However, this is a mountain pass, not the M55, so not too much traffic.
Maybe a word of caution – check the weather forecast for Bivio and the Julier Pass before embarking on the journey. See here for weather in the area.
The Bivio stellplatz does have its own website – and note the low summer camping fees!
