Located in one of the snowiest regions in Switzerland, the Furkapass reaches 2,431 meters. As James Bond in Goldfinger, drive through the amazing turns on one Europe’s most spectacular drives.

On this scenic road trip you are presented views of the majestic Alps in all their glory. The first stretch encompasses a stop at the impressive Rhone glacier, which is the origin of the Rhone River. A carved tunnel inside the retreating glacier allows for a sensational exploration of the glacier by foot. The road on the eastside of the mountain ridge explains why the Furkapass is not for the faint-hearted. With its exhilarating steep drops, narrow roads and endless panoramas on this road an excess of impressions await…

Please note: This road is generally open between May and October. If the weather is not with you when you are about to hit the road, we would recommend to wait for the sun to come back since it is a pretty dangerous road when wet or icy.
