Most Fun Day!! On our recent European vacation and after a few extravagances along the way, we realized once again that most often the least expensive things to do bring the most joy. In this case the cost of a car rental. This ride was FUN! Caught lots of videos and photos showing US getting passed on crazy, windy stretches... More

We drove over the Furka Pass on our road trip from Italy to England via Switzerland and France. Not to be missed. The views are fabulous and the civil engineering of the roads is just amazing. Plenty of motor cyclists, some of whom seemed to have death wishes but I'm sure they were just skilled riders. Many places to pull... More

In our month in Switzerland, we drive through many Swiss mountain passes - some of the most amazingly beautiful scenery I have ever seen. The Furka Pass is the most stunning of them all, in my view .... with the views into the Rhone Valley just over the pass. You have the added bonus of the very-accessible Rhone Glacier also... More

We travelled this road 4 days ago. I've been to many places but I've never been on a road trip like we did. The road is steep, windy and so scenic photos just don't/can't do it justice. A stop at the glacier to visit the ice grotto was fantastic too!

We were on our way from Grindlewald to Zurich and just stumbled upon this pass name at the very last. This would have delayed our reaching time to Zurich by 4 hours, but we decided to go for it and were we surprised???This is one of the most stunning drives that i have ever done. The curvy roads with the... More

First of all, the drive was terrifying! We factored camping on the mountain into our itinerary but unfortunately it was so foggy we could hardly see three meters in front of us. But we made it! We camped on the mountain and woke up to the most beautiful view and the sound of cow bells was comical and cute. Don't... More

This high mountain road is superb! We did Furka Pass after driving through Grimsel Pass on a sunny Saturday. We were lucky at that time to encounter a beautiful clear blue sky and not many vehicles on the road. Luxury cars and horse carriage passed by, we snapped hundreds of pictures of the incredible alpine scenery. Countless wows. A memorable... More
