We did it pulling a carrello-tenda with our car since we had been camping all through the Italian and Swiss Alps. I must confess ignorance but my husband had to have known what he was getting into! Our frequent stops to let the car motor cool off gave us plenty of time and opportunities for taking photos. It was quite... More

I got inspired by the picture of the pass given on Wikipedia page, about 4 years ago. Since then i have driven this pass sveral times. Best would be to come from the Grimsel Pass, just to enjoy most of it. We drove down to the place called Gletsch and then took left turn and drove to Velvedere Hotel. Stunning... More

I read about it as one of the best ten roads to drive. The place where one scene from "Goldfinger" was filmed. Well, this is really one of the best road that I had chance to drive on! What a great fun and all that in November. I must say that I was very lucky to have great weather. And... More

Wow! Re -live the James Bond 'Goldfinger' driving scene. Never mind the martini, simply mix amazing alpine views with a winding challenging road and you have one terrific driving experience that will leave you shaken and stirred!

So great to drive there, the views will stay with you for the rest of your life! My only advise : look first at the weather forecast if you want to enjoy the view and not drive in the clouds all the time..

I was only travelling through Switzerland but though I take a few hours bypass to see the two pass. It was one of my best idea this summer :) I do not have to say the road beautifull because just like the scenic roads in the world it obviously is. You can stop next to the road everywhere and see...

Some of the most spectacular views I have ever seen, particularly the views of the roads winding up and down the snow capped mountains

We rented a car for the day and drove the three passes: Furka Pass, Gimsel Pass, and Susten Pass. It took a little over 6 hours to complete the journey. We stopped frequently along the way to drink coffee, eat, and take pictures. The road near Furka Pass was the most challenging part of the journey. There was construction along... More
