Furka pass is simply WOW!! We planned to visit Rhone Glacier but it was so raining that we cancel this plan. Hopefully next time, because we will come again as it is on our „Bucket list“. It was by far the most beautiful drive ever....More

It is quite high around 2500 meters and the roads are quite narrow. Going up is ok but coming down is quite scary. Many drivers go very fast but if you are afraid of heights it can be frightening because you are so high. Getting...More

Didn’t know we need special Permit to get on the route of Zermatt. Had to return, need to get more German language knowledge. The highest point is 1604meter above the sea. View from there is stamped as Swiss view. I love it. Recommend.
