I just want to share a part of my last tour thru Switzerland, which I absolutely enjoyed. 18-20 degrees at 2400 meter was perfect, down in the valleys it was upto 37 degrees. Nevertheless a very nice scenery with very good road quality (as almost always in Switzerland).
This is the kurviger route: https://kurv.gr/bLfm7
(2) Furkapass (direction west)
(3) Overnight stop at Obergersteln
(4) Furkapass (direction east)
(5) St. Gotthard (old road)
Starting point was the Oberalppass where you can find the highest lighthouse on our planet. I didnt find out why it is there, but too me it seems to be a nice showeffect.
The second pass was Furka, which provides a terrific view to the east and west. In the west you can see the Grimselpass and view a huge stoney waterfall. If you have time you can also stop and enjoy the “Eishöhle” (I didnt as I wanted to drive, drive and drive).
As you can see I planned my trip with an overnight stay at Obergesteln. This way I took the Furkapass in both directions (see wapyoints 2,3,4) , which is definitely worth it. If you dont stay overnight, you can take a U-turn a bit earlier at the junction from Furka to Grimselpass.
The next highlight is St. Gotthard pass, the old road. This road is mainly a cobblestone street, so recommended only on dry days. In case of rain you should take the newer St. Gotthard route, which is then easier to pass.
Next highlight is the Nufenenpass (5). As this is not a main road to pass for cars, there is by far less car traffic to be expected.
Until here it took me already close to 3 hours, also due to the amount of stops I took to enjoy the scenery.
The next highlight is the Grimselpass (7). Driving up from Obergesteln you have a beautiful view upto the Grimsel and Furkapass.
On top of the Grimselpass you can see mountains upto 4100 m and glaciers. Driving down you see a lot of reservoirs. Quite impressive.
The tour continues with next mountain pass above 2000m, the Sustenpass. Way up, you have curvy and small roads, so watch the oncoming traffic!
Last but not least I passed the Klausenpass. The only pass below 2000m!!! Though you have to drive roughly 20km thru the valley, which was a bit annoying due to 37 degrees. But it was worth it.
My tour didnt stop here, I continued for another 90 KM for my overnight stop. Depending on your driving style and speed the described tour can be achieved in one day with some more KMs. If you are a bit slower and/or like to take more stops for drinking and eating you should plan at least two days. Needles to say that there are a lot of opportunities to stop and have a break with beautiful views and lot of other motorcycle enthusiasts.
Finally, in case you consider to take this trip, try to avoid taking fuel in and around Andermatt. Its been the most expensive place and unfortunately a gas station on the kurviger map is not available anymore. It is now a hotel!
Enjoy it - as I did.
