STELVIO PASS HOTEL & DRIVE
PASS TOUR & ALPS
In 2008 Jeremy Clarkson, presenters of the popular TV program TopGear praised the Stelvio Pass as:
“the greatest driving road in the world”.
Now you can race a supercar in the Swiss Alps and over the alpine range of the Stelvio Pass in Italy. Stay at the best hotel at the foot of the Stelvio Pass to tackle the legendary pass early morning before the crowds arrive.
Choose the fast track option: to kick the Stelvio off your bucket-list with only two driving days — or go all in: and include two nights near the famous mountain resort of St. Moritz in the Swiss Engadine valley to get to drive even more stunning Swiss Alpine Passes.

JUNE — OCTOBER
FROM ZURICH | SWITZERLAND
DAY 2 — TOUR 1 — 2 SWISS PASSES ROUTE
Drive what is arguably Switzerland's most scenic highway into the Swiss Engadine region. Later take the Julier Pass on 2284 meters above sea level towards the mountain resort of Saint Moritz before you reach Bormio in Italy where you're based for the night on foot of the Stelvio Pass.
DAY 3 — TOUR 2 — STELVIO PASS + 2 PASSES ROUTE
Check out from your hotel in the Alps relatively early to get the best driving experience over the 48 switchbacks the Stelvio Pass has to offer. Once completed you will loop back into Switzerland to conquer another two spectacular high alpine passes on your way back to Zurich.
DAY 1 — ARRIVAL TO ZURICH
— DAY 2 —
LAKES & RHINE GORGE VALLEY
TO ST. MORITZ
Within the first fifteen minutes from your hotel in Zurich you reach the countryside and the Albis mountain plateau. Follow the fast sweeping roads of the Swiss Lake Route into the Central Swiss Alps. Enjoy wonderful panoramas of staggering mountains and lakes driving the infinite fast sweeping mountain roads.
Close to the Gotthard mountain massif you will then drive the first alpine pass of the day — the Oberalp Pass rising to more than 2000 metres. Later pick up the Swiss Grand Canyon Drive — a long and fascinating gorge road carved into the rock by the river Rhine.
The famous Julier Pass on 2284 meters above sea level will be your gateway into the Swiss Engadine Valley. Stay overnight near the famous luxury mountain retreat of St. Moritz. Take a stroll in the town before dinner. But don't forget to set your alarm for the next morning. Early birds will be rewarded on the Stelvio Pass.
— DAY 3 OPTIONAL DRIVE —
DRIVE THE STELVIO PASS
OR TRI-COUNTRY DRIVE
Stay a second night in the Engadine Valley and drive three spectacular alpine passes with spotlight on the Stelvio Pass, stunning 2,757 m (9,045 ft) above sea level.
To experience this masterpiece of engineering in peace we recommend to leave your hotel relatively early. Mornings are the best time to tackle the 48 numbered hairpins along 47 kilometres (29 Miles) of zick zack route.
Should you not be a morning person or decided not to drive the slightly challenging Stelvio Pass we have another equally stunning scenic route planned out for you:
The Tri-country circuit into Tyrol (Austria) – Graubünden (Switzerland) – South Tyrol (Italy) with some immaculately preserved medieval villages, castles and a sunken bell tower.
— DAY 4 —
FROM THE ENGADINE
BACK TO ZURICH
Time to leave the Engadine valley via the Fluela Pass. The mountain road was awarded to be number 4 of the 25 top driving roads in the world. You will be surprised!
According to the jury: curves, acceleration, driving and breaking are making the four stages of a good driving experience. We can only agree and under this premise take you deeper into the Swiss Alps.
After lunch you will get to drive what is by far Switzerland's most scenic stretch of highway towards Zurich with a loop to visit the stunning Einsiedeln Abbey. Before you reach your hotel you will have driven two short but sweet lower mountain passes of the region.
Back at your hotel the car pick up has been arranged and you can make plans for your evening.
