THE MOST SPECTACULAR MOUNTAIN PASS ENSEMBLE
SWISS "BIG3" ALPINE PASSES 🇨🇭
LONGEST SPAN OF INTERCONNECTED MOUNTAIN PASSES IN THE WORLD ❤️
The Furka – Grimsel – Susten Route is collectively referred as the "BIG3 ALPINE ROUTE" and form the most scenic driving route in the Swiss Alps. Together the three mountain roads lead through three Swiss cantons and form a hundred-twenty kilometre long loop. The ultra-scenic route can be driven comfortably in half a day.
The route opens up views of breathtakingly beautiful mountain landscapes, quaint villages and deep valleys. Especially when driven in a convertible you will experience endless breathtakingly beautiful alpine vistas. We recommend a performance car, like Porsche to handle the exhilarating steep and drops of the twisty mountain roads.
Be aware of some narrow road stretches en route. Especially the Furka Pass is narrow in some sections and climbs the mountainside in a dramatic way. Here and there only a line of concrete and wooden poles protect you from driving off the cliff.
But after driving the much wider Susten Pass and Grimsel Pass first you will feel confident enough to tackle the slightly more challenging Furka Pass. All of those mountain roads are very well maintained and in great condition. All together a save and comfortable driving route that tourist love.
For the best experience travel the route mid week and avoid weekends or bank holidays. The speed limit on the passes is 80 kph / 50 mph which is sufficient to enjoy driving the pass.
