SIX LAKES ROUTE
& SUSTEN PASS
Your carefully selected scenic route will take you past wide green meadows and rollin hills towards Lake Lucerne with spectacular roads carved into the mountains. Near Weggis enjoy one of the most iconic Swiss lake views before you reach the highlight of this day in the Swiss Alps:
The Susten Pass on foot of the Gotthard Mountain is with 26 bridges and tunnels hewn into the rock massive our absolute favourite Swiss Alpine Pass. Also Porsche seems to think that and shot the promotion of the 2016 model 911 R up here.
Towards the end of the pass stop the Aare River Gorge and take a walk between impressive rock formations before heading along the shores of Lake Brienzersee to your beautiful hotel.

The beautiful Grimsel Pass zigzags gently trough towering granite, tunnels, past hazy blue and water reservoirs before almost seamlessly connect to the legendary Furka Pass. Enjoy your personal James Bond Moment up here and get the same view as Sean Connery in the 1964 Goldfinger movie after chasing over the alpine pass in his Aston Martin DB5.
Up here visit also the easily accessed 100-metre long blue ice tunnel and ice chamber that has been cut new into the Rhone glacier every spring since around 1870.
