A drive not to be passed up!
Sep 2021
Put this on your list of things to do at least once! A drive you will never forget with all the twists and turns. Stop to see the point where Sean Connery and Goldfinger were filmed. The views are breathtaking! When you return you can take one of the car trains and go through the mountain. This was one of the highlights of our recent car trip in the Alps.

Funny road to the top. Lots of twists and turns. Wonderful view of glaciers and the Alps. Not the difficult to drive on a motorcycle

Magnificent scenic drive
Aug 2019
Furka Pass, with an elevation of 2,429 metres, is a high mountain pass in the Swiss Alps known for its winding hair pin bends and scenic views. Be prepared to capture the sites like the Rhone glacier, the Schöllenen Gorge, numerous valleys and small Swiss villages.

It’s legendary mountain pass that was made famous from James Bond movie “Goldfinger”. It’s scenic, twisting hair pin turns.

Furka Pass
Oct 2019
Back in the USA, I was very excited to drive the furka pass. We were going from Lauterbrunnen to Lugano, and I was a passenger across the Grimsel pass, then took over at Furka.
Grimsel was beautiful, Furka? not sure because I had to keep my eyes on the road.
The drive itself was fun, but you have to pay attention to oncoming cars, so you both can fit on the narrow road, and when there is no traffic around, still pay attention to the edge of the cliff. All that was not a problem, I just missed out on some of the scenery which was spectacular.
There are a couple of stops for views and eats along the way.
check that it is open before going across.

The roads are even better than you imagine
Sep 2019
We took a motoring tour of the Swiss passes. Furka is one of the most famous and did not disappoint. The road was a joy to drive. We recommend a photo at the red Grand Tour view point. We also recommend that you avoid weekends when it can be very busy

Disappearing glacier at the top of the pass!
Jul 2019 • Couples
We have been through this pass several times and always stop near the top where there is a small tourist store where you can buy tickets to go inside the glacier. There is also a small café.
