Description 

The Furka pass provides a connection between central Switzerland on its east side and the Valais to the west. The road itself is paved, and is generally open to traffic from the early/mid summer until late autumn, depending on weather conditions. On the east side of the pass, there are numerous superb venues for mountaineering activities.

Getting There 

Drive to the Furka Pass, or in mid-summer can take an old steam engine train.
