Grimsel Pass, European Road Trip

Grimsel Pass

Grimsel Pass is dubbed one of the world’s most insane roads. It is tightly hairpinned and bumped, an exquisite winding mountain drive with sharp and blind curves and hairpin switchbacks.  With Grimsel and Furka both starting from the same place you get great views of each road from the other.

Stelvio Pass

Of course much was made of the Stelvio Pass after Top Gear voted this the best driving road in the world in 2008. A pretty bold claim, and actually in our opinion it’s not the best pass in the Alps to “drive” however, that said, it is a truly stunning road to view, and the wall of 48 switchback turns running up its north face really are a sight to behold, and worth the drive for that part alone.

St Gotthard Pass

Experience the stunning Alpine views on the St Gotthard Pass. At over 2000m, it traverses the Alps connecting northern & southern Switzerland.

Gorges du Verdon

The Verdon Gorge, in south-eastern France, is a river canyon often considered to be one of Europe's most beautiful. It is about 25 kilometres long and up to 700 metres deep.

Not many cities have managed to retain their historic features quite as successfully as Bern, the capital of Switzerland. The Old Town, built in a loop of the river Aare, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy strolling through this architectural gem in the shelter of the medieval arcades and past a host of historic treasures.

Furka Pass

Follow in the tyre tracks of James Bond's DB5 in Goldfinger. This stunning pass in the Swiss Alps offers tight hairpins, long sweeping curves with great visibility and an immaculate road surface.

Lake Garda Region

Lake Garda, in northern Italy, is known for its crystal clear water. At the south end, the town of Sirmione is dominated by the Rocca Scaligera, a fortress with harbor views.

Brunig pass

The Brünig Pass, at an altitude of 1,008 m, connects the Bernese Oberland and central Switzerland, linking Meiringen in the canton of Bern and Lungern in the canton of Obwalden.
