3 Night Swiss Alps Alpine Tour 

Our Six Passes Alpine Tour takes you on a 2 day driving tour featuring the greatest mountain passes anywhere in the Swiss Alps

This 3 night trip starts in Zurich, and includes two full days of driving on the best mountain roads in Switzerland. The first tour takes you into the Alps, first via the small Mount Alpis, then via the scenic shores of Lake Luzern and into the Alps.  You then cross the spectacular Susten + Grimsel + 007 Furka, spending an evening in the Alpine resort of Andermatt. Tour 2 takes you back to Zurich via the Gothard + Nufenen + Grimsel.  Quite simply there is nowhere else in Europe, if indeed the world that can offer 5 unique Cat 1 (2000M+) alpine passes in such a concentrated region. 

In short, this trip is an alpine pass paradise.  The only dilemma? Which car to take with you?

NOTE - the high altitude nature of this tour means there is quite a narrow season, from mid June till mid October each year.
