1. Furka Pass
Another James Bond location, the Swiss Alps’ Furka Pass was used for a scene in Goldfinger. But you’ll probably look anything but Bond-style glamorous when tackling it: steep slopes, hairpin bends, switchbacks and sharp, blind curves make this a white-knuckle ride to all but the most experienced (or crazy) drivers. At least the road’s wide and perfectly surfaced – this is Switzerland, after all.
 Connecting tiny village Realp at the foot of the mountain with Gletsch in the upper Rhone valley, you’ll see awesome views of the Rhone Glacier to the west as you climb… if you dare take your eyes off the road.

About admin

I would like to think of myself as a full time traveler. I have been retired since 2006 and in that time have traveled every winter for four to seven months. The months that I am "home", are often also spent on the road, hiking or kayaking. I hope to present a website that describes my travel along with my hiking and sea kayaking experiences.
