Gotthardpass / Val Tremola 2,091m

Scenically the Alps are doubtless most beautiful in Switzerland! However, this passroad is only horrible! Famous southern ramp from Airolo through Val Tremola leads on cobblestones to the summit. There you come across with hundres of cars, motorbikes and coaches with annoying all-incl-tourists. In addition very noisy music from loudspeakers prevent from experiencing nature. On northern ramp you have to share the road with much motor traffic. If you additionally experience temperatures of up to 38 degrees Celsius it becomes very uncomfortable... The only positive: On northern side you can take the railway through the tunnel from Göschenen back to Airolo.

Start: Airolo 1,270m
Altitude difference: 805m
Distance to summit: 15km
