Starting out from Zurich, the drive quickly becomes picturesque surrounded by jutting mountains & passing the banks of the Lake Zugersee & unusually shaped Lucerne – stop at the alte Achsenstrasse observation deck to take in the incredible views.
You next drive through the Susten Pass, the curved smooth roads up the mountains offers a truly enjoyable (& a little adrenaline inducing) drive amongst unrivalled scenery.
The scenery doesn't falter coming to the Grimsel Pass, driving along the Räterichsbodensee Lake, Grimselee Lake, & Totensee Lake curving through the landscape (with bays), & ending in a series of hairpin style bends.
Quickly turning into the Furka Pass with two sections of tight bends around the mountains- perfect for those driving enthusiasts to really enjoy the ride.
Onwards onto the St. Gotthard Pass, the route drives via a series of pretty lakes & a long stretch of hairpin turns until reaching Airolo.
The remainder of the drive offers small bends & a smooth drive until you reach Lugano, the finish point of the route & home to the beautiful Lago di Lugano.
