The Furka Pass links Andermatt in the Canton of Uri with Gletsch in the Canton of Valais. It is part of the popular Three-Pass-Ride over the Furka, Grimsel and Susten Pass. In summer, a ride with the nostalgic Furka steam engine from Realp to Gletsch is an unforgettable experience.
The village and its many hamlets was founded in 1290, but was first documented in 1305. Together with Täsch it belonged to the municipality of Naters until 1552, at which point it became part of the municipality of Visp. The name Randa probably comes from the word "Rand" meaning border. The extended Baroque church, built in 1717, is a real gem.
