The 1-hour stop by the Hotel Belvédère (PostBus stop Belvedere Furka) is sufficient to enjoy a bite to eat, and of course take a look at the ice-grotto carved out of the Rhone Glacier; sights such as this are few and far between!
And the Nufenen Pass mountain world is another spot where you won’t regret stopping to take in the scenery and a few pictures to take home with you – especially as at an altitude of 2478 meters, it’s Switzerland’s highest travelled Alpine crossing. (PostBus stop Nufenen Passhöhe). The Furka Pass opens up stunning views over the Gotthard massif and the Urserental valley, and from here, the passing the Rhone Glacier, you proceed on your way to charming canton Valais.
- A single CHF 15 Alpine Ticket is sufficient for the entire route
- Passengers who wish to travel only certain legs of the route require an Alpine Ticket only for the respective journey legs they wish to travel.
