 Nufenen Pass: One way to reach the Northern part of Ticino (Airolo) from the Canton of Valais is crossing the Nufenen Pass, Switzerland’s highest mountain pass, with an altitude of 2,478 meters. 

Gotthard Pass: it is not only one of the most important alpine passes but is also the most important North-South connection through the Alps. Do not miss out on the incredible experience of riding on the famous Tremola road. The road climbs narrow turns, especially on the Southern-facing side, blessing you with a picture-postcard view over the surrounding Alps. At the top of the Pass you will find the Gotthard Pass (2091 m), which will make for a very enjoyable stop, not far from the artificial lake and the Lucendro Dam.
