The Simplon Pass connects the Rhone Valley in the Swiss canton of Valais with the Val d’Ossola in the Italian province of Verbano-Cusio-Ossola and Lake Maggiore. The glaciated Fletschhorn towers above it on the south side, while the Spitzhorli (2,736 meters) is located to the northwest. There are two natural lakes at the pass (the Rotelsee and the Hopschusee), two more have been artificially created.

The top of the Simplon pass is a great starting point for simple circular hikes.
