Tips

  • Wiro L.

    At 2,478 m, the Nufenen Pass is the highest Alpine crossing in Switzerland and forms the border between Valais and Ticino. From the east you can reach the top of the pass via the Val Bedretto along the Ticino and through numerous serpentines to Ulrichen. The pass is surrounded by Piz Nero (2904 m) in the north and the Italian border in the south.
    The Nufenen Pass is one of the youngest alpine crossings ever, because it was only built 30 years ago. Due to its high average gradient, its countless serpentines and its susceptibility to wind (in both directions), the Nufenen is one of the toughest.
