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.

Oberalp Pass: the Oberalp Pass connects the cantons of Uri and Graubünden and is also known for the shuttle trains that operate throughout the winter season between Andermatt and Sedrun.

The San Bernardino Pass: the second most important connection route between the North of the Alps and the Canton of Ticino. The San Bernardino Pass, 17-kilometers long, connects the Mesolcina (Italian Graubünden) with the Rhine Valley.  The most populated centers along this route are Chur and Bellinzona, capital towns of Graubünden and Ticino. The San Bernardino Pass is a valid alternative to the Gotthard Pass, especially in the holiday season, as both connect the North to the Canton of Ticino.
