Nufenen Pass

2478 m a.s.l. / Airolo - Ulrichen

The pass road through the tranquil Bedretto valley in Upper Valais was brought into service only in 1969. The well-developed Nufenen pass is the second highest in Switzerland after the Umbrail pass. Once you reach the top, you can admire an unforgettable panoramic view over the snow-capped mountains.
And it’s not just hikers and mountain bikers who prize the varied natural landscape of the Bedretto valley – the Alpine ibexes feel very much at home here too. Keep your eyes open and you might even catch a glimpse of one from the road.
