Swiss Mountain Seven-Pass-Tour: Brünig – Grimsel – Furka – Gotthard – Nufenen – Grimsel – Susten

After the Swiss Mountain Three-Pass-Tour: Susten – Grimsel – Furka, this long weekend  was perfect for an extended mountain pass ride: Brünig – GrimselFurkaGotthardNufenen – GrimselSusten. Starting from the Lucerne side, the Grimsel was on the tour from both sides.

Of course I used my GPS data logger (see “Combining GPS Data Logger with Google Earth“).Seven Pass Tour
