The Grimsel Pass (German: Grimselpass; French: Col du Grimsel) is a mountain pass in Switzerland, crossing the Bernese Alps at an elevation of 2,165 metres (7,103 ft).
The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. The road leads along many sparkling reservoir lakes with loads of great views to enjoy. This Swiss high mountain pass links the Hasli Valley in the Bernese Oberland with the Goms district in the Valais.
Approaching from the North, the pass climbs up through lush forests, with wide smooth sweeping roads. The final ascent to the top is one of the best, with some great switchbacks, and excellent views ahead throughout, there are very few blind bends or unsighted crests. A great biking road. The run back down from the top is much more narrow, the road not quite so smooth, however still fun, but you do have to concentrate all the way down to the valley floor, as on-coming traffic can be difficult to negotiate along some stretches, and there are a number of blind bends.
On the Valaisian side you travel on a well constructed road with many long bends down to Gletsch. Here you get great panoramic views of the Rhone Glacier and the Furka Pass road. Gletsch is also the starting point of the Furka Steam Railway.
