Switzerland-
Furka Pass hotels
The Furka Pass was used as a location in the James Bond film Goldfinger. Located in central Switzerland, this amazing road takes you within a few hundred meters of the 7 km long Rhone Glacier, source of the Rhone river. You can even park the car and then walk up to and inside the glacier itself!

The drive starts in Gletsch with a couple of tight switchbacks, but then cuts a long sweeping path along the rock-face of the valley for around 5 to 6km. The road surface is fantastic, so it's a road that you really enjoy.
