Drive from Orta Italy to Lauterbrunnen

Jump to last reply

Hi! Does anyone have any advice on the best way to drive from lake Orta in Italy to Lauterbrunnen, Switzerland? I love maps and have been studying ViaMichelen, but I know that does not tell the whole story. For instance, I recently read that the Gotthard pass can have huge backups at any time.

We are going on a Tuesday mid morning in mid August.

I know we'll see some amazing scenery once in Lauterbrunnen area, but it would be great to know about the most dramatic route, along with any caveats/hints/chance of worst traffic, etc.

If we go via Brig, then it looks like we'll be near but not going over the furka pass. I read the Furka pass an amazing sight. Would it be worth detouring a little up to the furka pass, or will it be sort of like what we are seeing on the way anyway?

We're going on kind of a crazy road trip so I'm trying to plan/know as much as I can before we go, with the idea that things may not always go as planned :-) My husband really wanted to drive through the alps so here we are! Thank you
