This was our first time to the Furka pass and to the Rhone glacier. The pass has very narrow roads but what a beautiful drive. Visiting the glacier and being able to walk through the chiseled out portion was really awesome. At one time you could see this glacier was quite large. So sad to see it melting away. The hike is quite easy. There is a small fee to pay to get in but well worth it. Small gift shop and drinks possible, hotel right across the road.

Driving up the pass to the glacier is a great experience, you will see spectaculair views of the mountains. When you left e valley on a summer day, you will be surprised by how much cooler it is around the glacier. There's a nice shop and restaurant at the glacier from where you als have. Great view on the swiss mountains. If you drive further up and through the mountains, you will enjoy a spectaculair drive.

It's amazing to walk through the ice tunnel especially when it is so hot outside. It's like steppeing into something unreal, like a dream. They cut the tunnel in an interesting design and put up lights which make it appear so nice. It is definitely worth a visit. If you have the time you can also walk onto the glacier. Nice area to visit.
