This travel guide to the Furka Pass will have you packing tonight


The Furka Pass in Switzerland used to be a local secret, but after James Bond and Top Gear let the cat out of the bag, it has become the road that keeps enthusiasts up at night. Top Gear's Rory Reid tells us all about this amazing mountain pass and even provides information to help plan your own pilgrimage.

Reid brought an Aston Martin as a homage to "Goldfinger" and calls it the perfect grand tourer for the twisty road, but something a little bit more nimble than a GT car might be a better tool for the endless switchbacks. Whatever you bring on this amazing drive, don't look down, and watch out for cows.
