The Alpine Passes Trail is part of the Switzerland Mobile Projekt and was opened in spring of 2008 as a national long distance trail.Trail nr. 6 strings together many of the most beautiful passes in the Alps. The result is a challenging but fascinating Alpine hiking tour with 34 stages from Chur to St. Gingolph.
The itinerary in Ticino goes from the Greina Plateau, along lake Ritòm and continuous into the Bedretto valley reaching the Corn Pass into the Valais. Clearly it’s not likely that all stages will be covered at one time – but it can be hiked in sections. One major advantage of hiking the passes is the opportunity to leave or join the route in any valley between two passes.
The itinerary can be booked online at the following web site:
