The Oberalp Pass is the first hurdle on the Goldtour. With an average gradient of 5.5 percent, the incline here is on the more pleasant side. The Oberalp Pass lies at 2,044 meters above sea level and then leads on a 21-kilometer descent to the first aid station in Disentis.

Now follows the slightly easier climb to the Lukmanier Pass (1,915 m above sea level). The first half of the gold tour will soon be over. The average gradient is 4.3 percent and 909 meters of altitude are spread over 21 kilometers. This is followed by the long descent to Biasca, before the Nufenen Pass has to be tackled.

Before you tackle the ascent to the Nufenen Pass, you should have stocked up on energy at our refreshment station in Airolo. For most people this is the toughest climb of the Goldtour. On a 23-kilometre road, you climb 1,339 meters in altitude before you can enjoy the view of Valais at 2,478 metres above sea level. This climb has an average gradient of 5.8% – not for the faint-hearted! Once you reach the top, don’t forget to take a selfie on the pass. This is followed by a fast descent to Ulrichen!

In Ulrichen you start pedaling up to the last pass of the Goldtour. From Oberwald you overcome 1060 meters of altitude before you reach the Furka Pass at 2,429 meters above sea level. By the way, the current road was completed in 1866. Once you reach the top, a technical descent into the valley follows before the finish line awaits you in Andermatt.
