Furka Pass

Valais, Switzerland

Slip on your driving gloves -- but resist the urge to make like James Bond -- when driving the crazy, serpentine roads that run through Switzerland’s Furka Pass. You’ll have plenty to see along the way. Park your car at the nearby Swiss resort town of Wengen, then take a scenic train ride to the top of the vertigo-inducing Jungfraujoch to touch the sky at 11,000-plus feet.
