Arrival to Amsteg
Amsteg – Andermatt
A stage for railroad fans: The route partly runs right next to the tracks of the now "old" Gotthard railroad line (long-distance trains rush through the world's longest railroad tunnel under the Gotthard Mountains). The towns of Göschenen and Andermatt play an important role in the history of Gotthard traffic. The legendary Schöllenen gorge lies between them.
Andermatt – Airolo
The route follows the paving of the venerable mule track to the pass of passes. Varied, colourful alpine flora. The striking ventilation system of the Gotthard car tunnel resembles a music pavilion. From the pass with its old refuge, the Hospiz, and Totenkappelle (Cemetery Chapel), the section leads to the world-famous Tremolastrasse, which climbs an impressive 340 metres around 24 bends. Once you reach Airolo, the obere Leventina valley awaits with further discoveries.
Airolo – Osco
Deep down in the valley, traffic roars along the motorway, while peace reigns up on the Strada alta trail. Magnificent views of the Leventina and Val Bedrettotal mountain chains. Bright chapels in villages and field. Osco was once an important trading post.
Osco – Anzonico
The mid-section of the Strada alta is thought to be the easiest and most magnificent: almost level, mostly on unsurfaced tracks, with the peaks above the Leventina as constant companions. Chapels and churches for reflection and art enjoyment.
Anzonico – Biasca
The most romantic but steepest section of the Strada alta trail. The old mule trail leads over rocky spurs and through tranquil chestnut forests to the unique open-air steps above Pollegio. A spurt to the finish at Biasca down in the Leventina Valley.
Departure or extension
The tours themselves follow well developed hiking trails, but the stages over the Gotthard require sure-footedness. Some longer sections require good basic fitness. You must be in good shape, especially for the sportive version.
