The best way to cross Switzerland!

Route description

I was looking for a GA route to fly in the Alps and I found a route that is so beautiful that I think it deserves to be shared here on the community. This route brings you across the entire country of Switzerland as you fly from one end of the country to the other.
The route is St Gallen (LSZR) to Geneva (LSGG) but it can be flown in the other direction. You basically just follow a valley during the entire flight and that’s what makes this flight so fun because you are always surrounded by mountains on either side of you.

Now we’re really in the valley. Look at those mountains!


There is a mountain that crosses the valley so I had to fly over it.

Flying over Sion (LSGS)


After getting out of the valley, I flew over lake Leman towards Geneva.


Geneva Airport in sight!


Very buttery landing on runway 22 at Geneva!

@Jack_BC, People are free to mix it up, add their own info, text, etc. as long as they have the basic info listed in the category rules. If you mean the 10 photo limit, I misunderstood you. But you can just type “10 photo limit” instead of making it seem like the whole thing is wrong.


Great photos @Philippe_Gilbert, I should really fly this sometime!
