By Car:
  • From Northern Switzerland, take the freeway to Bern, then to Spiez. Follow the directions to the Lotschberg tunnel. There is car transport (***link)(***new tunnel) by train through the tunnel every 1/2 hour for a reasonable price. After exiting the tunnel, follow the signs to Brig.

  • From Brig follow signs East toward Andermatt/Furka Pass. After arriving in the town of Morel, leave the car in the parking lot and take the cable-car to Greich. Alternatively, you can take a one-lane road to the left in Morel toward Betten-Goppisberg-Greich where there is a small parking lot outside the village.

  • From Lucerne/Luzern, drive over the Brunig Pass South of Lucerne to Interlaken. Then follow the signs to the Lotschberg tunnel. From there, see "from Brig" above. Alternatively, from Lucerne, you can go over the Gotthard Pass to Andermatt, load your car on the car transport train in Realp through the Furka tunnel. Then drive down the Rhone valley toward Brig (West). When you arrive at Morel, see "From Brig" above.

  • From Western Switzerland/Geneva, take the freeway toward the Rhone Valley/Sion/Brig. After reaching Brig, see "from Brig" above.

  • From Southern Switzerland and Italy, it's probably easiest to use the car transport by train through the Simplon tunnel to Brig. Alternatively, go over the Simplon pass to Brig, then follow directions above.
