The Flüela pass (B28) 2383m is one of high mountain pass in the Swiss Alps in the canton of Graubünden. The pass road connects Davos and Susch in the lower Engadin valley. Most of the heavy traffic migrated to the Vereina Tunnel when it opened in 1999 and the road is no longer open all year around. Of all the passes that connect these two valleys, the Flüela is our favourite. It has a bit of everything to please everybody.
 
Most of the route has a great surface and is fairly wide for an alpine pass. Most of the corners are well formed and the scenery is spectacular. Starting on in Sus, and riding west, the road begins with a few well formed hairpins and on a forest lined road. This opens up nicely as you make your accent to the summit. Given the summit elevation, snow can be seen well into the summer, so beware if conditions are overcast or changeable.
 
In our opinion you can’t really do this road without a stop at the summit. You will see a wild assortment of vehicles up in here, from high handlebar choppers to the latest Ferrari. The route down is a pretty wide open affair, with great visibility and passing opportunities. Once you hit tree line you lose a bit of the open feeling, but it just flows. If anything, the last push into Davos is just a bit too long and strait. The featured video is the accent of the eastern ramp. You can see the decent of the western ramp here youtu.be/1N-v-4Zbzmk" target="_blank">
 
We rate the Flüela and easy route to ride.
