Arrow Alps Tour 2022 /// HGT'22 - 9 Days of Driving Bliss in The Alps

We all have our passions – for me it is driving towards the most beautiful roads in the world and if possible with friends and their Bimmers. So we've accomplished our first international tour that last 9 days and went amazing with all sort of adventures and experiences! A very special word to mjn77 that so kindly help us with all elaboration of the event. From giving us all sort of tips and advice to leading our drives in very difficult passes in considerable complicated weather conditions. In the end everything went beautifully to all of us and people and cars did amazingly well.

Therefore here's our tour in detail so that anyone can inspire themselves or to others to do or join us on future tours. This should make a great reference for anyone planning travel towards the Alps. Germany not only do we have great Autobahns but also some of the best gateways to the most beautiful roads in the world.

Enjoy,
Joao

Power of mountains with bimmers line-up




Coming down at Klausen Pass we got some rain and we stop for a quick shot

Day3 - 286km [Andermatt, Switzerland ->> Sufers, Switzerland]





Initially we planned to split our Day3 in 2 parts. Planning tours towards Alps are challenging and this time wasn't exception therefore we adjust accordinlg the roads and passes that were available to drive. Considering that Grimselpass was closed we start our day focus on SustenPass. We could not made it all missing the last corners to reach the top but it was a gorgeous ride up. But first things first. Breakfast was awesome!

Good morning!


Breakfast




Checkout and meet up mjn77 at parking place with his lovely E90 M3






Time to recap day plan!


mjn77 will lead today our convoy.


No matter what we want to make sure cars are at most of the times with full tank to avoid any surprises



Drive to SustenPass was spectacular. Weather was super favorable for a lovely run!




SustenPass top was closed but we could feel the potential of this pass. We'll be back!


From SustenPass we took the next pass. Furka here we come.

After this morning stunning passes we were hungry and with usual help from CruzM3 we found a very interesting and cute local restaurant.















Hot afternoon and off we go towards our third pass of the day. Still driving in Switzerland towards San Bernardino Pass.

But first things first...




Quick stop before running the pass


After a stunning drive towards the top of the pass we were thrilled with the unexpected scenery that we just found.
BMW CSL 3.0 in loco! I was in shock and my thoughts were only. Take pics take pics!






















I'll never ever forget this moment. It was like 'everything happen for a reason' and it was fated for us to live such a moment.
The day couldn't end better.

Day4 - 275km [Sufers, Switzerland ->> Bormio, Italy]





Another day ahead! More excitement towards a few more passes and this was going to be a tricky day for some of the cars.





Badge moved


Morning scene is 99 out 100 always fantastic!


Check


SplugenPass was great!


Top of SplugenPass













Ciao Italia!


We are One!


Coming down the road we decide to stop to fly our drones and appreciate the beauty of the land.











Moving forward and in the search for a lovely spot for a well deserved lunch.








Mayday Mayday!! Hairpins are coming


















After lunch ... Alexander_Sebastian ring alert! One of our B58's warns Low Oil level - time for some teamwork





Let's keep it up and move forward. JulierPass we are coming!






No time to rest and now it's AlbulaPass on the way!






Alex's B58 still complains on some mountain compliance and now a 'Emergency' warning came up! It's time for a OBD2 call.














CruzM3 also needs some attention. No reason for alarm but let's keep both Alex and Antho cars under radar.


After proper evaluation we're moving down toward the hotel and there's one more pass before we release our legs and give cars a well deserved rest.






Last pass of the day! Bernina Pass well known as Passo del Bernina

Day5 - 161km [Bormio, Italy ->> Imst, Austria]





For our fifth day we plan the shortest drive from the tour. We plan... Let's see if that still stands. We're fortunate to have StelvioPass open according the webcams and local sites info and therefore we look forward to a epic day and probably one of the most exciting ones from the tour. It always been a dream for me to come to Stelvio and today we're putting all energy to make it happen.

Improvising parking as our hotel was full and no availability for all cars indoors.


Ready to go and need for some more gas.










On the way to Stelvio




















And endless ... Heaven!














StelvioPass from bottom












The tour keeps going leaving behind a very hasty StelvioPass for some of us ....






Richard and his stunning E63 M6 have been doing a stunning drive!






Reservoir Dogs












Epic end of the day scenery before hitting Imst and our hotel.
