We start our tour in the small town Thusis. This tour is a long one and requires a full day, since it covers nearly all alpine passes in Grison county, the county of thousand canyons and lakes. It also covers several passes in the border region between Switzerland and Italy. Nevertheless, the tour can be made without rush or hurry and there is enough time left for photo stops and tax free shopping in Livigno.
