Zermatt Switzerland - July 11th 2023
The Matterhorn is simply incredible; you have to see it with your own eyes. And 'see it' indeed you will, as well as Europe's second highest mountain, Monte Rosa, and 28 other 4000m plus peaks...not to mention the many glaciers in between.
This holiday is based in the beautiful village of Zermatt high in the canton of Valais. Only accessible on foot, by train or cable car, it is a magical place.
Whilst tourism is the main source of income, farming still plays an important part in village life. Beneath the world's most immediately recognisable mountain lies the village of Zermatt, our alpine home for a week of breathtaking views. Zermatt lies at a height of 1600m at the head of a high alpine valley, surrounded on three sides by thirty eight peaks towering to over 4,000m, massive glaciers and tumbling waterfalls. Dominating the views is the mighty Matterhorn, first climbed by Edward Whymper in 1865. Cable cars and trains whisk us from the village to walks past pretty alpine huts and through flower-filled meadows.
We use the excellent transport network to explore the Matterhorn region, visiting a different area every day. All the journeys to the start and from the end of the walks are spectacular – sit back and enjoy the mountain views as the trains and cable cars take the strain.
