Cross-country skiing in Täsch

Sledding / ice skating
Prefer to take things down a gear? Head to the sled run on Riffelberg or do a few laps around Zermatt’s ice skating rink.

For an extra-special holiday experience, take a Zermatt sunrise trip after a hearty mountain breakfast, or go skiing by the light of the moon followed by a delicious fondue party. Equally popular is the First Track offer, which enables skiers to hit the slopes before they’re officially opened to the general public.



Hiking, Mountaineering
Zermatt has over 400 kilometres of marked trails to explore. 70 kilometres are even accessible in winter, so you can experience the peace and tranquillity of the snow-covered Alpine wilderness. The most popular Zermatt hiking routes are the Matterhorn Trail and the Haute Route.
The Matterhorn is surrounded by 38 peaks that soar to a staggering 4,000 metres above sea level. A good place to start is the Breithorn, which takes 2.5 hours to reach from the Matterhorn glacier. You can warm up on the Riffelhorn or the Schweifinen via ferrata, or hone your skills in the Gorner gorge and the region’s many other amazing routes. Then you’ll be ready to tackle the Matterhorn!

Summer skiing
The highest and largest summer skiing area in the Alps boasts 21 kilometres of piste and a freeriding park.

Mountain biking
Six routes covering a total of 100 kilometres wind their way down through a glorious Alpine landscape with an average decrease in altitude of 1,000 metres. Try the downhill runs or the four-cross tracks from Sunnegga!

Go Alpine golfing just outside Zermatt at the nine-hole Matterhorn golf course, where you’ll be rewarded with a superb view of the Breithorn and the Klein Matterhorn.

Glacier Express
The world’s most famous railway takes you from Zermatt to Davos or St. Moritz in around seven hours. You’ll pass pristine mountain landscapes and exclusive resort towns, cross deep gorges and charming valleys, pass through 91 tunnels and over 291 impressive bridges.
