And what can you do during your holiday in Zermatt?
We can give you many answers to that question. One suggestion, for example: explore the breathtaking Gorner Gorge, which is about a 15-minute walk from Winkelmatten. Stroll along themed hiking trails through tranquil forests or go up to higher altitudes, where you will find unspoilt mountain scenery. See if you can spot ibex, chamois and eagles. Or go for a ride on your bike: 100 km of trails for all abilities await you. Or you could climb a four-thousand-metre peak, or enjoy an exhilarating hike on a glacier. Or maybe play a game of tennis? Would you prefer a relaxing walk? Or maybe a swim in one of the 150 mountain lakes in the area around Zermatt? Whether you’re looking for a sporting adventure or a nice picnic in the countryside, or anything else in between – you’ll find the perfect holiday here. In winter 360 km of ski pistes with guaranteed snow await you. There’s an enormous range of possibilities: ski-touring, free-riding or heli-skiing, for example. If you prefer to just take it easy, you can go snowshoeing or hiking on winter trails. Just ask us – we will gladly give you further tips for things you can do here.
