|Zermatt and the Matterhorn|
The Ossola Valley winds its way gracefully up towards the Alps and away from Lake Maggiore, leading you to the famous Simplon Pass. At the highest point of the Pass, the Belvedere View Point, there are unbeatable 360° panoramic views of the Swiss and Italian Alps. Onwards and upwards through Brig (with its Stockalper castle), Visp and along the Matter Valley leading you further into the heart of the Alps.
At Taesch you will take the rack and pinion railway up to Zermatt itself. Situated at 5,315ft above sea level, Zermatt is surrounded by some of the most famous peaks in the Alps: the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, the Gornergrat and no less than twelve “4,000’s” – peaks over 4,000m.
Zermatt is the most picturesque of the Alpine villages and is completely pedestrianised. Experience a journey up into the mountains in the cable car or take a tour of Zermatt in a traditional horse-drawn carriage. Or enjoy your free time exploring Zermatt and basking in the dramatic splendour of the Matterhorn.
