My Husband is a pilot & manic aviation tragic. We hired a private helo for 30 min to ourselves, and the experience was beyond fabulous. Air Zurmatt to the summit of the Matterhorn ... he rated this as one of his top 5 ever!

I live in Switzerland and I've seen a lot of beautiful views through the alps, but there's nothing compared to flying above those peaks!!! Not to mention that the pilots here are known to be amongst the best! This could seem a little pricey but totally worth it! Make sure the weather forecast is on your side!

We tried to get a same/day reservation but were unsuccessful. Please make a reservation beforehand as they fly helicopters with groups of 4-persons. If you are traveling with only one other person, your reservation is "temporary" until a second couple books the same day/flight. As in my case, we were not lucky getting a second couple to agree to join.

We travelled to Zermatt yesterday from Saas Fee especially for this trip which we had booked. Awesome doesn't do it justice. I would say to anyone interested to do it! We did it with a swiss man and his son. The pilot described the flight in both swiss and then English for us. To circle the summit of the Matterhorn... More

Well, I can only say the flight was stable. But overall the arrangement was poor! I don't understand German (or French?) at all. But the pilot just kept introducing during the flight in the language I don't know. There were two couples, and in common sense they should be arranged to be seated together. But eventually, I was put to... More

It was the highlight of our 6wk travelling holiday! We were so excited about this flight and we were certainly not disappointed. It was absolutely breathtaking, the views of the mountains and to be so close and as high as the Matterhorn. It was a very special time for us as a family and one we will never forget. The... More

took a 30 mins ride to the Alps, was wonderful and breath taking. The pilot, was amazing in giving us all the details of the flight and explaining us about every part of the area being covered from the ride. Highly recommended for people who come down to stay in Zermatt and take the Matterhorn mountain excursion.

had the pleasure of another 30 minute flight around the Alps surrounding Zermatt along with friends from Liverpool. Service at the Heliport was friendly, efficient and professional. Even had the chance to speak with some of the team on the ground. The pilot, Jan, was great. He explained everything to us throughout the flight. Any visit to Zermatt without a... More
