The Mattehorn Glacier Paradise is accessed via a string of cable cars and lifts from Zermatt and the views on the way up are guaranteed to take your breath away. Unfortunately if you don't get up really early you are likely to get caught in significant ques both up and down with us having waited an hour to access the... More

The biggest glacier skiing in Europe, excellent lifts, pistes, nice food! You can start your day in Switzerland, ski to Italy for lunch and come back to Zermatt for dinner!

This isn't just about the glacier paradise, but you're also heading up to the best viewing platform of the Matterhorn in Zermatt (possibly one of the best in the world). Located at the start of the summer ski field the glacier paradise is definitely worth a visit, not only because of the glacier itself but that you can take your... More

The ride up on the gondola and cable car were amazing & so beautiful. Views of the Matterhorn from the top were incredible. Being inside a glacier was very cool and we had a snack at the restaurant at the top. Perfect family day!

We took the cable car from Zermatt up to the top, to the Glacier Paradise on a cold and wet summer day. We were not really well dressed for -4C on the top and powder snow falling in the driving wind. We didn't see the views, because of the weather, and it was hard to be outside or in the... More

This is definitely a not to miss attraction if you are in Zermatt, the views at the top and those on the way to the top from the cable cars are magnificent. Do take the elevator to the top viewing platform to enjoy magnificent views of the Matterhorn from a different angle than what is seen from the village, as... More

Can you believe that they have a slide built as a tunnel (Swiss, of course) inside the Glacier? Quite fun at 3800m altitude... There is also Tubing, free of charge at the top, not to mention the skiing you can do, or the views you get...

Even though the weather and visibility were really bad,I wouldn't have missed this for anything. It's just so amazing, the views you get from the cable cars, and the glacier palace itself was stunning. One word of advice, wear about three layers of clothing as it is freezing.

At almost $100 USD per person for one cable car trip (in the summer), it's obviously a huge tourist rip off and money grab. If however you can catch it on a CLEAR DAY, the veiws of the Matterhorn and surrounding mountains are fantastic, I would rate it as excellent if not for the gready price.
