    What to Expect
    Leave your Lucerne hotel around 8:30am with your private guide, and head to the station. Aboard an intercity train, you’ll ride to Visp, then change to the Matterhorn railway. Shuttling you high into the mountain valley, the line takes in stunning glimpses of the iconic Swiss mountain before it ends in Zermatt.

    Stroll along the pedestrianised streets, admiring the traditional wooden chalets and flower-decked houses that have sealed Zermatt’s reputation as a postcard-perfect mountain town. Along the way, you’ll also see the local cemetery and a memorial stone dedicated to the mountaineers of the Matterhorn.

    Hear tales about the first group who scaled the peak back in 1865, as you gaze at the summit from the village. Then, after a coffee, you’ll ride on the cogwheel railway to Mt. Gornergrat, which sits at an altitude of some 10,285 feet (3,135 meters). High in the mountains, you’ll see the hut of Monte Rosa and a camera-worthy view of the Matterhorn.

    Stop for lunch on the mountain at your own expense, then return to Zermatt to visit the local museum. Here, you’ll learn about mountaineering in the town and region, and also discover more about the first Matterhorn ascent.

    Later, return to the Zermatt station and travel back to Lucerne via Visp. Your day trip ends with a hotel drop-off around 6pm.

    Please note: The Zermatt Museum is closed between November and April.
