We traveled to this lovely top of the world location to be able to have once in a lifetime views of the Matterhorn. This is a must do if you are in Zermatt!

Up to over 3800m to the top of the Kleinmatterhorn. Awesome feeling to be inside the glacier - just inside the ice. Great view to the Matterhorn. A must if you are in Zermatt.

Just the Gondolas on the Cable car initially provide magnificent views before graduating to the larger cable car to the top. We did this as part of a full day trip and it was worth every moment.

The Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is fantastic! Just make sure to wear a jacket and long pants because it is a bit chilly inside the Glacier Paradise. Very much worth-while to see.

The Glacier Paradise is exquisite, and the ride up the lifts itself was an experience. The view from the top was breathtaking and captured the grandeur of the Alps.

You can't stay in Zermatt without experiencing this place. Stunning views from the top, in all directions, including the Matterhorn.

Glacier Paradise offers a great view of the mountains around the Matterhorn and is just a lift-ride away from Zermatt.

When buying a ticket to the Klein Matterhorn, or Matterhorn glacer Paradise, buy a ticket included the glacier Paradise. The entrance is with a lift, in the glacier it is of course very cold. Artist makes sculptures in ice. There is a walk to see them, also one can see the working of the glacier. It is really very special... More
