With the Swiss Travel Pass, the tickets are half-off. Even at full value, it's an experience you won't forget. Just stunning views (when the weather is good).

Expensive but worth the cost if visiting zermatt. Sculptured ice, great viewing point but be prepared to wrap up and big screen information telling.

Took a while to get to zermatt, drove from chamonix but it was worth it. The glacier paradise was a bit price at $227 Canadian for 2 ppl and that was after 130pm when the price dropped. But it was worth it I think. The Matterhorn got covered by clouds before we got there but we got some pics from... More

Went on the "first tracks" offer with the skylights and got to ski from the top as the lifts were opening. What a wonderful start to the day. Highly Recommended. This was followed by breakfast at the newly refurbished Matterhorn Glacier stop where we were served a full breakfast as the first skiers were arriving.

The glacier walk through was great! You walk through the middle of the glacier and it's huge! There are ice sculptures also, very impressive! The views from the lookout are incredible also! The restaurant is extremely overpriced however like the whole of Switzerland!

We started the trip at about 1030am from our hotel and arrived back only at about 4pm. Of course the cable car rides took in total about 1.5 hours. We had a great time taking pictures almost everywhere and inside the glacier ice palace, as well as playing the snow tube. We had great weather - both the sun as... More

The trip up is breathtaking. Although it was sunny and warm in Zermatt, it was bright, cold, and very windy at the top. Amazing 360 degree view at top, and I was able to use the panorama option on my iPhone. There's summer skiing up there, and we were able to watch the skiers from the restaurant. However, I was...

When I arrived the paradise, really feel I have detached from the world and arrived another paradise! Really must go with your beloved one! Cannot describe more in words, really need to be there in person and feel and the touch of the view.
