Zermatt Village Matterhorn Area plus Mt. Gornergrat Small Group Tour from Basel

2 reviews
Experience the unique day tour within a small group to the Matterhorn area, the glacier world and all-year-place of snow in the Alps. You meet your tour guide in Basel at the train station. Together you travel typically Swiss-style by train to Visp (2 hours) and from there by the coghwheel train to Zermatt. At Zermatt you will walk through the historical part of this alpine village and get many information about the history of climbing the Matterhorn. Your tourguide will lead you after that to the « Matterhorn railway », the coghwheel train that will take you to Mount Gornergrat, the best place for stunning views to the Matterhorn. Enjoy your time at your disposal (approx. 2 hours), where you can have lunch with a 360-degrees-panorama. You will travel back together with the tour guide to Zermatt, where the return travel via Visp to Bern will take place. Your tourguide will lead you to your train back to Zurich. Our local tour guide is happy to answer all your questions during the day.

Accessing the Rothorn requires taking the funicular to Sunnega (great vista point and cafe), then a combination gondola/chair to the next station (another great cafe) where you catch the cable car to Rothorn (10,108' above sea level). The variety of runs is outstanding, groomed and off-piste if sufficient snow covers the rocks. For intermediate or expert skiers, this is an excellent system to ski with variety all day long. And the views are incomparable.

I talked a trip to Zermatt into a business trip to Zürich. It's an easy train ride and as others have noted -- the train is the ONLY way to get to Zermatt. Within the village, you can walk or take electric miniaturized buses. The skiing was so-so due to a drought affecting the entire region but there's plenty of on-piste intermediate (red) runs to keep you occupied. What's world class are the views and apres-ski scene both on the mountain and off. It's family friendly and has something for everyone. The ONLY downside is the cost given the value of the Swiss Franc. You can save lunch money by skiing down to Cervino Italy from the Matterhorn Glacier. Dress warmly. Even in sunny days, it can be cold on Theodulgletscher as it's at 3883m and very exposed to wind. I spent most of my late afternoons on the Rothorn as it gets more sun. Don't miss the Gornergrat. It's a great way to begin your Zermatt experience.

We were on a day trip to Zermatt and did not want to do any heavy hiking or trekking. Sunegga was the perfect choice as it allowed a relaxed afternoon with a brilliant view of the Matterhorn. We returned with some great photographs and brilliant memories.
