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.

We wanted to walk the 5-lakes-trail but found the signposting a bit confusing. In any case, the landscape was astonishing and we enjoyed the crisp mountain air very much.

It really feels like flying. Great walks from the arrival Station and from higher points. The gondola from there takes you to Blauherd which is fantastic too.

Jun 16: Post our morning trip to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise, post lunch we decided to go to Sunnegga. The ride up from Zermatt is via a funicular. This is a marvel - they have cut through the mountain for a steep incline funicular to reach the top of Sunnegga from Zermatt. The ride is less than 5 minutes. Once out of the station, you are presented with a wonderful view of the Matterhorn. While we didnt eat at the restaurant, one can sit having a drink and enjoy a clear view of the mountain. There is a large area (few steps below) where one can relax on the greens. There is also a lake below for which you have to take the lift to go down.

Awful, crowded subterranean train, sometimes with long lines when all other lifts close down due to weather. It takes us to some mediocre or worse slopes, again very crowded. Not to mention that I could not avoid thinking when few years back a similar contraption in Austria burned down, with all the passengers inside. I prefer to get on the slopes in ski lifts.
