Wonderful experience. Not as crowded as the Jungfrauch or as expensive. Could actually walk out on the glacier. Amazing view from the top.

We were so fortunate to stay in Zermatt and have an amazing view of the Matterhorn, then, to travel up to Glacier Paradise (see other review). Fun things to do up there to, if you’re game. It’s a big day out, but worth the cost...More
