The Matterhorn Trek is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the beauty of one of the most iconic mountains in the world. This 7-day walking holiday in Zermatt takes you on a journey of the landscape around this world-famous mountaineering epicenter, with breathtaking views of the Matterhorn from different angles.

The itinerary is designed to showcase the best of the region, with a mix of mountain huts and hotels in idyllic locations offering great cuisine, and accommodation options ranging from dormitories to private rooms (for which you must book enough in advance).

As you trek from the green valleys to the barren rocky landscapes, you will be amazed by the panoramic views of the surrounding 4000m peaks, glaciers, and white streams of snowmelt water. Along the way, you will hike past pastures, meet some cows, and at the end of each day, relax in a mountain hotel or a hut, from which you can witness some unforgettable sunsets (and sunrises, if you wake up early enough).

We want to ensure your Matterhorn Trek experience is memorable, stress-free, and enjoyable! That’s why we take care of all the logistics for you. From providing a detailed itinerary booklet and GPS routes to booking all the accommodations, our aim is to make your trip as smooth as possible. Let us handle the planning so you can simply relax and soak in the stunning scenery.
