Non-Ski Activities
Crowned by the Matterhorn, with diverse terrain and gourmet restaurants, Zermatt is in a class of its own.

Switzerland’s most famous resort holds legendary status, with scenic slopes that flow into Italy. And if you dream of heli-skiing and untracked off-piste, this is arguably the best place in Europe.

Surrounded by 4,000-metre peaks, snow-sure slopes sweep beneath the glacier and iconic Matterhorn, giving breathtaking views as you carve above the tree line. The long runs into Cervinia (in Italy) are well worth it, just don't miss the last lift back - the taxi ride is expensive!

The resort’s stylish hotels and lounge bars fringe the old town, where horse-drawn sleighs jingle down narrow lanes. A mix of old and new, Zermatt is a prosperous place, with more designer boutiques and Michelin stars than most - for a special meal, try the local specialties at Le Mazot.

A year-round resort, Zermatt’s non-ski activities are particularly good, with the Alpine museum and scenic helicopter flights top of our list. To extend your Zermatt ski holiday, the famous Glacier Express train travels directly to St Moritz - an unforgettable combination for a Glacier Express Ski Safari.

Accommodation
Zermatt’s accommodation spans cutting-edge design hotels to traditional lodges and good value apartments. Most are conveniently located in town within a short walk of shuttles and lifts, but few offer ski-in ski-out. At the 4*+ Matterhorn Focus we highly recommend upgrading to a Deluxe Room for floor to ceiling windows with Matterhorn views.

We’ve stayed at or visited all of our Zermatt accommodation options, so call us for advice and we’ll recommend the best ones for you.
