Would you like to discover a magical land in Switzerland? Come with me on this 1-day hike and explore the gorgeous Schwarzsee Lake, among other beautiful spots.

Situated at the base of the Matterhorn, the Schwarzsee Lake lies above Zermatt, in the Canton of Valais. This fairy tale region is well worth visiting and is an incredible place to go hiking.

This program has a duration of around 6 hours . First we’ll meet in Zermatt and then we’ll begin our hike through the woods until we reach the small village of Zmutt. Then, we’ll continue the walk to the Schwarzsee Lake, situated at 2,552 meters above sea level. Once there, we’ll contemplate the north side of the stunning Matterhorn as well as the Breithorn and Mount Rosa. Finally, we’ll follow a steep road to Furi and continue through woods and meadows to the village of Blatten, from where we’ll go back to Zermatt.

Please, consider that we’ll face an elevation gain of around 1,000 meters so it is very important to be physically fit.

If you think this hiking program will suit you, please send the request and book your place. I’ll be happy to guide you through this beautiful area in Switzerland.

Additionally, you can take a look at this other trekking program that I lead in the Swiss Alps.
