Situated in the Canton of Valais in Switzerland, Zermatt is a very famous spot among mountaineers. In this area, we can enjoy different types of outdoor activities, come join me on a unique hiking day!

From Zermatt, we’ll go to Sunnegga, a ski resort that offers a fantastic view of the astonishing Matterhorn. Afterwards, we’ll continue to the Leisee Lake, the Grünsee Lake and to the Riffelalp resort at 2,222 meters above sea level.

From this point, we’ll hike to Riffelberg (2,582 meters), the highest point of our journey, and continue to the Gorner Glacier, on the Monte Rosa Massif. Then we’ll walk to Furi and, going through the village of Blatten, we’ll return to Zermatt.

Finally, keep in mind that it is important to have a good level of fitness to join this program. On this hike, we’ll spend 6 hours walking and face an elevation gain of around 1,000 meters.
