Description

The Matterhorn valley in the Alps is one of the most famous and beautiful destinations in the entire world!

Join us and spend four incredibly scenic days exploring the valley on foot. Over the course of the trip, we will enjoy various incredible views, climb up a 3.000 meter high mountain and pass the famous Stellisee, the iconic lake beneath the Matterhorn. 

The fun begins after we’ve picked you up from the airport and driven to Randa. From here, we will hike on the Europa trail to  the famous Europahut, which sits at 2.000 meters above sea level and has lovely views of the surroundings. 

The following day, we will hike along the Europaweg to the Täschalp, crossing the 500-meter long Charles Kuonen suspension bridge – the longest in the world – in the morning, before hiking into the Täsch valley. Here, we will spend the night in another cosy mountain hut, enjoying views out over 3.000-meter high mountains and glaciers.

The third day, we will head out on a more serious adventure, departing  Täschalp and hiking toward Pfulwe peak (3.313 meters). We will begin by hiking up to Pfulwepass, with the option to continue on to the summit or not.

From both the pass and the summit, we will have great views out over the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa, among many other mountains. After taking in the view, we will hike down to the Stellisee, before ending our day in Zermatt.

On the fourth and final day of our trip, we will enjoy a nice hike along Edelweiss traverse, taking in some more great views before returning to Zermatt and transferring to the airport.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 4-day hiking adventure around the Matterhorn valley!
