  • Spend several hours exploring an amazing glacier.

  • Visit the beautiful resort town of Zermatt.

When it comes to the Alps of Switzerland, there a few things that immediately come to mind. Those things usually begin with the peaks, which are spectacular, the skiing, which is great, and the glaciers. And on this day long hike, I would like to take you on an unforgettable journey where you can explore an enormous glacier!

This trip is based in the beautiful resort town of Zermatt. From the town, which I recommend you spend some time in as it is a great place to explore, we will venture to a nearby glacier.

Since this trip takes place during the summer months, the glacier will be relatively free of snow. As a result, you will get to clearly see all of the crevasses scattered throughout. Hence making the trek very safe.

On the glacier, you will get to see everything from a middle moraine along with an assortment of glacier lakes, mills and tables. You may also get to see a marmot, jackdaw or goat as well.

The trek will take approximately 4 to 5 hours. And while you don’t require any technical experience to enjoy this adventure, you should be in good physical condition.

Beautiful, unique and exciting, exploring a glacier is a sensational experience. And to do it amidst the backdrop of the Swiss Alps, near the wonderful town of Zermatt, only makes the trip better. To join me on this trip, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I can also take you on a 2 day hike from Zermatt to the new, modern and comfortable Monte Rosa hut, where you can enjoy amazing views of the Alps.
