ITINERARY

Day 1, Arrival in Switzerland – Explore Zermatt

Arrive in Switzerland. Rail transfer to Zermatt.

With the impressive Matterhorn towering in the background, Zermatt is one of the best-known resorts in Switzerland. Zermatt offers a perfect backdrop to a holiday in the mountains and has a lively, sparkling atmosphere quite different to other mountain resorts. Gondolas, cable cars and cog trains offer the visitor a huge choice of walks and hikes in the surrounding mountains. The picturesque centre of Zermatt is a joy to explore on foot. Traffic-free, only electric cars and horse-drawn carriages are allowed! The classic town centre is maintained in a traditional style, with typical Swiss houses and shop fronts lining the streets.

Overnight at your hotel in Zermatt.

Day 2, Excursion to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise

Breakfast at your hotel.

The Matterhorn Glacier Paradise is the highest vantage point in Europe - standing at 3,883m above sea level, right next to the Matterhorn. A series of gondolas and cable cars take you up to the summit and the fantastic panorama - a breathtaking view of Italian, French and Swiss alpine giants. A tunnel through the rocks and ice of the Klein Matterhorn takes you to the Glacier Paradise. The Glacier Palace is a mystical world of ice and snow almost 15m under the surface. You will learn about glaciology and the creation of glaciers, you will see impressive sculptures made of ice and if you dare you can walk through a real glacier crevasse. The air is thin, so don’t try to do anything too quickly and take to time to relax in the highest restaurant in Europe.

Overnight at your hotel in Zermatt.

Free day in Zermatt. Take advantage of your included Half Fare Card in order to get 50% discount on the Gornergrat excursion - the highest cogwheel train in Switzerland that takes you to an altitude of 3,089m (10,134ft) above sea level.
