Recommendations from our concierge
Zermatt is a mecca for winter sports fans, but the region also has plenty to offer in the summer: relaxing hikes in the fresh mountain air, mountain biking along glorious mountain lakes or having fun while swinging in the Zermatt climbing park – there really is something for everyone!
Forest Fun Park
Ever wanted to feel like Tarzan? The Forest Fun Park offers the chance for both young and old to let their hair down and hang loose in the outdoors. The safety system that is installed on the entire course, the differing grades of difficulty and the view of the Matterhorn will all make this into an unforgettable experience – fun and adventure guaranteed.
A summer visit to the Gorner gorge is guaranteed to be an unforgettable trip for the whole family. Excursions with mountain guides offer the best possible experience. Our insider tip: if you are planning to head to the gorge from mid-September onwards, you will be able to see the gorge in the best light conditions and gaze in awe at the magical blue water.
Up in the sky high above Zermatt
A sightseeing flight over the majestic Matterhorn and the other magnificent peaks in the Valais Alps is an unforgettable experience. Especially when you can also take in breathtaking views of rugged glaciers. Air Zermatt also flies special routes on request.
Waterskiing on the Schalisee lake
A different kind of skiing: the Schalisee lake now has a 109-metre-long water ski lift that is available in summer. If you want to plan an unforgettable trip with your family, you shouldn’t miss this great opportunity! Please call +41 79 501 74 50 for further information.
Small but excellent: the Horu cheese dairy entices visitors into Zermatt’s world of pure delight with exquisite, traditionally made products. There is plenty to choose from – 10 different flavours of yoghurt, Mutschli cheese and a variety of fondue mixtures are just the beginning.
The atmosphere in the spa at the Grand Hotel Zermatterhof reflects the world of the Alps. The Alpine spa landscape includes a pool, whirlpool, sauna area with a hot air sauna, steam bath, Alpine and ice grottos, and a private couples’ spa.
The magical charm of the eternal ice
Explore the glacier palace 15 metres below the surface of the ice and experience the magic of the stunning ice crystals. With breathtaking ice sculptures, crevasses and an ice slide, it is guaranteed to be an experience you will never forget and a truly unique hike.
A different kind of shooting
It’s so easy! Clay pigeon shooting in Schweigmatte near Furi calls for an infrared gun and two nimble hands. Children and adults of all ages are welcome. A gun master is on hand to offer free lessons to help you win challenges. Practice makes perfect, after all!
Dining with the stars
Enjoy unlimited fondue chinoise that is out of this world in the 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat. Local star guide Peter Salzmann will provide interesting insights into the constellations and tell the Greek myths and legends of Zeus, Hera and other gods to enlighten listeners.
