Step by Step

Switzerland has one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world. Here you will find the ancient alpine village of Zermatt and the Gornergrat, the two places this tour will take you to. You'll also get a return shuttle service from Zurich, just over 3.5 hours away.

On this adventure you will be accompanied by an expert guide through the magical village of Zermatt and see the old wooden houses. You will be able to ascend by train to the mythical Gornergrat mountain, at an altitude of more than 3,000 metres, and see the panorama of the surrounding mountains. The activity will be carried out in small groups of approximately 12 people, thus optimising the experience.

The Swiss commune of Zermatt is not only known for its ski resort, one of the most exclusive in the country, but also for its charm and wide variety of leisure activities to do there. The town's commitment to the environment has led them to ban the use of non-electric vehicles, giving the experience an added touch of authenticity.

At an altitude of 3,090 metres above Zermatt, you'll find the Gornergrat, whose viewing platform offers views of the Matterhorn, Monte Rosa, the Matterhorn and the entire mountain range. You'll climb to the top on a cog railway, which is an excursion in itself, with dizzying climbs, tunnels and viaducts, larch and pine forests , and a unique Swiss paradise.

    It was one of the best excursions we chose to do in Switzerland! It is mostly for those who love peace and nature, it is a unique contact with this part of Switzerland. The day flew by, we were looking forward to staying with my family. All the service was great.

    Zermatt is unique in Switzerland. With a super country and local style, almost all the buildings are made of wood with beautiful finishes. It felt very cozy! The guide was very communicative as well and friendly. I really enjoyed the day! Then I happily returned to Zurich.
