Hiking in Zermatt Switzerland

Zermatt Hiking

On this trip you can unpack your bags and enjoy day hikes on and around the Matterhorn, known at the Sphinx of the Alps, in Zermatt. Zermatt is in the German-speaking region of the Swiss canton of Wallis. The Matterhorn towers over this area next to the Italian border. Although there are numerous 4,000 meter high peaks nearby, none has quite the same irresistible pull on one’s shutter finger as the Matterhorn, as evidenced by the number of photographs of the Matterhorn that inevitably come home from Zermatt hiking vacations.
