Hiking trail | easy
The panorama reflects the topography: the valley floor is deep, the mountains all around extremely high. The views of the Breithorn and Klein Matterhorn are enchanting. A good opportunity to observe the mountain forest close up.
Theme trail | hard
It’s not every day that walkers have the chance to tackle the highest hiking trail in Europe (3,415 m). The view of 38 mountains above 4,000 metres is dramatic and inspiring. Along the way, sculptures invite hikers to engage in philosophical contemplation of the mountains all around.
Back-country skiing | hard
The Patrouille des Glaciers (PDG) is one of the cult events in the ski mountaineering calendar. The course leads from Zermatt via Arolla to Verbier, and represents a sporting tour de force for participating teams. The contest takes place every other year, in even-numbered years: 2014, 2016 and so on.
Mountainbiking | hard
Zermatt’s bike trails lead through meadows and forests, over gravel and stones, past lakes, always on alpine terrain. If Zermatt is the dream destination for mountain bikers, the ultimate contest is the Perskindol Swiss Epic 2014, which takes places in the Valais Alps and finishes in Zermatt.
