With more than 400 km of marked hiking and walking trails, Zermatt, Täsch and Randa offer a wide range of options to hiking fans. The mountain railways make it possible to effortlessly reach altitudes up to 3,000 metres above sea level. The areas in Täsch and Randa, with breathtaking views of the Weisshorn and the peaks of the Mischabel group, are recommended to those who like to walk up to higher altitudes. Or you can follow in the footsteps of Emile Zola, Eduard Whymper and Albert Schweizer to Trift. And there are walking trails close to the villages for those who are no longer so good on their feet. Themed walking trails invite you to learn more about the area. From 2009, the destination will be introducing a network of hiking trails with uniform signposts following the "Quality Goals for Hiking Trails in Switzerland".
Incidentally: 90 % of the area consists of nature reserves of international and national importance. Hikers who prefer alpine routes can make use of the ridge trails: There are five valleys around Zermatt with more than 70 trails, including the Tour Matterhorn and the celebrated Tour Monte Rosa. 15 mountain cabins invite you to step inside. The Europaweg on a ridge trail along the Nikolaital valley is a part of the Tour Monte Rosa.
