Winter hiking/walking trails
The winter views here are some of the finest in the Zermatt region. The trail leads below the shady Riffelhorn and back into dazzling sunshine, revealing a breathtaking vista culminating in the Gornergrat. A fairy-tale adventure with views that seem to go on for ever.
This varied walk leads through the different quarters of the village of Zermatt, revealing glimpses of the interiors of many homes and holiday apartments. The trail then enters the forest for the climb to the scenic viewpoint of Gryfelplatte.
From the centre of the village of Zermatt up into the mountain sunshine, under one’s own steam: that’s the essence of this bracing hike. A climb through the romantic, snow-blanketed forest accesses the open slopes leading to Sunnegga and glorious views.
