New Activities & Experiences

To forget the everyday world.


The “Zermatt 100 Years Ago” village tour

The tour through the village of Zermatt is under the theme: “A Tour with the Farmers from the Past”. During the guided tour in the old part of the village where centuries-old wooden houses, stalls and barns stand, it is possible to experience how the people lived and worked 100 years ago. You can see women weaving wool, braiding baskets or also men roofing the buildings with stone slabs. Those demonstrating these activities wear clothing in a style from that time. In an attractive and entertaining way your guide, Franz-Josef, tells you how the people lived in Zermatt then. Guided tours are in simultaneous German and English. 10 July to 28 August 2017

Hiking Trail „Europaweg“: new suspension bridge

From this summer on it will be possible to hike again on the trail „Europaweg“ between Grächen and Zermatt as a real altitude trail. For years a part of it was closed due to rock fall. The hikers had to make a detour of more than 500 metres of altitude into the valley and back. The new suspension bridge is now on a new spot. It is the longest alpine pedestrian suspension bridge of the world. Length: 365 m, 0,65 m wide, altitude on the highest point on the valley “Grabengufer”: 75 m. Opening in summer 2017.

Photos, just before the fall

“My subject – my moment – my Matterhorn photo”. With this motto in mind, it is possible to take a photograph of yourself on Gornergrat this summer. Using a green screen, a picture is taken which creates the impression that someone is just jumping into the crystal-clear Riffelsee (2,575 m). This person is the subject posing in the Matterhorn PhotoShop at 3100 Kulmhotel on Gornergrat. And the result is a photograph which fits very well in a souvenir memories album of the most beautiful trips.

Water Skiing at Schalisee

Water skiing in the mountains? Really? Of course! This is possible at Schalisee (1,428 m), the largest lake in the Nikolai Valley. There is an electric tow lift more than 100 m above the water that pulls wakeboarders and water skiers across the waves. Those who are talented can ski as many loops as they would like to extend the ride. There is also a little food stand offering snacks and drinks for the betterment and enjoyment of the water skiing fans and swimmers. Water skis, wakeboards, swimming aids and neoprene suits are included in the offer. Together, they present a one-day adventure with skiing on the glacier in the morning and water skiing on the lake in the afternoon – an irresistible adventure.
