“Meet the Sheep” on the Gornergrat


The famous Zermatt Blacknose sheep spend their summers in the mountain pastures. From July to September, they will also be on the Gornergrat. From 1 July 2021, it’s easy to find the animals, as their neck collars are fitted with a GPS tracker. The package is called “Meet the Sheep.” Guests can track the sheep’s signal on www.gornergrat.ch/sheep, follow the route and meet the sheep in the mountains. The animals are accompanied by the shepherdess Deborah, who provides fascinating information about the sheep breed from the Upper Valais from Tuesday to Sunday between 13:30 and 15:00 hrs. Guided walks to the Blacknose sheep with background information take place every Wednesday and Saturday. Saturdays also include feeding the sheep and an aperitif at the Riffelhaus 1853 on Riffelberg.
