The Sunnegga-Trail is easily reached by rail: in Zermatt just take the funicular up to Sunnegga. Once at the top, there’s a glimpse of the Matterhorn and off you go. The trail starts directly beneath Sunnegga Station and it’s great for beginners and professionals alike. Follow the trail for around six kilometres, dropping a total of 500m, you’ll find yourself back above Zermatt after a 30-minute ride through the woods.

You can either tack the Sunnegga-Trail on to the end of a longer tour or simply ride the trail several times: it’s highly suitable for both options.

Starting point is underneath the Sunnegga station - Patrullarve - Haueten - Riedstrasse

We recommend:

  • Bike in excellent working order
  • Helmet, gloves and (trail) bell
  • Repair kit in case of any defects
  • Clothing suitable for the weather (always carry a waterproof)
  • Food and drink

The best idea is to tackle this trail in several consecutive rides so as to test your sense of balance. After several rides it’s interesting to try to pedal as little as possible and use the momentum to come down into the valley.

  • Always wear gloves and a helmet.
  • Use marked bike trails and routes only, and observe all signposting. Please close gates after passing through.
  • Please be considerate to walkers and to plants and animals. As a rule, walkers have priority.
  • When planning, take into account participants’ fitness level and ability: some routes lead above 3,000 metres.
  • All riding is at one’s own risk.

Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk.
*The additional reflector does not replace an avalanche beacon.
