Bike tours

There are routes for all types of bikes in the three areas of Schwarzsee, Gornergrat and Sunnegga / Rothorn. Whether you're a novice or a pro, there are tours and flow trails offering technical challenges, all in stunning surroundings.

Bike schools & guides

If you want to take it steadily, we would recommend the flow trails (Moos-Trail and Sunnegga-Trail), for more technically accomplished mountain bikers, the Alpine terrain tours are just right (e.g. bike tour Gornergrat Classic or Kelle).

Many of the tours are suitable for a quick trip out, but if you’d like to spend the whole day on your bike, you can combine several tours and treat yourself to a break in one of the mountain restaurants.

If you don't want to try out a route on your own, a local guide will be happy to accompany you and give you some helpful hints and tips. The Zermatt – Matterhorn destination’s bike schools and guides work hard to accommodate their guests’ needs and put together the right mountain bike or e-bike tour for them.
