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 Private Guides

If you want to take it steadily, we would recommend the flow trails (Moos-Trail and Sunnegga-Trail) or the Bike-Tour Schwarzsee-Zermatt. For more technically accomplished mountain bikers, the Alpine terrain tours are just right (e.g. Bike-Tour 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. All of the tours are also suitable for e-bikes.
