Winter Hiking with Children

Frolicking with the children in the snow and enjoying the winter. What could be better than a walk through the snowy world in and around Zermatt.

Children love snow. This is how one can get them to hike, just by the way. Take the way through a snowy winter landscape, where it is also possible to see wild animals. Some of the winter hiking trails are also suitable for sledges, so that they are also interesting for the smallest family members. What could be better than having fun in the snow, building a snowman or starting a snowball fight.
