Meet the Sheep - guided hike



Getting to know he Wallis black nose sheep should be on every visitor to Zermatt’s bucket list.  Their spiralled horns, curly white wool and black spots on the knees make them very special.  Between 25. June and 10. September 2022 around 120 of these beautiful creatures will be grazing on the Gornergrat.

If you don’t want to try and find the sheep by yourself you can hire a guide to lead you to the flock.  Every Wednesday and Saturday we offer guided hikes.  A guide from the ‘Zermatters’ doesn’t just take you to the sheep but on the way gives everyone a lot of extra information and interesting facts about the local area.
