Meet the Sheep - guided hike

Description

Who hasn’t seen them before, the famous, black-nosed sheep from Zermatt? Their spiralled horns, black faces and ears and white woolly coat - which is special in itself. Between 1. July and mid-September 2021 around 150 of these unique sheep will be grazing on the Gornergrat.

If you don’t want to go looking for the sheep by yourself but would prefer to have a guide to take you to them then every Wednesday and Saturday we have guided walks for you. Your guide from ‘the Zermatters’ will not only take you to the sheep but give you a lot of insider information and tips about the local region.
