Holidays to Zermatt
For a memorable getaway in the mountains, it doesn’t get much better than Zermatt. This small resort is nestled in a valley between some of the most famous pinnacles in the Alps, including the legendary Matterhorn and Switzerland’s highest peak, Monte Rosa. This is one of the most sought after resorts in the world for those who like mountain sports and incredible Alpine scenery.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Zermatt
Zermatt is a pleasant place to wander around, as no combustion-engine cars are allowed on the streets. You can step out of your cosy hotel or chalet, walk along cobbled streets lined with charming shops and cafes, and make your way to the ski lifts, all on foot. This makes the resort particularly peaceful and the air incredibly fresh. From the resort there are many trails that branch off into the valley and pine forests and up the slopes of the mountains.
For most travellers on a holiday to Zermatt, the peaks surrounding the resort are just too tempting to simply admire from afar. There are many cable cars, gondolas, and ski lifts that can be used to reach the ski areas and hiking trails high up on the mountains. Skiers and snowboarders of all levels will find runs to suit their ability here, and mountain climbers can hire guides or trek on their own to the summits. During the warmer months, mountain bikers will find many thrilling downhill trails and parks on the slopes.
Another appealing aspect of Zermatt is the quality of accommodation here. Many hotels offer swimming pools, hot tubs, and stylish restaurants offering superb Swiss and international dishes as well as enticing wine lists. Most hotel rooms, chalets, and apartments offer breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, and no matter where you stay, you are never far from inviting eateries and cheerful pubs and bars.
