The Matterhorn in Zermatt is certainly the most famous of all mountain peaks and is a must for every visitor of Switzerland. Upon spotting the Matterhorn, which is part of the loftiest Alps in the Valais, you will be overwhelmingly excited by its impressive beauty. Experience the breathtaking scenery in this charming, traffic-free mountain resort.
How can we conceal our pride when faced with the Matterhorn, our pyramid; the Aletsch Glacier, the longest in Europe; the cosy comfort of our thermal springs; our 47 summits over 4,000 metres high, our railways that climb mountains, our ice caverns, our delicious speciality wines, our top class resorts; the charm of our towns awaiting discovery and tempting you to linger; our gastronomy and our modest but delicious traditional dishes from days gone by; our landscapes, our meadows; our shepherds who have no time for mobile phones but live their life as they please? This is what a Valaisan summer has to offer you. A breathtaking backdrop with the pleasures of hiking, cycling, climbing, excursions, mule trekking and river rafting waiting in the wings. In other words, activities that will make you appreciate the relaxation that follows even more. And to enhance the whole experience, fresh air and a deep blue sky. Be modest, of course! But not to the extent of keeping quiet about another exclusivity: the sun that lights our daily life and our guests' holiday
