In summer, unless you are a mountaineer, this has to be one of the best ways to enjoy the exhilaration of height! An easy ride up through the mountain and suddenly, wham, there you are high up in the alps with direct views to the...More

Take the train up to the Sunnegga station and walk out into the glory of the Alps.. The Matterhorn rising up in front of you is aw inspiring. Take the 8km trail down to Zermatt, stopping off for lunch at 1 of 3 restaurants..

Carl, the key in the Aps is be prepared! Don't expect snow but very cold and rainy could come your way - very unpredictable. Normally the weather forecast is quite accurate so pay attention to it too.
