We ride up Europes highest cable car to the Kleine Matterhorn, at 12,533 feet, offering a close look at the famous Matterhorn. People ski year-round at this extreme height, so you will see lots of snowboard and skiing action. On the way back down you can get off the cablecar at an intermediate station and walk the rest of the way down the mountain on a very easy, gentle trail through meadows filled with wildflowers, and more majestic mountain views. It just takes a few hours and is one of the nicest, easy hikes of the tour. You will find that there are plenty of fun things to do in Zermatt. It is one of the best places in the Alps for nature walks, ranging from the gentlest stroll to more vigorous hikes in the mountains. There are a number of Alpine lakes with easy trails that will lead you there and back with no strain at all. The rewards are many: beautiful views, uncrowded trails, fresh mountain air, downhill paths, wildflowers in bloom and scenic rest spots along the way. Zermatt is one of Switzerlands favorite destinations, surrounded by gigantic mountains piercing the sky, with beautiful paths reaching out in every direction, calling you to come for a splendid scenic stroll. This famous resort offers old-fashioned charm with all the modern comforts. Horse-drawn carriages or electric carts — vigorous mountain walks, or relaxing cafes — quaint chalets, and small shopping malls. Here you can truly have it all. You can easily spend the entire day out in the mountains, walking, riding, eating, and enjoying the astonishing views.
