MOUNTAIN CLIMBING IN ZERMATT (VALAIS ALPS)

Zermatt’s popularity as a destination has its roots in Alpine sports and mountain climbing. Sixty-five licensed mountain guides know the Matterhorn area with its 38 4000-metre peaks like the back of their hand. This kind of extreme sport is open to anyone who is physically fit – and has the necessary respect for the mountains. Explore the gorge passages, or attempt your first climb on the Riffelhorn or the Schweifinen fixed climbing trail. Place your trust in our mountain guides. In June, Zermatt offers an exciting range of Alpine experiences to mark Alpine Week.
