Spectacularly situated beneath the majestic Matterhorn, Zermatt has everything to offer in the way of fantastic skiing, picturesque surroundings and a lively nightlife. On arrival, by train from the village of Tasch, you will find the vibrant village centre entirely car-free, with only electric taxis and horse drawn sleighs, and streets packed with beautiful shops and boutiques.

The is the place for the rich and famous! There are 3 ski areas – the Riffelberg, the Gornergrat (with its fantastic luxury mountain train) and the Kleiner Matterhorn / Theodul Glacier ski area. The Glacier area links to the lovely town of Cervinia in Italy. Zermatt has some drawbacks however.

The town is expensive! Also, there is a lot of skiing on roads which can ice up at times. The town is not that user friendly and not compact, so one walks a fair amount. The 3 ski areas do not link to each other perfectly from the town, and one sometimes has to ski one area to get to another.


Our Opinion:

Glacier resort, car free. One of Europe’s finest….

Getting There and Around

The best is to fly in to Geneva airport. Meet us at the place designated in your resort arrival booklet for the transfer to the resort. It should take about 4 hours. The complication on the transfer is always the train ride on the last part of the valley and this takes the time. We offer scheduled shuttle transfers and private transfers, depending on your wishes, and your arrival and departure times. In the village we use the electric ski buses in this car free town.
