Zermatt

From car-free Zermatt, we hike to Zmutt, with its slate-roofed wooden houses and tiny chapel, or ride the Gornergrat Railway to its top station (10,135'), with breathtaking views of a glistening sea of ice and some 50 peaks including the Matterhorn and Monte Rosa, third highest peak in Europe.

Days 3-5
Glacier Express / Pontresina

The renowned Glacier Express brings us to Pontresina in the Engadine, with its diverse alpine flora and shimmering lakes framed by ice-clad massifs. One of our hikes brings us along the lateral moraine of the Morteratsch Glacier for stupendous views of glacier fields and snowy summits.

Days 6-8
Guarda

Guarda, set on a sunny terrace above the valley of the Inn River, offers hikes past lovely hamlets, farmhouses, and meadows to the dreamy medieval castle of Tarasp, perched on a clifftop 500 feet above the valley. Depart on Day 8.
