Yet even for the most hard-boiled hiker, the Matterhorn is still the mountain to end all mountains. Majestic in appearance, more photogenic than any other peak in the Alps, it invariably attracts attention to itself as if by magic. This winter hike from Sunnegga to the picturesque village of Findeln and from there down to cosmopolitan Zermatt has its sights trained squarely on the 4478-m-high summit so that you get to see the Matterhorn looking its very best every inch of the way.
Sunnegga - Findeln - Zermatt
From Sunnegga station, set off downhill along the ski slope at first and then along a prepared trail all the way to the sunny hamlet of Findeln. From there, simply follow the trail leading along the hillside down to Zermatt.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
