Zermatt – a year-round holiday destination.
Whilst most of its winter clientele will only know Zermatt as Switzerland’s premier winter sports centre, the resort is practically unique as one of the Alps’ few year-round holiday destinations.
The fascinating high street and heart of this charming village is just as busy in the spring, summer and autumn as it is during the ski season. Any day of the year you can be sure to find visitors photographing each other on the bridge below the church with its view of the iconic Matterhorn. Unlike most Alpine resorts, Zermatt is one that doesn’t go into hibernation when the skiers leave.
Famous as a mountaineering mecca, Zermatt also offers an impressive catalogue of less vertiginous activities for all tastes and degrees of fitness, including mountain biking, hiking, waterskiing and golf on the popular 9 hole course down in Täsch. What’s more, there’s the mouth watering choice of restaurants, both in the village and on the mountain, for which Zermatt is so well known.
And for those who can’t get enough during the winter, Zermatt offers 365 day-a-year piste-skiing possibilities towards the Kleine Matterhorn which, accessed by Europe’s highest gondola lift, offers one of the Alps’ best panoramas and a fantastic view of the Matterhorn itself.
Visitors will find an unparalleled selection of hotels, pensions, chalets and apartments throughout the long summer season together with an engaging programme of well organized cultural and sports events.
Unlike the winter, when our programme is based around our featured accommodation, the summer allows us so many more possibilities, so contact us with your requirements, whatever they may be, and we would be pleased to give you a personalised quotation for your stay in Zermatt.
