Tour description:
From Zurich, we start our train journey to Zermatt. On this tour, we travel on the most direct route to Zermatt, where we arrive around 11 AM.

Afterward, we continue on a set of two different aerial cable cars to the Klein Matterhorn, the highest cable car station in Europe, at 3883 meters above sea level (12739 ft.)

There we have plenty of time to visit all the attractions, such as the observation platform with the summit cross and photo point and the Glacier Palace (ice cave).

Whenever you are ready (at the latest by 4 PM) we start our descent back to Zermatt. In Zermatt, you will have some free time for shopping or an early dinner.

At the latest by 8 PM, we leave Zermatt and travel back to Zurich.
