Tour description:
From Zurich, we start our train journey to Zermatt. Instead of taking the fast train that travels through a lot of tunnels, we change trains in Bern and take the regional train which takes the mountain route, our first, out of many beautiful train journeys today.

In Brig, we change to another regional train that will bring us all the way up to Zermatt. We arrive around noon.

In Zermatt, we take you on a small walk through this beautiful car-free town.

Soon after, we board the mountain peak train which will bring us on a spectacular journey all the way to the top. The Gornergrat. The railway station is located on 3,090 m/ 10,140 ft.

The view from here is impressive. On a clear day, you have perfect views of the Monte Rosa massif with the Dufourspitze, the highest peak in Switzerland, the Matterhorn and the Gorner glacier.

You have plenty of time to relax, enjoy the panorama and have lunch. When you are ready, we start the descent back to Zermatt.

There you can have some free time for shopping or an early dinner before we head back to Zurich. At the latest by 8 PM, we leave Zermatt and travel back to Zurich.
