Swiss Icon
It's a long journey to the village of Zermatt, Switzerland. A village magically situated at the base of iconic Matterhorn. We arrived after driving hours of precariously winding alpine roads, followed by an enchanting but just as precarious train ride to Zermatt. You see the village is closed to all automobile traffic, and through winding pedestrian streets and charming timber chalets we were finally viewed the Swiss Icon we had traveled so far to see. Zermatt offers some of the best view of the Matterhorn. It also offers the best opportunity to get up and close with this natural wonder. From Zermatt you can hike, bike, and even ski the famous mountain. No trip to Switzerland is complete without a visit to Zermatt and the Matterhorn.
