Hiking Trail Just Below Riffelalp Zermatt  Switzerland

Hiking Trail Just Below Riffelalp

This is the vista from the walking trail connecting Riffelalp to Zermatt. This location is a winter walker's paradise, but beware: it can be quite slippery! Make sure you bring your hiking poles and some boot grips (YakTrax or similar work fine). Those who walk this trail will stop at least a dozen times (as we did) and gasp at the beautiful winter landscapes, especially with the heavy snow cover as you see here. Stopping in at a mountain chalet for lunch & drinks halfway through the hike is recommended and unforgettable.
