Zermatt is a Swiss resort with more than just excellent skiing; it also offers endurance tours, diverse cuisine, and the chance to sleep in an igloo. At Zermatt's heart is the unmistakable Matterhorn, which is descended by skiers and snowboarders or climbed by the brave. Findlerhof and Chez Vrony serve up some of the best food in Zermatt, while the igloo village offers alternative accommodation.
