Located in the southwestern canton of Valais, the car-free alpine village of Zermatt is not only a famous Swiss winter vacation resort, but also a meeting point for lovers of beautiful mountain scenery all year long! Above Zermatt’s ski slopes rises the Matterhorn, one of the most beautiful and striking mountains in the world.
This year-round ski resort boasts 100% snow guarantee, with direct links to Cervinia, Italy, an added attraction. An awesome 7500ft of vertical plus a lively apres ski scene, great shopping and many excellent restaurants round out a perfect winter destination. Our verdict is short and simple: you must try Zermatt before you die. There is nowhere else to match it.
Zurich is the best option, from where it is a 3 hour Swiss Rail ride to the resort.
Geneva Airport is another option, adding about 30 minutes to your transfer time.
