Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Breathless from beauty or altitude ?

Sometimes, words cannot do justice. This is the case of the beauty that waits at Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. It starts when you leave idyllic Zermatt for the highest cable car in Europe. Snow can be found 365 days a year, as well as a viewing platform featuring 38 peaks of Swiss, Italian and French Alps. It all begins when you enter the glacier palace through an ice tunnel that’s almost 50 feet below the surface. There, ice statues and a playground featuring an ice slide right through the glacier, greet you. On your ascent, you can choose to stop at Furi, Schwarzsee or Trockener Steg, giving your eyes a chance to acclimate to the splendor of the area. And then you get there ; the top of Matterhorn Glacier. Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Even in a place of highpoints, it’s a highpoint.

Here’s what’s included :

  • Includes round trip travel to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise from the Zermatt Matterhorn Express base station with a change in Trockener Steg.
  • Entrance through an ice tunnel into the glacier palace.
  • Glacier palace includes ice statues, panoramic window for viewing of Breithorn and Theodul glaciers, a playground slide through a glacier and the option to walk through a glacier crevasse on your return.
  • Access to viewing platform to see the Swiss, Italian and French Alps.
