“Wow!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

I didn;t realsie how high we were to travel and by what means. If you are anxious about heights like me well then in are in for a scare. The gondola rides up to the Matterhorn were one of the scariest moments in my life but it was worth the achievement of reaching 4,000m above sea level, seeing snow & the amazing views. One off the bucket list!

“Beautiful, exhilerating, spectacular”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We viewed the Matterhorn from Sunneggra, about 8000 feet above sea level.The lifts were closed so we could not get any higher but the way Sunneggra was situated you do get a wonderful view. It was a completely clear day and the Mountain was viewed in all of its glory. . I understand the best view is from Schwarsee not much higher than Sunneggra but closer but my friend does not like cable cars and the visit to Sunneggra is by an enclosed funicular which ascends and descends at about 90 degree angle and you have to walk steep steps to enter the cars. If you are in Switzerland do not miss the viewing of the Matterhorn

“Fantastic ride to top”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The trip up is fantastic. The scenery and the views are magnificent. Post cards do not hold a candle to actually being there.

“Matterhorn Adventure”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Visiting Zermatt is wonderful and would not be complete without seeing the Matterhorn up close and personal. The ice caves were a welcome surprise and a unique experience. We hiked partially down (which is easy) and stopped at a small Inn/pub and had the coldest beer at the right time.
