Winter hiking on the Gornergrat with a view of the Matterhorn

Winter hiking on the Gornergrat

Unsullied nature along all the winter hiking trails on the Gornergrat

The Gornergrat is a true natural paradise. Once up at the elevation of 3,089 metres you will be only minutes away on foot from this natural landscape. The starts and finishes for various routes are between the Gornergrat and the Riffelberg.

You have several hiking trail choices on the Gornergrat. Discover the snow covered world at 3000 metres. Or you could enjoy a winter‘s day on a sunny terrace and then walk down through the Swiss pine forest (Arvenwald) to Zermatt from the Riffelalp.

The winter hiking season is over. We are looking forward to winter 2024/25. The season usually starts at the end of December.

The best ticket for your winter hikes

As a winter hiker you can buy the parts of the route that you want to do by train individually.Depending on the route, a ticket from Zermatt-Gornergrat and back could be cheaper than the separate parts of the route. It pays to compare!
