Magical Switzerland

Nothing compares to the captivating beauty of Zermatt, Switzerland during the fall season. As the leaves begin to change and the cool of autumn sets in, visitors are greeted by spectacular views of snow-capped mountains, a blanket of golden yellow and burnt orange leaves, and majestic wildlife. Explore tranquil meadows and alpine forests or take a leisurely stroll through this quaint European village with cozy cafes, shops, and restaurants.

Iconic Matterhorn

Gazing upon the towering Matterhorn in Zermatt is an awe-inspiring experience that few ever forget. Standing more than 14,000 feet tall and surrounded by some of Switzerland's most iconic scenery, the Matterhorn is a sight to behold. Whether you choose to appreciate its stunning beauty from afar, or explore Zermatt’s high alpine meadows up close, this iconic peak will leave you in awe and provide memories that last a lifetime.

Hiking in Zermatt

Hiking around Zermatt is an unforgettable adventure. Surrounded by magnificent mountains, including the Matterhorn, and stunning alpine lakes, the landscape offers breathtaking views that are unlike anything else on Earth. Zermatt has plenty of hiking trails for all fitness levels. As you traverse rocky trails and meadows filled with wildflowers, you can stop to enjoy a meal and a nice glass of wine at any number of centuries-old mountain huts.

Hotel Albatros

Our home for the week is the charming Hotel Albatros, a 4-Star property located across the river from the town center, which creates a quiet and peaceful environment after a long day on the slopes. With impeccable service, a wonderful wellness-center and their sumptuous breakfast each day, we’re just close enough for all the action, but far enough away for some relaxation and quiet.

Swiss Cuisine

In America, we call it "food". In Switzerland, it's "cuisine". Every meal is a gastronomic experience to delight the palate. Enjoy a beautiful breakfast buffet every morning, with a selection of cereals, pastries, fresh fruits, meats and cheeses. Experience flavorful, gourmet, and locally-sourced lunches and dinners from some of Zermatt's finest restaurants. Discover delicious, healthy food to fuel your adventures!

Beyond the Trails

All our European experiences are unique and special. This means we want you to enjoy all the fabulous experiences Zermatt has to offer. From the food to the shops, and even an optional sightseeing Heli trip around the Matterhorn with a drop at the top of the Testa Grigia (weather permitting). We'll then hike to the top of the Klein Matterhorn and take the Glacier Express back down into town.
