Experience the grandeur of the iconic Matterhorn on an unforgettable 7-day hiking adventure. The Matterhorn Trek takes you on a journey through the stunning landscapes of Zermatt, one of the most popular mountaineering destinations in the world.

The trek offers breathtaking views of the Matterhorn from various angles. As you hike from green valleys to barren rocky landscapes, you’ll witness the panoramic views of the surrounding 4,000m peaks, glaciers, and snowmelt water streams.

The itinerary is designed to showcase the best of the region, with a mix of mountain huts and hotels in idyllic locations offering great cuisine, and accommodation options ranging from dormitories to private rooms (for which you must book enough in advance).

As you trek from the green valleys to the barren rocky landscapes, you will be amazed by the panoramic views of the surrounding 4000m peaks, glaciers, and white streams of snowmelt water. Along the way, you will hike past pastures, meet some cows, and at the end of each day, relax in a mountain hotel or a hut, from which you can witness some unforgettable sunsets (and sunrises, if you wake up early enough).

At Hut to Hut Hiking Switzerland, we take care of all the logistics for you. From providing a detailed itinerary booklet and GPS routes to booking all the accommodations, our aim is to make your trip as smooth as possible. All you need to do is relax and soak in the stunning scenery.
