Hiking in the winter

Schloss Zermatt Istock 915372004

Snowshoeing in winter can take you to undiscovered hamlets and sun-drenched terraces with views of Zermatt, Täsch and Randa. Here are three of our favourite winter hikes.

Top three winter hikes

1. AHV Trail - Winkelmatten Playground - Return (about 1.5 hours)

This is a beautiful circular trail around Zermatt. The Sunnegga lift brings you up to Riedweg where you then follow a tranquil uphill path. When you arrive in Winkelmatten, depending on how you feel, return to the hotel by E-bus or on foot.

2. Rotenboden - Igloo Village - Riffelberg

Take the Gornergrat train up to Rotenboden. From there, the walk all the way to the igloo village is a highlight for the whole family. If you’re hungry there are delicious fondues in the rustic igloo village. After that, it's on to Riffelberg.
Tip for families: take a toboggan with you for the children.

3. Tuftern (about 1-1.5 hours)

Close by, and yet far enough from the hustle and bustle. The funicular railway brings you conveniently to Sunnegga. From there, a beautiful well-prepared winter hiking trail leads towards Tuftern. When you arrive at Tuftern you can stop for a small snack but the restaurant is very basic. A nearby feeding trough will attract the deer and chamois towards the end of the afternoon.
Tip for families: again, take the toboggan with you. This will give the little ones a break along the hike.
