Take a journey through the Ossola Valley as it winds its way gracefully up towards the Alps and away from Lake Maggiore, leading you to the famous Simplon Pass. At the highest point of the pass, the Belvedere Viewpoint, there are unbeatable 360 degree panoramic views of the Swiss and Italian Alps.
Travel onwards and upwards through Brig (with its Stockalkper Castle), Visp and along the Matter Valley leading you further into the heart of the Alps. At Taesch you will take the rack and pinion railway up to Zermatt itself. Situated at 5,315 ft above sea level, Zermatt is surrounded by some of the most famous peaks in the Alps including the Matterhorn, the Monte Rosa and the Gornergrat. Zermatt is the most picturesque of the Alpine villages and is completely pedestrianised. You can enjoy your free time exploring and basking in the dramatic splendour of the Matterhorn. By the end of the day, enjoy the sun setting on the surrounding mountains as you make your way home.
