Switzerland’s most famous resort holds legendary status, with scenic slopes that flow into Italy. And if you dream of heli-skiing and untracked off-piste, this is arguably the best place in Europe.

Surrounded by 4,000-metre peaks, snow-sure slopes sweep beneath the glacier and iconic Matterhorn, giving breathtaking views as you carve above the tree line. As of winter 2023/24 there are two ways to cross into Italy; either ski down the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise to Cervinia or witness the rugged panoramic view of the Alps from the brand new Matterhorn Express cable car - just don't miss the last lift back - the taxi ride is expensive!

The resort’s stylish hotels and lounge bars fringe the old town, where horse-drawn sleighs jingle down narrow lanes. A mix of old and new, Zermatt is a prosperous place, with more designer boutiques and Michelin stars than most - for a special meal, try the local specialities at Le Mazot.

A year-round resort, Zermatt’s non-ski activities are particularly good, with the Alpine museum and scenic helicopter flights top of our list. To extend your Zermatt ski holiday, the famous Glacier Express train travels directly to St Moritz - an unforgettable combination for a Glacier Express Ski Safari.

"Seeing the Matterhorn on a clear day has to be one of the most spectacular sights in Switzerland. And with the historic old town, Zermatt is one of the most traditional Swiss resorts you’ll find."
