Tour of the Matterhorn South

  • Complete the south leg of the long distance trek around the iconic Matterhorn
  • Take on two glacier crossings in the hands of a knowledgeable UIAGM guide
  • Share stories with fellow walkers in authentic mountain hotels and huts
  • Enjoy Swiss and Italian specialties like potato roesti and La Fontina cheese
  • Finish in glamorous Zermatt, Europe's famous outdoor capital
Walk the south section of the Tour of the Matterhorn through Switzerland and Italy on this self-guided inn to inn trek. This demanding long–distance hike circumnavigates the famous peak, offering superb mountain views, as well as an insight into the two distinct regions that surround it, the Mattertal and the Aosta Valley. This is a tough and adventurous trek, but for fans of the Alps, it could not be more rewarding. Hike through alpine meadows, on rocky paths, suspension bridges and glaciers, and for added peace of mind, you will have the full support of a qualified local guide for the two glacier crossings. Relax at the end of the day in mountain hotels and huts, and experience the camaraderie that an Alpine trek has to offer. Chat to walkers from all over the world over a beer, swapping stories and advice from the trail.
