Night hike in Zermatt

Experience the imposing mountain scenery of Zermatt on the evening hike from Furi to Zum See and along the Gornerschlucht.

The beautiful mountain scenery all around Zermatt inspires many. And during the hike from Zermatt Youth Hostel into dusk, you’ll not only get different views of the famous Matterhorn, but also of other beautiful places with charm. Furi is characterised by the retreat of the glaciers. Where green meadows, light larch forests and rock formations can be found today, ice was once metres thick. The hike takes you to Furi via Moos and to the Dossen. Later, the 90-metre-high suspension bridge offers the best view of the thundering Gornerschlucht gorge. To the legendary Zum See via Bielti, we continue towards the Ricola herb garden, where we take a short break. From Blatten, the hike then crosses the bridge, leading along Gornerschlucht gorge back to Winkelmatten.
