Zermatt’s relaxing spas, top restaurants, stunning views and great activities mean there are plenty of great things to do in Zermatt, even for non-skiers who still fancy a winter holiday in Switzerland.
A few weeks ago, I headed over to Switzerland with Jet2. From Geneva, we travelled up to Zermatt – Europe’s highest ski resort. Not only is it a stunning snowy village, it also sits in the shadow of one of the world’s most photographed mountains – the Matterhorn. Yes this is the famous mountain that inspired both the triangular shape and the logo for Toblerone!
With 200km of pistes, plus a chance to ski from Italy to Switzerland (yes, the border is right there), it’s no wonder Zermatt is one of the most popular ski resorts in Europe.
While the region boasts some of the most scenic skiing around, what should you do if you weren’t born zipping down the slopes? What if you’re more of a bambi on ice than a pro? Is it possible to go on a ski trip and not ski… but still have a great time?
