Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

1. Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

Start your journey at the Zermatt-Matterhorn valley station. Within 45 minutes, reach Europe’s highest mountain station at 12,740 ft (3,883 meters) above sea level - the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. First, travel in comfort in an 8-seat gondola of the Matterhorn Express on your way to Trockerner Steg. Pass lush green meadows, old Valais hamlets, and enchanting forests before the landscape changes to one with impressive moraines and stones polished by ice and glaciers.  At Trockener Steg, hop into the highest 3S cable car transporting you up to the peak. Take in spectacular views through the panoramic windows and enjoy the heated seats while crossing the Theodul Glacier. Once you reach the summit, visit the viewing platform and marvel at 38 alpine giants of the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps as well as 14 glaciers. At the cinema lounge, enjoy short movies about mountaineering, the local fauna and flora, the lift facilities, and ice and snow. Or explore the highest ice palace in the world and admire handmade sculptures in the eternal ice. Before you leave the magical fairytale behind, try regional specialties at the restaurant or purchase Matterhorn souvenirs.

The highlight of our holiday (and we were away for 15 weeks) The scenery just takes your breath away on the ride up. The view at the panoramic viewing station is equally awe inspiring and then the ice sculptures inside the ice palace are just beautiful

Fantastic experience Right up to the glaciers. Lots of hiking trails and bike routes. A view you will never forget. Small cozy places where you can buy food and drink.

Very smooth redemption process! Just show the QR to the staff at the ticket booth outside the cable car station and you will get your ticket within minutes.

What a wonderful way to see the mountains and glaciers.The trip was smooth and the sites were fantastic well worth the price of the ticket

Ticket only that you exchange at the ticket office. Ideally you need clear weather to make the trip worth it as it’s expensive.
