Itinerary

We meet in Randa, a picturesque village on the train route to Zermatt, at 2.30 pm, marking the start of our adventure. We ascend the rugged path to the Europa Hut, perched at an elevation of over 2260 meters. Here, amidst the stunning panorama of the Swiss Alps, we'll spend our evening in a cozy mountain hut.
Our adventure continues as we cross the Charles Kuonen Suspension Bridge, looking at the engineering marvel that spans 494 meters, making it the longest pedestrian suspension bridge in the Alps. Our path, the Europaweg trail, leads us up to a secluded mountain hut at 2700 meters. Surrounded by glaciers and towering peaks, the enviroment truly embodies the spirit of hiking in Switzerland.
We venture closer to the iconic Matterhorn, with each step on the trail bringing new vistas and shared wonders. Our stop at the ZeSeewjinu mountain hut offers us unforgettable views of the Matterhorn, especially as we relax on the terrace, savoring wine or beer together.
Our final day's trek takes us along the captivating Five Lakes trail, where the Matterhorn's reflection in the lakes offers a serene backdrop for reflection and shared memories. Together, we descend to Zermatt, ready to catch the train back to Geneva, Zurich, or Milan by 6pm, carrying with us the memories of the best hiking experiences in Switzerland.
