riverboat 2019 Cruise

River Boat Cruise with Pre Cruise Land Tour 
Zermatt July 24, 2019 - Optional Tours

1. World Famous Matterhorn Glacier Paradise - Morning Departure

  • The greatest highlight of all is probably the 360-degree viewing platform – the highest in the Alps. It gives a view over 38 four-thousand-metre peaks and 14 glaciers of the Swiss, Italian and French Alps. Feel free to count them.

  • If you like ice sculpture, you must include a visit to the underground Glacier Palace, the highest of its kind anywhere in the world. Film buffs can look forward to some riveting footage from the Alpine world in the Cinema Lounge in the Breithorn tunnel. Definitely worth keeping in mind for a rainy day.

  • The modern Matterhorn glacier paradise restaurant is the perfect place for lovers of good food. Specialities of the Valais region, an open-view kitchen and panoramic windows guarantee all-round enjoyment.

  • And in the Peak Shop next door you can buy souvenirs of the region for your nearest and dearest.

  • Snow-tubing run at 3,883 m promises high thrills. The summit station of Matterhorn glacier paradise offers the activity all summer. Snow-tubes available free of charge at the peak.

  • Interpreters will be with you for the journey to the Peak, then you are on your own to enjoy your time.
