Zermatt is of course well-known for the matterhorn. But like Saas-Fee, it is embedded in a panorama of famous four thousand metre peaks.
If you want to practice and improve your up or downhill running or hiking, Zermatt is a good choice to go. Zermatt is situated at an altitude of 1620m, so you also start high here. You will run/hike on a high altitude which helps you to acclimatize for maybe your next mountain race or hiking tour.
Zermatt is for everybody who enjoys trail running and hiking. Whether you are a beginner and want to get some trail running/hiking experience in the mountains and/or want to learn some mountain running/hiking techniques, or you are a more experienced runner/hiker who wants to get to know the Zermatt Valley and get some training or acclimatization for maybe your next trail running race or hiking tour. Zermatt is the place to be!
It offers a lot of different opportunities from running on more easy lower trails to steep technical mountain paths with lots of altitude gain.
