Greetings hike enthusiasts!


If you came to Switzerland to see huge mountains, to hike in beautiful places and take pictures of the Matterhorn with Toblerones in hand, this is the perfect event for you! We invite you to join us on our amazing weekend trip to Zermatt. You will have the choice of three hikes during the weekend in one of the most beautiful regions of Switzerland (be sure to be comfortable hiking for a few hours  and to bring warm clothes as recently the weather has been getting a lot colder).


As well, you will enjoy a delicious meal on Saturday night before having the option to hang out at a bar (or even a club ) in town for the motivated ones. Sunday will also feature the occasion to visit an impressive suspension bridge, or to just chill in the beautiful car-free town of Zermatt. You will have the chance to experience a pristine environment that only the luckiest can brag about.
