Zermatt

The resort town of Zermatt lies at the foot of the Matterhorn, one of the most distinctive mountains in the world. In winter Zermatt is dominated by skiers and is part of a ski region with over 186 miles (300 kilometres) of pistes. The town has a unique charm, protected by strict planning guidelines and a ban on cars; although this ban only relates to combustion-engine cars - battery powered vehicles are permitted and you are sure to see a variety of quirky electric cars and taxis in Zermatt.

With a permanent population of fewer than 6,000, Zermatt is predominately a tourist destination, attracting visitors all year round for skiing, hiking, climbing and sightseeing.

“Well organised as always, with a friendly and efficient Tour Manager. Swiss scenery is, of course, beautiful, even in poor weather. Some points for prospective travellers to note - as is inevitable with a group, there is a lot of waiting well in advance of train departures. Although all but 2 days are largely train travel, do not assume this is necessarily relaxing! There are some early starts and relatively late finishes, so not a great deal of free time on most days. Stops at various locations often either a little short or a little too long, according to what one might wish to see and do there in relation to the prevailing weather. All the hotels are within relatively short walking distance of the nearest station, but this includes cobbled streets and crossing roads. This becomes a bit of an effort with a suitcase (especially if weather is very wet, or rather hot). There is also a fair amount of walking (with a suitcase) in and between stations/platforms, as well as some upstairs train seating. Accommodation comfortable and food all good and plentiful. However, at Hotel Ambassador (Brig) especially, served late - more than half an hour after the scheduled meal start. This was a little annoying, given that we had already made our menu choices. All in all, an enjoyable trip, mostly scenic, with a few interesting inclusions such as the visit to the Helicopter Mountain Rescue Station. Crossing Lake Thun was a refreshing change from mountain railways!

“The train tour itself was amazing and memorable. I just wish our tour manager used any of the languages in their bio that would’ve helped the group or people that didn’t speak that language. I also wish we were informed if sending your luggage ahead was an option. Lastly, I would’ve preferred the hotel in some places to have been closer to the train station if we didn’t have a shuttle. But the trains were lovely.

“The experience was very good but the main food courses and waitress service in the 4* hotel was not what we expected. Katie Leigh our tour guide made up for that disappointment.

To get the right ratio between having everything you need and packing light for travelling can be tricky, but never fear, here’s our handy guide to packing the essentials for a winter holiday in Europe.
