In the early morning, the Metro Alpin takes you up to the Mittelallalin intermediate station (3200m) from where you first cross the Hohlaub glacier before starting with the ascent to the Adlerpass (3789m). After a fairly flat section you will have to master a steep slope just before the past. The long descent to Zermatt is a part of the famous "Haute Route", a ski tour of several days between Saas-Fee and Chamonix. After managing the first steep part of the descent, the slope becomes flatter while the Matterhorn seems to grow majestically in the sky.

​Once arrived in Zermatt, the taxi will pick us up and bring us back to Saas-Fee. An incredible trip to Switzerland's most famous ski resort ends.

Start: 8.15 a.m.
