We love to be active when we travel and one of our favourite family destinations for hiking, sightseeing and eating is Zermatt, Switzerland. When you visit Zermatt, be sure to include these two hikes for the stunning scenery and delicious restaurants along the way.
Zermatt to Findeln
The first hike is from Zermatt to Findeln. It is possible to take an underground funicular from Zermatt to Sunnegga Paradise and hike down to Findeln, but we prefer to hike up especially when we are heading to Chez Vrony. Chez Vrony is located at 2,100 m with stunning views of the Matterhorn. The outdoor terrace with Matterhorn views entice a stop, and the food and drinks make it easy to hang around and plan a return trip. Seriously, we will hike all day if the destination is Chez Vrony.
The next delicious destination is Zum See, located below the chairlift between Zermatt and Furi. It is possible to hike up to Zum See or take the chairlift to Furi and hike down. While Chez Vrony was a cheese fondue, beer and antipasti stop for us; Zum See was more about wine and dessert – at least for the adults.
