Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

1. Zermatt: Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car Ticket

Secure your ticket to take a trip on the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Cable Car. Ascend to Europe's highest mountain station and travel to Trockener Steg to ride by heated cable car across the Theodul Glacier. Start your journey at the Zermatt-Matterhorn valley station. Within 45 minutes, reach Europe’s highest mountain station at 12,740 ft (3,883 meters) above sea level - the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. First, travel in comfort in an 8-seat gondola of the Matterhorn Express on your way to Trockerner Steg. Pass lush green meadows, old Valais hamlets, and enchanting forests before the landscape changes to one with impressive moraines and stones polished by ice and glaciers.  At Trockener Steg, hop into the highest 3S cable car transporting you up to the peak. Take in spectacular views through the panoramic windows and enjoy the heated seats while crossing the Theodul Glacier. Once you reach the summit, visit the viewing platform and marvel at 38 alpine giants of the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps as well as 14 glaciers. At the cinema lounge, enjoy short movies about mountaineering, the local fauna and flora, the lift facilities, and ice and snow. Or explore the highest ice palace in the world and admire handmade sculptures in the eternal ice. Before you leave the magical fairytale behind, try regional specialties at the restaurant or purchase Matterhorn souvenirs.

Wonderful and unforgettable experience. A splendid view with a radiant weather which allowed us to have an exceptional panorama. The excursion is certainly expensive but it is definitely worth it. Don't hesitate to reserve your places if the weather is nice.

A surprisingly easy trip, loved the new cable car system, this is an experience not to be missed. Just prepare for the cold, wear sensible shoes, clothing and enjoy one of the wonders of the world.

Beautiful cable car, they changed the voucher into a ticket at the same ordinary ticket office, beautiful crystal rides, highly recommended!
