Full description

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.

Julio was awesome. He knows what he is doing and has the experience to jump in any type of safe condition. My only slight issue was the lack of knowledge ahead of time that I would have to buy a ticket to go to the top of Rothhorn mountain. Fortunately I had my SwissPass with me so I got a discount but you should figure on adding at least 26 CHF and 40 CHF for thr video. Would definitely recommend this!

Must visit in Zermatt! I have taken cable cars to mountain tops in other places, but the views this cable car has is exceptional. We hopped on and off at different points and hiked around the Matterhorn glacier hike route. This hike was out of the world. The picture we’ve taken is something we’ll treasure for the rest of our lives. Overall a brilliant experience and something every traveller must do in Zermatt.
