Zermatt is renowned for its iconic peaks, luxurious skiing, and being an exclusive Swiss city. This luxurious skiing town emits a unique charm. You’ll experience car-free streets with horse-drawn carriages and a remote escape this winter. Suit up for a day on the slope and cozy candle lit dinner in Switzerland.

What We’d Do
Skiing in the Swiss Alps

Venture onto the slopes around the iconic Matterhorn Mountain, enjoy the ski-in/ski-out access from your hotel or chalet. Elevate your experience with private ski instructors, heli-skiing adventures (helicopter journeys to remote, pristine slopes with untouched powder), and bespoke slope-side services.

Journey by Horse-Drawn Carriage

Zermatt cherishes its heritage, by striving to uphold its traditional way of life. The nostalgic allure of horse-drawn carriages offers a leisurely passage through streets, creating an idyllic and picturesque experience. Revel in the town’s beauty intimately and at your own unhurried pace. Given the town’s narrow streets and limited vehicle access, these carriages remain the most practical mode of transportation.

Indulge in Gourmet Delights

Savor Swiss and international delicacies at Zermatt’s collection of upscale restaurants. Against an alpine backdrop, select from 17 Michelin-Starred establishments and gourmet dining experiences. Some venues provide exclusive private dining rooms with menus crafted by renowned chefs, ensuring an unforgettable culinary journey.

Where We’d Stay
Mont Cervin Palace Zermatt

Built in 1852, Mont Cervin Palace stands as the oldest hotel in Zermatt, and the renovation has given this grande dame a gorgeous new aura. The 150 smartly updated accommodations include cozy chalet rooms with beamed ceilings, as well as family suites with fireplaces, kitchenettes, and whirlpools or saunas. Winter brings tobogganing, ice climbing, and 220 miles of piste play; the summer season offers glacier skiing, hiking, biking, and golf. Return for a steam bath and herbal massage, followed by Michelin-Starred Mediterranean fare at Ristorante Capri or perfectly prepared steak at Grill Le Cervin.

CERVO Mountain Resort

Nestled in the rugged village of Zermatt, the gateway to the Alps, CERVO Mountain Resort has everything an eco-conscious skier could want alpine-inspired rooms and suites stocked with sustainably made accessories, hearty locally sourced cuisine, and direct access to the slopes. Not to mention holistic spa therapies (try the Into the Wild CBD treatment) that harness the healing power of nature and a famous après-ski scene that starts promptly at 3 pm.
