Glacier trekking - Gorner glacier

Glacier trekking on the Gorner glacier

Experience the fascination of glaciers. The ZERMATTERS mountain guide also provides a lot of background knowledge on geology and glaciology.

If you want to tackle the second largest glacier in the Alpine region, then put on your crampons and discover a truly unique world: there is always a cool wind up here and the smell of the freezing cold is omnipresent. Listen to the constant creaking, cracking, and rumbling coming from inside the ice giant.

From Rotenboden we walk on a natural path down to the Gorner glacier, via this glacier we walk back to Furi. On this very multifaceted hike on unfamiliar terrain (ice & snow) you will experience the mountain world around Zermatt from a different perspective.
