Heliboarding

The crowning adventure

To feel for once like a king or a queen? Heliboarding in Zermatt makes it possible. In small groups, it's a breathtaking helicopter ride up the mountain at royal heights up to 4,000 meters above sea level. The flight goes very close to the most beautiful mountain in the Swiss Alps, the Matterhorn.
Once at the summit, you will find a snowy mountain range at your feet.

The culmination of the experience, however, is the descent. On pristine, feather-light powder snow and firn over high-alpine glaciers in the midst of a fascinating 4000-meter backdrop. Freeriding - for many it is the supreme discipline of the Alps. Falling down steep slopes and making your tracks in the finest powder snow is a feeling that you must have experienced yourself. Heliboarding in Zermatt makes two of your dreams come true.

Simply unforgettable!
