TOUR 3: Sils Maria and Zermatt

«        »

Tour Description:

Take in the Matterhorn and village of Zermatt at its base, nestled in the Pennine Alps—all in the height of Switzerland’s sunniest season. You’ll go from valleys flush with spectacular wildflowers to cool glacier-coated mountain tops that boast awe-inspiring vistas.

The first village where we base, Sils Maria, is a perfect location to hike the Bernina Range.  The Upper Engadine Valley is at 6000 feet with towering peaks on both sides.  The hike to the Coaz Hut is one of the favorite hikes among our guests.  From the hut you have an amazing view of Piz Roseg and Piz Palü.  

Another highlight is we take the Glacier Express Train from San Moritz to Zermatt first class.

Tour Cost:

$4,950; single supplement: $290

Highlights – Sils Maria: The Upper Engadine Valley where Sils Maria is located is protected by high mountain ranges on all sides and is famous for its sunny climate, beautiful landscapes and hiking and climbing. The Bernina Range (where we hike) is a mountain range in the Alps of eastern Switzerland and northern Italy. It is considered to be part of the Rhaetian Alps within the Central Eastern Alps. It is one of the highest ranges of the Alps, covered with many glaciers. Piz Bernina(4,049 m (13,284 ft)), its highest peak, is the most easterly four thousand-metre peak in the Alps. The peak in the range which sees the most ascents is Piz Palü.
