The Mattherhorn and the Mont Rose

The Matterhorn, between Switzerland and Italy

The Matterhorn (Cervin in French, Cervinio in Italian) is one of the world's most famous mountains and is located between the Swiss Canton of Wallis and the Aosta Valley in Italy. Its 4477m peak looks down into Zermatt in Canton Wallis and Breuil Cervinia in the Aosta Valley.

Zermatt, the imperial crown

More than 20 peaks above 4000m surround Zermatt. The domain is a true skier's dream, with more than 313 km of pistes between Zermatt and Breuil Cervinia.

Tour the Mont-Rose Massif effortlessly

The Mont Rose Massif stands at its tallest at an elevation of 4634m (the Dufour Spitze) and is accessible from Zermatt or Gressoney in the Aosta Valley in Italy. The Aosta Valley is the ideal starting point for scenic yet undemanding tours of the surrounding glaciers and allows you access to the border, where you will find Europe's highest refuge, the Margherita, at 4554m.

Wallis includes the largest number of peaks above the 4000m mark (41 out of a total of 84 for the entire Alpine Arc).
