Zermatt: An MTB Utopia with Endless Trails

Paradise awaits with 100+ km of trails between altitudes of 1,400 to 3,100 m.

Description

Behold a mountain biking paradise surrounded by 30 mountain peaks over 4,000 m and trails with all levels of difficulty! Whether you’re a beginner or advanced rider, there is something for everyone in this utopia of MTB trails.

More into descents rather than climbs? There’s a series of railways, cable cars and lifts to help you and your bike get around easily. Check out the Zermatt Bike Pass for unlimited travel to Sunnegga/Rothorn, Gornergrat, and Schwarzsee for up to a week.

If you’re looking for a family-friendly trail or simply a relaxing day outing, Schwarzsee features breathtaking scenery as well as numerous attractions and restaurants to stop along the way for a quick rest.

The Bike-Tour Kelle trail is especially interesting for advanced riders. It’s a challenging route with steep slopes and a few serpentines and also features stunning views!
