Zermatt Ski Holidays

Beautiful car-free streets, exceptional luxury hotels, pristine pistes spread across the Swiss-Italian border, soaring views of the Matterhorn – need we say more? Get ready to fall under Zermatt’s spell as you discover one of the world’s most captivating resorts. 

Explore the slopes

Linked with the Italian resort of Cervinia, Zermatt boasts a vast 360km ski area with everything from gently undulating beginner slopes to demanding black runs and some incredible off-piste terrain.

There is a choice of beginner areas located high up on the mountain. This ensures not only great snow conditions but allows groups of mixed ability skiers to meet up easily for lunch at one of the great mountain restaurants.  There is also a fantastic choice of ski schools, many of which are British-run.

Intermediates can explore to their hearts’ content, even taking a day to ski over to Italy for lunch. Tear up long, leg-burning reds, dabble in some off-piste (with a guide) and head up to the ski area’s highest point at a staggering 3899m to enjoy the stunning panoramic views.

Advanced skiers and riders will find a wealth of fantastic off-piste and itinerary runs to challenge them. Why not try a heli-skiing experience to make the most of the incredible terrain in the shadow of the mighty Matterhorn? 

Enjoy the resort

Beautiful, picture-perfect, chocolate-box… There aren’t words to adequately describe the alpine charm of this sensational resort. Zermatt’s narrow pedestrianised streets are lined with rustic timber chalets, historic churches and inviting shops and eateries. The perfect meeting point of Swiss tradition and modern luxury.

The restaurants in Zermatt are truly outstanding, whether you’re grabbing a delicious lunch on the mountain or enjoying a relaxed evening meal in town. There’s an eclectic flavour to the gourmet offerings, with everything from Swiss specialities to innovative seafood dishes on the menu. The proximity to the Italian border means hearty dishes like pasta and pizza also feature highly.  

Après-ski in Zermatt is certainly on the lively side, with live music, fun crowds and no end of venues. Go for a stylish wine bar, a low-key pub or something more traditional where you might even see staff wearing lederhosen.

Après-Ski in Zermatt

For fun on the slopes, check out Blatten on your last run down from Furi. Tucked away in a quiet spot, the place comes alive with skiers basking in early evening sunshine and enyoying a well deserved beer. If you have any non-skiers in your group they can walk here easily along the winter hiking paths.

With over seventy restaurants offering a range of gastronomic delights, and numerous cafés and bars to choose from, Zermatt is a fantastic resort by night. There is a lively après-ski scene with popular choices being the British run North Wall Bar and the undisputed hotspot of Zermatt is Hotel de la Post, which has a number of different themed bars and a club.

Dining in Zermatt

There is certainly no shortage of dining options in Zermatt and you'll find everything from seafood to traditional Swiss cuisine, as well as plenty of Italian favourites. 

All of our chosen properties offer excellent meals but if you venture in to town you're sure to find something that takes your fancy. The Grill Restaurant Stockhorn is a popular choice serving meat dishes from the wood fire as well as regional dishes like fondue. The Schäferstube Restaurant is also highly recommended: the family rears the meat for the lamb dishes served in the restaurant and it's a popular spot so booking is essential.

Activities in Zermatt

Aside from fantastic skiing there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy in Zermatt. The town has its own open air ice rink and you can try a host of other activities including ice climbing, snowshoeing, paragliding and toboganning. Or for a unique experience, visit the Igloo Village and have a drink in the igloor bar. You can even arrange to stay overnight if you're brave enough!

Reviews of Zermatt

Jennifer Leckie


It was a fabulous hotel, facilities and staff were absolutely 5 star.

Fizz Bolton


We had a fantastic time in Zermatt - the hotel is fabulous, thank you for organising it; we'd be keen to return and in fact, may well be back before the end of the season with if we can organise ourselves. As you'd said, it's amazing food - we ended up eating there every night, it was delicious but not too heavy.

Harry James


From the moment we started the booking, the level of service was 5 star. When we thought our holiday would be cancelled, Karen and the team were amazing and manged to find an alternative at extremely short notice.
