How much time do I need for a visit to Matterhorn Glacier Paradise?

For the gondola ride alone, you have to reckon with about 45 minutes each way, having to change gondolas twice. You travel from Zermatt with the Matterhorn Express to Furi. From there, the next gondola will take you to Trockener Steg. The last gondola - the Matterhorn Glacier Ride - will then take you to the top of the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise.

On site, it depends on how long you want to enjoy the view (depending on the weather), whether you want to take advantage of the indoor activities (cinema, ice palace), or the gastronomic offer. You can easily spend 3 to 4 hours there.

Is there a specific date required to order a ticket?

When ordering, you must enter a specific date on our site, on which you would like to make the excursion. Thus, you are bound to this date and cannot change it flexibly.
