Know More about this tour

Enjoy an incomparable experience at Europe’s highest mountain cableway station at an altitude of 12,739 feet (3,882 meters).

With your single return ticket, catch the green-and-yellow electric bus from the outskirts of Zermatt to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise valley base station.

Here, ride the highest mountain cableway in Europe up to this scenic area, ascending in an 8-seater gondola on the newly extended Matterhorn Express, which offers direct travel from Zermatt via Furi to Trockener Steg and Schwarzsee without changes.

After a journey of roughly 45 minutes, arrive at the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise at 12,739 feet (3,882 meters), and soak up the awesome mountain scenery, with its glaciers and year-round snow.

Once here, enjoy a range of exciting experiences and attractions, from visiting the 360-degree viewing platform, cinema lounge, and underground Glacier Palace to snow tubing, all included in your entrance ticket.

Highest Viewing Platform in the Alps
Ascend further to the highest observation platform in the Alps. Take the lift to the summit built into the rock, and visit the observation deck to marvel at the 360-degree panoramas. The spectacular views make an indelible impression on all who experience them, and encompass 38 towering Alpine peaks, including the 13,123-foot (4,000-meter) peaks of the French, Italian, and Swiss Alps, and the mighty Jungfrau in all its splendor.

The Glacier Palace
Pay a visit to the fascinating Glacier Palace, the highest of its kind in the world. Carved beneath the surface of the glacier, this stunning ice complex has been recently redesigned to give it a new look.

Ride an elevator down to 49 feet (15 meters) below the glacier surface and take in the wonder of the natural world that awaits, from bizarre ice formations and glittering ice crystals to impressive ice sculptures, a walk-through crevasse, and a thrilling ice slide — an experience that will make any heart beat faster.

Enjoy breaks on the hide-covered seats to fully take in the magical setting at your leisure. There’s even an event room here that offers a space for unique gatherings.

Matterhorn Glacier Paradise Restaurant: the highest restaurant built to the low-energy MINERGIE-P® standard
Enjoy your choice of authentic Swiss dishes, together with an Indian menu in summer — at the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise restaurant (own expense), or spend the night at the mountaineers’ hostel (own expense).

Sustainability, energy-efficiency, and comfort are paramount here, which is why the restaurant has gained MINERGIE-P® certification: the highest building in the world constructed to this standard.

  • One of the highlights of our trip! Agree with others to bring warm clothes, hat and mittens. Very chill and windy at top.

  • This was a self guided tour, you can pretty much start it whenever the gondolas are running. After checking in with the ticket office (just present your voucher), get your lift ticket (hold on to it for the entire day), you take 3 gondolas to the top. Walk inside the glacier and see the ice carvings

  • Una hermosa experiencia, los paisajes maravillosos y el traslado en funicular una experiencia aparte.

  • It was an interesting experience taking this cable car. It's not really pretty at the top as it is above the tree line, and there is no vegetation, I thought that it resembled a quarry. Lots of hiking opportunities, and would be good for biking up there too. Didn't really blow me away if I'm honest. Not the most beautiful place in the world. I didn't think that the Matterhorn looked any more spectacular from up there. I preferred Monte Blanc - Chamonix.

  • This is an experience not to be missed - approx. 45 mins on one continuous cable car - slowly getting higher and higher until you are at the last section where you get one one large cable car and travel the last section finishing inside the mountain. Be prepared ! No matter what the weather is at the beginning of this trip - its COLD at the top. The tube ride was fun and watching everyone skiing was great too. The views are amazing and a once in a lifetime trip. A point of note - you have to pay to use the bathroom up the top restaurant - tip - use the next station stop going down - their bathroom is free
    Another wonderful thing is that you can get off at any point either up or down and get out of the cable car and appreciate the view at that point.

  • A wonderful day up in the mountains - truly amazing to go all the way to the top - outstanding experience

  • Your heart will soar when you go up into the mountains - I don't know what to say other than absolutely amazing and breathtakingly beautiful- highly recommend this

  • The trip up the mountain itself was incredible! Absolutely worth the cost and includes sights that are worth the trip. The inclusions in the ticket were very nice, once we got up to the top everything was based on that one ticket and it was very easy to enter and exit each of the activities. The ice castle inside the glacier was breathtaking and worth the walk down. The restaurant can become very crowded but was nice to warm up in after being outside in the cold.

    The instructions on how to access the tickets was definitely lacking. We were very confused and unsure how to access our tickets. Starting in Zermatt, you take the green line bus which picks up at many stops around town. You can get on at any point and ride it to the end of the line Matterhorn Glacier paradise. At that point you must wait in line at the ticket window and present your voucher. Once we did that we were handed tickets that we used for both the gondolas and the attractions at the top of the mountain. You need only one ticket for all of it so make sure to hang on to that ticket. You ride in small gondolas all the way without getting out or changing until you reach the last stop before Glacier Paradise Trockener Steg at which you will change into a large gondola to ride to Glacier Paradise. This is all included in that one ticket. The same ticket will give you access to come back down including the green line bus back to town.

    All in all a wonderful experience, just wish the instructions had been more clear on how to access it. I would still recommend though!

  • Being inside a glacier was unbelievable. The ice sculptures were fantastic. Didn't take the shortcut slide. I was afraid I wouldn't come out on the other end....LOL It was well worth the price.

  • I am totally satisfied and happy with Viator's recommendation. This was one of the best trip we had. We reached there morning but the weather was not so good and not able to see Mattherhorn. We waited for about one hour to have a clear sky and finally it worth every single moment. Matterhorn was simple amazing and so did other mountains too. The scenery was perfect and it was snowing too and we had so much fun.
