Autumn fairy tales on two wheels

Mountain biking in zermatt

Clouds Clouds Clouds

Autumn is for hiking ... No, in autumn biking is king! From sunrise to sunset: higher uphill, steeper downhill, faster to the finish, nearer to the Matterhorn – passionate mountain bikers love to push themselves to the limit. The harsh, high-Alpine world around Zermatt seems just made for challenges on two wheels.

The raw facts about Matterhorn Paradise: more than 100 kilometres of trails at altitudes between 1400 and 3100 metres. Easy, intermediate and difficult routes for all skill levels. Twisting single trails, fast-paced freeride tracks, energy-sapping ascents and adrenaline-charged MTB descents.

Hobby cyclists can grab an e-bike. And thrill-seekers looking for a really amazing experience should try helibiking. As you can see, there’s something to make every biker’s heart beat faster in Zermatt.
