A winter hike to Fluhalp — Matterhorn (almost) always in view



This article comes from travelmemo.com and is the sole property of its author

The hike from the stylish Blue Lounge to the Fluhalp is easy peasy. It takes you along a glacial moraine high above Zermatt on an ever so slight gradient through the alpine mountain landscape. But even those scant few meters of altitude differential pay off, because the view… Yes, it simply is magic — both there and back again.

Starting point Blue Lounge

You can reach the Blue Lounge from different points of the compass by taking the Sunnegga-, Gant-, Patrullarve- or Blauherd-Rothorn Paradise railways. The Blue Lounge is distinguished not only by its elegant interior but also, as is true of so much in Zermatt, by its spectacular views of the Matterhorn.
