Another one for TrailblazerGirl’s bucket list… hike the Matterhorn! With more than 400 km of marked hiking and walking trails in and around the surrounding towns of Zermatt, Täsch and Randa, the Matterhorn area is truly one of the world’s great destinations for hikers. Don’t worry about the altitudes either because there are mountain railways that can take you up to altitudes of 3,000 meters and then you can hike down from there. And remember, after a day of hiking on these mountains, you’ve earned the right to eat all the fondue you can.
