Time-Lapse Tuesday: Zermatt in Switzerland

January 12, 2016 G Adventures

For snow-covered winter escapes, look no further than Zermatt in Switzerland. Nestled in the Swiss Alps, this town is a must for winter sports fans. Skiing and snowboarding is guaranteed 365 days a year. Not to mention, you’re only steps away from a hike through breathtaking alpine scenery.

Need to relax after those outdoor excursions? Travellers and locals alike enjoy kicking back and soaking up the views of the Matterhorn from the comfort of an outdoor spa.

Zermatt is also famed for its eco-friendliness. With only electric cars permitted on the roads, many people get around simply by walking, and businesses in the town are committed to self-sustaining practices. Just in case you needed another reason to go.
