What people say

"The most popular hike in the Sunnegga area is the 5 Lakes Walk, which starts at the top of the Zermatt Blauherd gondola and ends at Sunnegga. It visits five lakes along the way. It's the longest hike in this itinerary at 9.8 km, about 3 hours+ with kids. It's not particularly difficult as it's mostly downhill, but probably better for older kids that can go the distance. "
"In the summer, Zermatt transforms into a hiker's paradise with numerous trails catering to various fitness levels. Hike to scenic spots like Hörnli Hut, the base camp for climbing the Matterhorn, or explore the Five Lakes Walk for stunning alpine views."
