Summer at 2222 m
Leaping, panting, running - but save some breath for laughing
Some choose to chase around a court after little yellow balls. Others leap onto mountain bikes, heading for Fluhalp, behind the Stellisee, where a cool beer is waiting. And those more intent on relaxation can stroll across the pastures - the marmots are curious creatures and so tame they’ll feed from your hand. But those who yearn for adventure among the eternal snows or between towering cliffs, will look forward to hiking with a guide to the Monte Rosa hut. Or traversing the great Gorner Gorge.
Hiking around Zermatt
Riffelalp lies smack in the middle of Zermatt’s hiking area. 400 km of trails await you. Short or long, easy or difficult, steep or flat – from here you have countless possibilities.
In early summer – from mid-June to end-July – the splendour of the wild flowers is most enchanting. Autumn offers clear days, white peaks and a magnificent play of colours.
The area around Klein Matterhorn is open mornings only. Riffelalp is not ideally located for this experience.
From Riffelalp the 9-hole golf course in Randa can be reached by Gornergrat railway and a short taxi transfer. We will arrange the transfer for you. Your golf bag will be waiting for you at our Welcome Parking in Täsch and your preferred tee-off times will be reserved.
