This route starts on the Gornergrat (3,089 m). The first 1,500 metres takes you into the village and along the way, you’ll find mountain lakes, local animals (marmots and blacknose sheep) and top restaurants.
Before you set off, pause to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Gorner Glacier and the surrounding mountains.
You don’t need to be an experienced biker to do this route. From Gornergrat, a gravel path heads to Bodmen. It goes along the Gornergrat Bahn route and then through Alpine meadows. With a bit of luck, you may see a marmot or maybe one of the cute blacknose sheep.
At Bodmen, the path heads off right to the Mountain Lodge Ze Seewjinu and to the beautiful Grünsee. You then go via Gant and Findeln back to Sunnegga.
The viewing platform on the Gornergrat offers a unique view of Switzerland's highest peaks.
Zermatt is car-free. Private vehicles are permitted only as far as Täsch (5 km before Zermatt). The Täsch–Zermatt road is closed to the public.
Onward travel to Zermatt is either by private taxi or shuttle train. Trains depart every 20 minutes; the journey takes about 12 minutes, and ends at the Bahnhofplatz in Zermatt.
Täsch has car parks with both covered and open-air parking – e.g. at the Matterhorn Terminal or privately operated facilities.
