This winter hike from Furi to Stafel is best for early risers as the route is sunniest in the mornings.
In the morning, the sun shines down on Furi, bathing Zermatt’s majestic snowy landscape in a golden glow. The hike to Stafel follows an agricultural route heading steadily up into the mountains, from where you can enjoy views of the impressive north face of the Matterhorn and stop for a warming drink.
From Zmutt you can see the 74 m-high arch dam, retaining the waters of the Zmutt Glacier and the Zmuttbach mountain stream.
Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk.
*The additional reflector does not replace an avalanche beacon.
