HI, Swiss team

Actually i am coming here in August. I am planning to buy swiss travel pass for eight days. For one day i looking for rental car in Gstaad due to shortage of time. I have two questions i am coming from Canada.

First can i drive with Canadian license with international permit and rules and regulations same like North America .

Second question is in Zermatt if i have to choose between Gornegrat and klein matterhorn whichone i should choose and which i can skip? Which is for better views? I am not doing hiking or any other things.

Yes, you'll have no problem renting with your CDN driver's license. Regulations are very similar here - don't speed as the fines are huge and they will ticket for for 1 or 2km/h over the limit. Maximum speed is really the maximum speed here. :)

Both mountains, Klein Matterhorn and Gornergrat offer great views of the Matterhorn in good weather.

Gornergrat gives you the postcard view everyone knows of.
