Hi buckley! Although Zermatt isn't exactly on the route to Brig (from either the north, west or east), it's definitely worth spending a night there. It takes a 40 minute drive from Visp in the Rhone valley to Täsch near Zermatt, where you have to park your car
and get on board of the train, as Zermatt is car free. This is a quick and easy transfer though.
Zermatt is considered to be one of the most popular resorts in Switzerland and offers spectacular scenery. If you have enough time, you may consider getting up to one of the many viewing points around Zermatt. The Gornergrat
is a great example. If you'd like to book a hotel there for a night, you can take a look at the hotel page
