Goodmorning, just woke in beautiful Neuchatel, will be in Zermatt today & tomorrow before taking the GEx. Talking to someone who lives in Switzerland, they indicated that taking a helicopter ride by "Zermatt Air" is well worth the experience? We would appreciate any feedback by anyone with this experance. Also are any discounts avaliable that you know of?

Sorry Peter,

I have taken scenic helicopter rides but not in Switzerland - they are usually quite good if it is in your budget! I haven't heard of any discounts for these trips.

Hi Peterzier,

I think you're referring to "Air Zermatt". They're a well-known rescue and helicopter company. More information about their tourist flights can be found here. With good weather this will for sure be a memorable activity! Enjoy your stay!

We did this three years ago and yes, yes, yes, it is well worth it. Make sure as others have said the weather is good. We took the longer of the two flights. I have forgotten...maybe 20-25 minutes.
