Two questions:

Planning trip in late August including some hut-to-hut days.

Is a hiking trip from Zermatt to Hornli Hut for one night, hiking next to Schonbiel hut the next night and back to Zermatt a reasonable hike? We are very active hikers.

I read about contacting the huts for reservations; are they open now? Do they answer the phone during the day?

Thanks for any help you can!

Hi nascarcave,

I'm not familiar with these hikes so I can't help you here.

The Hörnlihütte takes reservations as of June 1 ( eservation.html) and Schönbielhütte can be contacted for reservations (

We have more hikes listed on this page: rmatt/activities. Feel free to have a look.
