Other than the Swiss Half Fare Card and the Swiss Travel Pass, are there any other travel pass options that are specific to Zermatt and its environs? We’ll be doing four days’ worth of single-day hikes from our Zermatt hotel, and will therefore need to get ourselves up into the mountains from town for each of those day-trips.

P.S. We *love* myswissalps.com! Great site, and much appreciated!!

When will this be? Summer, autumn, winter, spring?

The peak pass is intended for non-skiing users of the uphill lifts in Zermatt:

We’ll be traveling in early September; and definitely hiking, not skiing. Sorry I didn’t think to mention that. Thank you for letting us know about the Peak Pass.

Hi Caroline679,

There is also the Adventure Card for the Zermatt and wider region. Have a read on our web page here for more details: www.myswissalps.com/ad venturecard

Hi Caroline

We were in Zermatt in September 2017 and were told by our hotel staff that there was a pass available for the chair lifts, cable cars, and Gornergratbahn cog train. As I remember it was pricy and you needed to stay 3 or more days to make it worthwhile. We just used our HFC instead. I don’t know if it was the Adventure Card or not. I would suggest you contact you Zermatt hotel Concierge to check on what’s available and the price. Mark

Let's face it - one doesn't actually have to use uphill transport at all if that is one's choice. You can hike from Zermatt village. As such it might be cheaper to get the occasional normal ticket if only using uphill lifts once or twice
