    Description

    The Schwarzsee tour in Zermatt is a Swiss mountainbiking classic. This tour takes you closer to the Matterhorn than any other.

    In Zermatt, take a small road uphill through the Winkelmatten district to Furi, then continue on in the direction of the Zmutt Glacier. Where the path turns off to the right toward the Schönbiel lodge, bear left to stay on the road to the Stafelalp and on to the Schwarzsee mountain station. On this stretch, the Matterhorn is particularly striking as it towers in the sky right above the path. This is a unique opportunity to see the impressive northern slope up-close. From Schwarzsee, there are various options for the descent. The best trail leads over the ridge to Hermetje. The official route leads over the ski slope to Furi and is not highly recommended. A worthwhile alternative is the descent on the ski slope until reaching the singletrack that turns off to the left toward Furi. This route is, however, very challenging and at points there is a risk of falling. It is only recommended for very good mountainbikers. From Furi, follow the trail through the hamlet of Zum See. Continue on the left bank of the Zmuttbach river back to Zermatt.

    Tipps:

    • Schwarzsee can also be reached by gondola lift. However, the ascent to the mountain station on the Stafelalp is so impressive that the rail transport robs the tour of one of its charms.
    • Ascend from the Schwarzsee mountain station in the direction of the Hörnlihütte and stop off at the Hörnlihütte for a snack – a first-class detour for fit and technical bikers.
