Zermatt and Saas-Fee offer superb walking in the shadow of the Matterhorn. Both villages have a full range of facilities and there is a plenty of accommodation throughout the Mattertal and Saastal. There is ample opportunity to make use of Switzerland's an excellent public transport infrastructure to give access to walks. Distance, walking time, ascent, descent and difficulty are shown for each route, and the route description is supported by clear mapping. An appendix of contacts list sources of information, helpful websites and apps, and there is a useful English-German glossary.
