As the Swiss pines and the larch trees radiate in yellow and gold down in the Zermatt valley, the Matterhorn and surrounding peaks are already beginning to glisten under a dusting of snow. Autumn has arrived – a season during which nature also has numerous culinary delights to offer.
And where could the views of these two wonderful contrasts be more spectacular than in the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise? As the sun disappears high above the mountain tops, look down over the fabulous display of autumn colours.
