Discover Alpine marvels up close. It couldn’t be easier – or more impressive – than on the Furi suspension bridge path near Zermatt, where you enter a world shaped by the Gorner Glacier. The highlight is the suspension bridge across Gorner Gorge. Anyone brave enough to pause on it and risk a glance down into the roaring ravine will get a clear sense of the raw power of nature for a few moments.

Route: Furi - suspension bridge - fire pit - glacier garden - Furi 
Best time of year: June – October

At the Dossen glacier garden you will see glacial potholes formed over 4000 years ago, mysterious rock caverns and more besides. It’s also the perfect place to go on a tour of discovery or simply enjoy a barbecue with your family at one of the fire pits. Walk through the shady Alpine forest, past barbecue spots and the playground with its picnic area. Information panels explain how the glacial potholes, rock formations, caves and signs of glacial polish came to be. In short: there is plenty of variety and fun to enjoy here.
