A weekend at the Matterhorn
#making🇨🇭postcards The lovely @nicolehunziker has always been the queen Matterhorn. As we started getting to know each other we decided to do a Toblerone mountain meetup in 2015 with a crew of photographers. Thanks to @myswitzerland and @zermatt.matterhorn this happened last weekend!
The most photographed mountain in the world.
And what did we encounter first?! Goats, smelling like old cheese and mountain meadows.
Then we made our way up to the Fluhalp where we would stay our first night.
These window views...
We got up at 6am to be ready to hike to the Stellisee before sunrise.
Then we got a special delivery - a foldable kayak. We believe we were the first to ride a kayak up there on the high alpine lake.
After the kayak ride we made our way down to the valley of Zermatt, with a short stop at "Chez Vrony". Cheese fondue and a huge dessert platter... It couldn't get any better than that!
The second night was spent at the Kulmhotel Gornergrat.
The ride up there by train was already quite a visual experience!
And the next morning we did it again: alarm clock set for pitch darkness... This time we hiked down to Riffelsee to see another sunrise and we got lucky again with the weather.
Meet the crew...
