The Matterhorn

Located on the border between Switzerland and Italy, the Matterhorn is one of the most recognizable mountain peaks in the world and an iconic symbol of the European Alpine region.
The mountain itself attracts a large number of climbers every year, however, less adventurous visitors also flock to the area to enjoy the extraordinary scenery and to indulge in other outdoor pursuits such as hiking and skiing.

Although it was first successfully climbed back in 1875, the Matterhorn still provides a stern test to mountaineers today and is not for the faint hearted as it has claimed the lives of over 500 climbers since it was first conquered.
Whatever your reason for visiting the area, don’t forget your camera!
