Create an itinerary including Marmot Trail
Experience alpine mountains and meet the friendly marmots on Marmot Trail, a marble path ideal for a family hike. The narrow, downhill track offers plenty of panoramic views, including views of the Matterhorn. Pay attention to the explanation boards and various wooden sculptures along the way if you want to learn more about the life of these lively animals that emerge from their hiding places underground in spring and summer. The trail passes by Lake Leisee, so don't forget your bathing suit and a picnic basket. Use our Zermatt trip planner to add Marmot Trail and other attractions to your Zermatt vacation plans.
