What are the other expenses apart from hiring a Guide?

Zermatt – Schwarzsee return lift costs: Adults: sFr.33 Plus the cost of your Guide at approx half price. Discounts for holders of SwissRail Pass (25% off) and Half Fare cards (50% off).

Overnight stay at the Hörnli Hut: sFr.150. Small discounts for members of national alpine associations e.g. Alpine Club, BMC A.A.C, C.A.F. Plus the cost of your Guide at the same price. Prices for half-board (overnight accommodation, dinner and breakfast) are c. 150 CHF and 450 CHF for a double room. Check out the huts reservation page via the link below:

You can pay with Euros in all Swiss huts; some, not all, also accept credit cards and REKA cheques but cash is generally best.

If you need to spend a night in Zermatt we can book good quality and value accomodation to suit a variety of budgets. We often use the bahnoff hotel which has a mixture of rooms including dormitory style accomodation from 40 sFr. Again you will need to cover the cost of your Guides overnight stay in Zermatt at a discounted rate.
