Tucked in the heart of the Swiss Alps, Andermatt is in the skiing spotlight after a massive development of its luxury resorts, going from sleepy village to winter sport central. With an exquisite natural setting, Andermatt resembles a true Swiss storybook, complete with snowy mountains that jostle together to create some fantastic descents towards the authentic and traditional town.
If you are looking to leave your tracks on the slopes, make for the mountaintops, as, with steep descents on the glacier, pristine slopes on partially secured off-piste terrain and many natural jumps and drops, you will have an exhilarating winter, freeriding, snowshoeing, winter hiking, cross-country skiing and even tobogganing around the area. If your legs are tired from gallivanting through the powdery snow, bundle up in thick furs and glide across the Andermatt scenery, taking in the views of the surrounding villages and snow-capped peaks on a romantic horse sleigh ride.
Not just for winter enthusiasts, the surrounding mountains provide a wealth of activities during summer, such as mountain biking, fishing, golfing, scenic games of tennis and picturesque hikes through the Alps. Or if you prefer, nestle amongst the Alpine-style buildings of the mountain-pass town and discover Andermatt's historic architecture, delicious food and classically Swiss shops.
