Location

Where do we go?

The Matterhorn is one of the world's most famous mountain peaks and for sure one of the iconic shots when it comes to landscape photography. Standing almost 4’500m tall at the border of Swiss canton Wallis and the Italian Aosta valley, it shows a significant and distinct shape that is best seen (and photographed) from the east.


To get the best views and compositions of this Swiss classic, we will set camp at the Fluhalp and visit all the famous mountain lakes that reflect the Matterhorn like a mirror. The Stellisee will be on our list as well as the Grindjisee and 3 others. We will explore the high alpine region of Zermatt, visit the rural mountain village of Findeln and enjoy incredible panoramic views from sunrise to sunset.

  • Meeting, walk to Fluhalp, first shots from Stellisee
