Hiking in Matterhorn land

9 October 2016

From September 8th to September 10th, 14 French section students and 7 from the English section went on a hike in the breathtaking surroundings Zermatt.

IIL staff members, Mandarine Derolland, Béatrice Lefifchoux and Diego Schneider, led the group on the three hikes chosen by Lofti Ben Hamida who know the area well.

  • Day 1 : Zermatt -> Furi -> les Marmites Glacières->Zmutt->Zermatt. 5 hour walk, 700 metres height difference
  • Day 2 : Zermatt-> Riffelalp->Riffelberg->Riffelsee->Riffelalp->Zermatt. 6 hour walk, 1200 metres height difference
  • Jour 3 : Zermatt->Furi->Schwarzsee->Furg->Furi->Zermatt. 5 hour walk, 800 metres height difference

Feedback following the excursion has been extremely positive. The behaviour of the students was exemplary throughout and they kept closely to the times and instructions given by staff.
