Date of publication Winter 2018-2019

The helicopter company Air Zermatt was originally founded half a century ago as a rescue service for mountaineers in distress. 35,000 rescues later, there is no doubt that the company is a world leader and one of the most experienced in the field. But Air Zermatt also offers recreational activities like flyovers (one can see 38 of the peaks over 4,000 m around Zermatt), chauffeur services, heli-ski drop-offs, and even gourmet happy hours and food tours at the area’s highest altitude restaurants.
