Mule Trekking – A Unique Way to See Zermatt Switzerland

There are many different ways to take in the sights of Zermatt Switzerland, the most popular being by skis, but that is not the only way to see this beautiful Swiss village.  You can hike, you can see it by train, and you can see it by cable car too, but for a very unique experience, you can see Zermatt by mule.  Of course, this is something you will have to visit during the summer time for, but that gives you the perfect reason to visit Zermatt more than one time a year.

Many people who decide to venture into the wild this way are surprised to find out how much of the area can actually be toured by mule.  It is not only in the village and on flat land that you can roam when you decide to take a mule trek, but much of the land consisting of lower hills and valleys.  You can take in a lot more scenery this way than if you were to go hiking, although hiking is something worth making time for too.  You can even go on extended mule trekking outings that will not only allow you to see even more scenery, but that will also allow you to spend some time in nature for a few days, if that is what you choose to do.

Mule trekking outings are led by a tour guide that will know exactly where to take you based on your skill level, exactly where to take you based on the amount of time you want to spend out, and exactly where to take you to see the very best scenery.  But although you will need a guide for your tour, you do not need to have experience in riding to ride a mule, as doing so is quite simple.  And you can choose whether you want to go on your adventure alone, with a friend or family member, or within a random group of people.  You can pretty much decide on every facet of your adventure, so that you can have exactly the experience you are looking for.

In order to get ready for your mule trek in and around Zermatt all you have to do is pack up a backpack with everything you will need for the hours or days you will be out there, and you will be ready to go.
