The Materhorn has long been a symbol of Switzerland. Wallis is the place to come to get to see it up close and personal. There are many 4000m plus mountains in the region and a trip to the resorts of Zermatt or Saas-Fee will have you gasping at the alpine panoramas. If you visit Saas-Fee be sure to have lunch in the revolving restaurant on top of Allain. The restaurant turns 360 degrees during each hour and allows an ever changing view of the surrounding mountains and glaciers.
