A journey across the Alps


A new adventure awaits guests in summer 2024 - the Alpine crossing between Milan and Zermatt. After years of intensive planning and innovative work, the vision of a direct link between Zermatt in Switzerland and the picturesque village of Breuil-Cervinia in Italy has finally become a reality. This unique journey across the highest mountain station in Europe promises unforgettable moments as it traverses the majestic beauty of the Alps, from one luxury resort to the next.

The new Zermatt Bergbahnen route promises breathtaking views of the Zermatt mountains and allows you to discover the region's rich fauna, flora and glacier landscape. With a high standard of safety and comfort, it offers the opportunity to cross the border between Switzerland and Italy at almost 3,500 metres above sea level.

From 17 June, CERVO and the hotel VIU in Milan are offering a comprehensive package designed to make your stay unforgettable:

The journey begins in the liveliest area of Milan, between Corso Como and Piazza Gae Aulenti. The Hotel VIU Milan stands out for its unique architecture.

With its 124 rooms, divided into 13 different categories, the hotel offers the perfect blend of elegance, design and charm. The furnishings of each room are designed to make every stay unforgettable and all-encompassing.

On the eighth floor, in a space that opens up 360 degrees to the Milan skyline, the VIU terrace blends in harmoniously and is essential as a place of leisure and serenity.

A summer cocktail at sunset on the infinity deck above the water of the VIU pool is an opportunity to take time to relax, take a deep breath and then get back to everyday life.

After an overnight stay in Milan, the journey continues to Cervinia. Transport is organised by VIU to make the transition seamless. The crossing of the Alps takes place in the comfortable cabins of the 3S gondola. This unforgettable journey offers a unique view of the impressive mountain scenery. The CERVO Mountain Resort organises the safe transport of luggage during the crossing so that guests can concentrate fully on the adventure. 

Once in Zermatt, guests can enjoy the refreshing mountain air at CERVO.

Guests spend at least one night at the resort, including a sumptuous breakfast in the Bazaar restaurant. Surrounded by the rugged beauty of Zermatt, CERVO is the gateway to the mystical mountain world of the Swiss Alps. The village, the resort and the surrounding mountains can be explored on foot or by bike.

In summer, the two restaurants Madre Nostra and the Bazaar are open at CERVO, offering a wide variety of culinary traditions.

The Italian restaurant Madre Nostra presents itself as an elegant alpine ambience and celebrates Italian cuisine - in all its deliciousness, contemporary and refined. Unforgettable moments can be experienced on the most beautiful terrace in Zermatt. Surrounded by nature, the terrace offers the perfect backdrop to enjoy the peace and quiet.

The Bazaar is the centrepiece of the CERVO. In a relaxed atmosphere, you can enjoy the mostly vegetarian dishes - inspired by the lively markets in the Orient, uniquely prepared in Zermatt. 

Last but not least, the Ātman Mountain Spa promises peace, relaxation and mindfulness. The spa is inspired by Japanese onsen, Bhutanese hot stone baths and northern European sauna art.

This Alpine crossing not only offers an unrivalled opportunity to experience the beauty of the Alps, but also promises luxury, comfort and unforgettable experiences. Travellers can book their journey from VIU Milan to CERVO Mountain Resort Zermatt today and be enchanted by the magic of the Alps. The trip can be booked in both directions.
