Real Road Adventures

Schilthorn And Matterhorn Regions

Season 1, Episode 3 of 6

Electric cars are fantastic for getting you where you need to go, but there are a few Alpine regions that are so special, they're worth parking the car and just plunging in. In the car-free regions of the Schilthorn and Matterhorn, Jeff travels by electrically powered cable cars, trains, and bikes for heart-stopping mountain views. He savors the splendor of the Lauterbrunnen Valley, a wonderland of 72 waterfalls. He maneuvers over sheer mountain walls on a fixed climbing route called a "Via Ferrata," and indulges in a luxury eco-resort. Hiking in the shadow of the Matterhorn, Jeff cavorts with adorable blacknose sheep.
