Epic Europe



With imposing views of the Matterhorn, the Cervo embraces its mountainous surroundings. Bright and welcoming, with a distinctly modern twist, it gives a fresh perspective on the Zermatt mountain holiday.

The Cervo is a timber-framed lodge nestled on the edge of the forest above Zermatt. 6 chalets pieced together and finished with local materials such as felt, pine and stone, create an ambiance of contemporary alpine elegance. Each chalet consists of several categories of rooms, suites and a private wellness area, or can be rented for exclusive use for private groups. Signature “Spa Suites” include steam bath with rain shower, outdoor whirlpool on the private terrace, with view of the Matterhorn.


The setting is quiet but not isolated (you can take the hidden Sunnegga elevator, from town directly to the entrance), and provides opportunities for skiing and hiking directly from the door.


FOOD & DRINK: The Stuba with its 14 Gault Millau points and authentic mountain cuisine is one of the local Zermatters’ favorites. In winter ski-in to the après bar on the terrace for live music and Swiss beer & wine.


SPA & WELLNESS: Each chalet features its own “mini-spa” complete with sauna, steam room, outdoor whirlpool, massage showers, kneipp basin, relaxation area and treatment room.


LOCATION: Overlooking Zermatt on the Riedweg, directly at the end of the slopes. From Zermatt station, it takes less than 10 minutes on foot to the Cervo. From the valley station of the Sunnegga funicular, the lift takes you directly to reception.

  • "I have done trips in the Alps and surrounding regions with Epic Europe for the past 4 years, and every one has been unique and surpassed the last. The experiences that they deliver due to their personal relationships are a window into the real life in these incredible locations, and they share these friendships with us." - K.B., CT USA
  • "Our family spent last Christmas in Zermatt on a bespoke Epic Europe ski trip. The special thought and care that they put into our holiday made it our best yet." - L.M.; CA USA
  • "Hiking in the Alps has always been on my bucket list, but I wasn't sure that a typical trip was my style. Epic Europe designed a custom route for our group, staying in the best little inns and hotels, and we felt like we had the trails to ourselves. I will come back again and again to explore new trails with their guides every year that I can!" - R.B., NY USA
  • “The team at Epic Europe created the most incredible trip for us, where everything came together seamlessly, and we never had to think about what came next - it just magically happened as if it was meant to be. That takes real talent, and they make it look easy." - B.N., WY USA
  • "I would have to say that Verbier and Zermatt might be the best places I have ever ridden a mountain bike, and I couldn't imagine going without the help of Epic Europe's guides. It was a dream trip for sure." - B.S., PA USA
  • "A day of heliskiing in Italy culminated with a sunset run off the Breuil saddle of the Matterhorn - one of the most thrilling runs of my life - and we left our tracks in a place where they remained for a week afterward, reminding us of the best day of skiing in our life!" - WG, CT USA
  • "Epic Europe has coordinated several corporate events for us over the past 5 years, and I cannot imagine a more professional operation to handle all of the details. From a team-building event for 50 people in a 17th-century castle atop a mountain pass, to marketing conferences and catalog shoots, their knowledge of the best locations in the Alps is second-to-none, and they are as good as it gets at being creative." - E.P., Lugano CH
  • "Epic Europe's custom road biking trip that they put together for my buddy's bachelor party was great - the right combination of killer rides, great hotels, and outstanding restaurants. Great guides, and overall a perfect trip." - A.S., London UK
