Today we started in Zermatt, Switzerland and we ended our day in Champery, Switzerland. First, we took the train from Zermatt to Visp, where we picked up our rent-a-car and we then drove to Champery. It took about 1.5 hours to get there, and it was a beautiful drive!
After we arrived in Champery we found a place for lunch, and then we drove around town. The town of Champery is more of a village, as they call it; it only has about 1,200 people who live here. The town is known for their skiing, in the wintertime, and they have over 195 ski lifts! Our main activity for the day was a hike up the cliffs that are around Champery. The hike had beautiful views, and the weather kind of cooperated with us, it was kind of drizzling all day with rain, and it stopped while we were on our hike. We then drove around some of the “Mountain” roads, as they call them, getting even more beautiful views.
For dinner, we again had cheese fondue with dried meats. The fondue was amazing as usual and the views of the valley were just as good!
