Alpenwild's Swiss Tours Cross New, Largest Pedestrian Bridge

NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2017 : Alpenwild, the number one leader in adventure travel in the Swiss Alps, has been wowing guests with walks across the new pedestrian bridge, the world's longest, which just opened recently.

This leading tour operator has already incorporated the new pedestrian bridge into popular treks such as the Chamonix-Zermatt Haute Route, or Eiger to Matterhorn, and day hikes in Zermatt.

"Hikers love it — it is a real adrenaline rush. As part of the Europaweg trail near Zermatt, the bridge has been an immediate sensation for trekkers on our trips, who previously had to make a three-hour detour to avoid the danger of rockfall," says Greg Witt, founder of Alpenwild.

"The hike is best done in the morning, as the rising sun crests over the mountain and lights up the bridge. You're sure to get some great photos — but you just can't photograph adrenaline," he added.
