Luxury ski resorts: Zermatt's Glacier Palace is like a fairytale
What makes luxury ski holidays in Zermatt so special is the combination of excellent slopes, outstanding restaurants, wonderful luxury ski chalets and the number of things to do off the snow.
And one of the best experiences families can have at the Swiss resort is a journey through the Glacier Palace.
US traveller Pinkali wrote on her personal blog Life as I am Living It about her visit to the palace, describing it as being a magical and mystical place which takes the breath away.
The writer said that families can look forward to numerous ice sculptures bathed in blue light, which is a wonderful sight to behold.
Summing up the trip, the blogger described it as similar to being "inside a fairytale".
For the more adventurous family, there is a glacier crevasse which they can negotiate should they wish for a challenging ascent back to the top of the glacier.
