Zermatt is 50km from Camping Bella Tola and is a car-free resort. Private traffic is only permitted up to Täsch (5 km before Zermatt), and the road between Täsch and Zermatt is closed to private transport.
Various car parks (2,900 spaces; 2,100 of them in the Matterhorn Terminal Täsch) and uncovered parking spaces (900 spaces) are available in Täsch. Some of the multi-storey car parks also have outside parking spaces, and offer a taxi service to and from Zermatt.
The Matterhorn Gotthard Railway has shuttle trains which run between Täsch and Zermatt every 20 minutes. A 12 minute train journey takes you to the Bahnhofplatz in Zermatt – at the heart of the Matterhorn village.
To get to the ski lifts from the station at Bahnhofplatz you can either walk or take public transport. There are 2 bus lines, a green and a red, which circle Zermatt. The green line is the Skibus which runs every 8 minutes between the train station and the bottom ski lift stations. Or take an electric taxi ride from the train station which costs around 20CHF.
From the bottom lift stations there are 3 lifts to get to the summer ski area -2 Matterhorn Express gondolas followed by 1 cable car from Trockener Steg to the Matterhorn glacier paradise. Please note: The estimated total journey time from Camping Bella Tola to the top of the glacier, including time to park, obtain train tickets, take train, ski hire and gondola ride, is around 3-4 hours. A very early start is definitely required to benefit from the best conditions in the morning.
