Journey to the Goms.

Closer than you think.

How to get to the Goms

Whether by train or by car: Even the journey to the Goms is an experience. The villages of the Goms are situated between 1200 and 1400 meters above sea level. The roads in the region are well developed and the entire Goms is excellently accessible by public transport (Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn). With the drive through the magnificent mountain landscape, even the journey becomes a vacation.

By train

Train travelers arrive via the Lötschberg tunnel, the Simplon tunnel or from Sion via Brig or Visp where they change to the Matterhorn Gotthard railroad. All villages in Goms/Obergoms have a railroad station. By train and car (car transport at the Furka) the Goms is also accessible all year round through the Furka tunnel.
