Les Diablerets

The Basics

After riding the cable car to the 9,842-foot (3,000-meter) mountaintop of Glacier 3000, visitors can take in the views from the Botta restaurant and terrace, ride the Ice Express chairlift, and brave the Peak Walk by Tissot, the only mountain peak suspension bridge of its kind in the world. Guided tours run from Montreux, Geneva, and Lausanne, often combined with a stop in the village of Les Diablerets or at viewpoints around Lake Geneva.

Amazing experience!
Once you buy a Glacier 3000 Ticket from this website, you must go to Col du Pillon Cable Car station (15 min with a free bus from Les Diablerets) and change your printed (or mobile) ticket into a little ticket that you must scan to enter to Cable Car. When you are on the top, almost everything is FREE (Peak Walk by Tissot, Chair Lift, Glacier walk - AMAZING - and Glacier Fun Park). You should have sun glasses, because the light is very strong (sun + snow = blind :D ).

High level experience - Swiss Alps Glacier GOLD Adventure Tour from Montreux
Great guide and fun . i think it it was very pricey for what was included.having said that its a Must Do ..our guide was lovely,he took us for a snow picnic in a snow bus to a lovely land full of snow .it's a place the others who were at the Glacier didn't have access to( as we had the snow bus). Also one issue i had is each place was hurried.However the guide was very kind very warm and multiple times asked us to drink the wine,eat the cake,the cheese and bread.

Riviera Col du Pillon & Glacier 3000: High Level Experience in the Swiss Alps
This was the highlight of our trip. The tour guide was nice and gave us information about the areas as we drove through. We had so much fun walking the mountains, getting on the skywalk and taking in the breathtaking views. I don’t believe there’s enough time for this tour to do everything offered on the mountain since we had to rush back from the glacier walk but overall, we had a wonderful time and would recommend it. It was a dream come true to be on the Swiss Alps.

Expensive but would do it again

Glacier 3000 and Montreux Riviera from Geneva
It was an amazing experience. Unfortunately it was snowing when we got there meaning we didn’t have the best view but as we were leaving it got better. It is a tad expensive for what it is. You’re essentially paying for the 3 hour drive there and back. But the tour guide Babis was lovely and funny and explained loads. Apart from the expensive cost - it was a good experience.

Great time, driver / guide Tom was fantastic. Everything went smoothly. Mountains are awesome. Glacier is tremendous though the mushy snow covering made it hard to walk.

Glacier 3000 Ticket Including Cable Car and Peak Walk by Tissot
Visited with my wife and daughter on the 6th of July. We made the effort to get there for the first car going up at 9am, and I think that was a good idea. When we did the peak walk, we were the only ones on the bridge and got loads of time to take in the views in the most peaceful of surroundings. The weather was a bonus as is stayed clear the whole time we were up there. We also took in the toboggan run which was great fun and had lunch in the café/restaurant. The food was good but a bit pricey. However, not out of line with what you pay elsewhere in Switzerland. We were greeted with the most spectacular of views and I would highly recommend a visit

Glacier 3000 and Montreux Riviera from Geneva
My mom and I took this trip, and it was very nice! We had a pickup at our hotel which was right on time. The tour shuttle was very nice and comfortable with huge windows and even the roof was windows so you could see everything. Our guide, Zed, was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. There were only 4 people on this tour, so let us determine how long to stay and even took us to see a castle that wasn't on the tour. The glacier 3000 view was amazing! And Montreaux is beautiful. The only drawback was it was quite expensive, and I would have liked more time in Montreaux.
