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 ).

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.

Riviera Col du Pillon & Glacier 3000: High Level Experience in the Swiss Alps
Absolutely brilliant! Driver/Guide Neil was incredibly informative and helpful with his tips. The experience itself is unforgettable. 360 degrees of awesome. If one wanted an image of the grandeur of creation, one would only have to stand at Glacier 3000.

Glacier 3000 Gold Tour, Aperitif and Montreux Day Trip From Geneva
This trip was 1st class all the way, from the pickup to the escort to the drop off, the tour guide, Evan, made us feel like VIPs. The van was spacious and had panoramic windows. Evan was never intrusive, but always nearby in case we needed him. One of the activities was closed due to COVID-19 so the company refunded us part of the price. Very transparent and professional. We would definitely use this tour company again.

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
