Description 

Summary

Experience an ultimate mountain adventure atop the highest alp of the Lake Geneva region, approximately 2,971 metres above sea level. Glacier 3000 will show you astonishing landscapes made of 24 snow-covered giants, including Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Matterhorn, Grand Combin, and even Mont Blanc in the distance.

The journey starts with a panoramic rail journey via the Golden Pass from Montreux to the beautiful resort town of Gstaad, and then by bus to Col du Pillon where a cable car will take you up to the summit station.

There are plenty of exciting activities and attractions waiting for you, such as the Peak Walk by Tissot, where you must cross a 107-metre long and 80-centimetre wide suspension bridge, and the Alpine Coaster, a ride rendering speed thrills of up to 40 km per hour on a one kilometre stretch with 520-degree loops, curves, and nasty humps.

Glacier 3000 also features world-class bars & restaurants, taking the experience to another level by letting you taste delicious regional dishes whilst enjoying spectacular views of mountain ranges in the comfort of your seat.  Amongst these is the famous Restaurant Botta, designed by the award-winning architect Mario Botta, and the Restaurant Refuge l’Espace, which offers an impressive view of Valais.
