  • Full-Day Trip to Riviera Col du Pillon & Glacier 3000

    2. Full-Day Trip to Riviera Col du Pillon & Glacier 3000

    Discover the picturesque area of Les Diablerets (little devils) in the heart of the Alps Vaudoises at Col du Pillon. Made up of chalets, this village has an amazingly preserved heritage. Don't miss the majestic 3000–meter high glacier. Dominate the snowy peaks and take on the Peak Walk, the world's first suspension bridge connecting two peaks. At 108 meters long, discover more than 24 peaks over 4000 meters on the walkway. Take advantage of the fun park where sleds are waiting for you. In summer, try a descent in the Alpine Coaster, Europe's highest tracked toboggan run.  If you prefer to stay in the village of Diablerets, take a stroll along the river and explore the beautiful landscape. Around 3:00 PM, head back to the bus to return to Montreux, and enjoy some free time to explore this artistic city before returning to Geneva.

    The trip to the Glacier 3000 was without a doubt a unique experience, from the moment we got on the bus to the moment our trip ended. Thomas, our tour guy was very friendly, patient and very informative, it was great to have him as our guide. We went on August 6th and thank God it was sunny and beautiful, but the bridge still felt cold and windy so wear warm clothes. The roller coaster is a must especially if you have you g children. I would highly recommend it.
