From Lausanne: Glacier 3000 Experience Tour

Visit Switzerland and explore for yourself the picturesque image of a Swiss chalet village. See Les Diablerets, in the heart of the Alps Vaudoises.

If you take the option of the cable car, jump into the mountains with the Glacier 3000, on the only bridge in the world which connects 2 summits, known as Peak Walk. The glacier offers the Alpine Coaster during the summer season, allowing you to enjoy nature and the spectacular scenery of the Alps mountains around you. Take advantage of the fun park and the adventures of the snow as sleds are waiting for you. Around 3:00 PM, descend to board the bus to Montreux and enjoy free time to feel the good vibes of this artistic city. Take in the views of Lake Geneva before returning to Lausanne.

After marveling at the truly awe-inspiring view that must be seen to believed, you begin your descent along the well- maintained Wanderweg path where all paths are safe and sign-posted. Listen to the clanging of the cowbells, admire the flowers, and breathe the fresh mountain air before you stop for lunch at an Alpine restaurant and enjoy the delicious local cuisine. You then continue on a gentle, tree-lined path as you disappear into the forest and alongside a fantastical glacier stream.

One of our most memorable days of our trip. Rene is awesome!

My husband, brother and myself signed up for the Hike in the Alps. Rene usually has small groups but we were delighted to find out it was just the four of us. It was nice having a small group and having an English speaking guide. Rene couldn't have been a better guide. He gave us good information about the area and about Switzerland in general. We were never rushed and we were able to make the hike what we wanted which helped make it a very memorable day. If I ever get a chance to go back to Switzerland, I would book another one of Rene's tours. Well worth the price!
