Wander on top of the world. Explore the alpine/glacier area to experience wild nature close up with spectacular mountain scenery stretching out in waves across the European alps. Hike the marked mountain and glacier trails, marvel at Ai, Mayen, Oldenhorn, Scex Rouge and Quille du Diable (the devil’s skittle) . We head straight to the top, and after a breathtaking ascent in the telecabine, take in the view of the surrounding alps 2000 – 3000 meters above sea level rolling away to forever. Imbibe the magic of an incredible view of the majestic panorama of the Swiss Alps.
The Diablerets Glacier hike begins after stepping out of the steep cable car ascent (also with awesome views) at the Scex Rouge mountain station. Look out over France, Italy and the rest of Switzerland from the Peak Walk. Hike down to the glacier terrain, or for those who prefer to take it a bit easier, take the Ice Express chairlift. We wander the terrain, heading for the refuge at the Quille du Diable for lunch, and either descend via either Reusch, or Sanetsch, or directly to Pillon, depending on weather and season. When the wind is too strong for the glacier, we hike the beautiful mountain trails high above the Ormonts Valley, along tracks forged by mountain goats over the centuries, during the summer months in the high country.
We drive back along the Ormonts Valley through the village of Les Diablerets, and the ancient village of Le Sepey before concluding the tour in Aigle. Or if you prefer, a ride on the Swiss funicular railway down the mountain is a lot of fun!
