  • Glacier 3000 Cable Car Roundtrip Ticket

    3. Glacier 3000 Cable Car Roundtrip Ticket

    Directly between Gstaad and Les Diablerets lies this well-known and accessible glacier in Switzerland. It's only a 15-minute cable car ride up to almost 3000 meters. Nowhere else can you get up to any Swiss glacier so fast. The panoramic cable car ride alone is itself an adventure. At the top, the view opens up and guests can enjoy no less than 24 peaks over 4000 meters, inclunding the Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, Matterhorn, and Mont Blanc. This fantastic view can also be enjoyed from the restaurants Botta and Refuge de l'Espace. The best part is this place is open all year-round and it is a unique paradise for excursions. Crossing the Peak Walk by Tissot - a 107-meter long suspension bridge, which is by the way, the only one in the world to connect two peaks - is an adventure within itself. Guaranteed to raise your adrenaline level even higher is a wild glacier ride on the hightest situat...

    The cable car going up was really cool, quite amazing views. But unfortunately the higher we got up, the less we could see due to weather. So I’m sure the views were spectacular, but due to weather we weren’t able to see anything. Still a cool experience!

    For this trip compared to our Mt Titlis one, our guide Catherine was very clear and good. She not only spoke well in English and Spanish, she introduced many parts of our journey and background knowledge of Switzerland to us. I was a very educational coach journey on our way to Interlaken.

    Don't miss skydiving the Swiss Alps – an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience! Climb up to 15,000 feet in a helicopter, take a big breath, and exit the perfectly sound chopper to free fall over the magnificent mountains.

Pull the opening handle of your parachute and glide gently into the valley for the safe landing.

    This will remain as one of the most memorable activities you will do in your life. Christian and team were so chilled out that it felt like going for a spin over the Alps. The best part about this experience is that you will get to ride a chopper over the Alps, free fall over the Alps and paraglide over the Alps, all in one package.. Loved the dedication and professionalism of the entire crew.. i'll come back and do this with my wife again soon. Don't miss this, once in a lifetime opportunity ! SKY IS THE LIMIT !
