Glacier 3000

Fodor's Review

The ride on Glacier 3000, an aerial cableway strung from its station at Col du Pillon 7 km (4 miles) outside the resort village of Les Diablerets to a shelf at Scex-Rouge, is a thrill and well worth the steep fare. Vistas of Alpine peaks, vast meadows, and clusters of sloping-roof farmhouses extend to Lac Léman and the Jura Mountains. The 20-minute ascent is done in two segments, ending at the metallic, jewelry-box-shaped restaurant designed by world-famous architect Mario Botta.
