Winter hike on the Glacier 3000 with a beautiful view.

From the Col du Pillon the cable car takes you comfortably up to Glacier 3000. The walk begins directly at the Scex Rouge mountain station. Those who prefer to take it a bit easier, can take the Ice Express chairlift to the glacier and can begin their walk in the snow from there.

The goal of the Glacier Walk, which takes about an hour, is the Restaurant Refuge l'Espace on the edge of the glacier by Quille du Diable. It offers a wonderful view down into the Derborance Valley and Valais - and the many delicious menus promise a culinary delight of a top quality. Those who feel revitalized, and full of energy after the meal can walk back to Scex Rouge. Those who prefer to relax and enjoy the beautiful view can simply get on the Glacier 3000 Snow Bus.
