Switzerland: Les Diablerets

leave a comment »

Les Diablerets, an important centre for adventure sports, lies between Lake Geneva and Gstaad at an altitude of 1200 metres. Even in summer, the Glacier 3000 ski region in the heart of the Vaud Alps offers skiing and glacier enjoyment over an expansive area.

Direct train connection to Aigle (Route Simplon, Geneva – Brig), subsequently mountain train A.S.D. (Aigle – Sépey – Les Diablerets).

Duration of the train rides:
Lausanne – Aigle 30 min.
Aigle – Les Diablerets 50 min.

Summer
Active guests in particular will get their money’s worth in Les Diablerets. Skiing and snowboarding until well into the early summer in the glacier ski region of Glacier 3000 offer competition to a wide range of adventure sports: canyoning, hydro speed, paragliding, dirt monster biking (a cross between mountain biking and motorcycling), tyrolienne traversing, or the highest Alpine Coaster (toboggan run on tracks) at the Glacier 3000 mountain station. The «Indiana» fun obstacle course and fixed rope routes round off the activities. But traditional sports are certainly also on offer: walking (250 km of walking trails) and mountain biking. And excursions to the Aigle viticultural museum not far from Lake Geneva, the Bex salt mine in the lower Valais, or by postal bus across the Col du Pillon to the nearby sophisticated resort of Gstaad are always worthwhile.
