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 situated toboggan run in the world - the Alpine Coaster. Other top attractions include the dogsled ride, a stroll over the Glacier Walk, or the Snowbus tour. Those who are hungry can enjoy regional specialities and international dishes at Restaurant Botta.

What people are saying about Canton Bern

Perfect day! The flight was easy and beautiful. The instructors were kind and explained in detail what we would be doing. Fun time for me and my teenage children! The cost was pricey, but it was worth it for the experience. The cost did not include pictures or videos, but they are available for an additional 40 CHF per person. We bought those, too, so we could have record of our flight! You can bring your own GoPro that that will set up for you, though, but then you’d have to pay the price for a GoPro for every person in your group. Easier to let them take the pictures!

The paragliding experience was fantastic. Very well coordinated, and safe. I would recommend it to anyone considering it.
