The Dizzying Heights of Glacier 3000

5th June 2018

The excursion to Glacier 3000 is a highlight of any adventure to Camp Suisse. The glacier is the highest point of the Lake Geneva region, and is home to the only suspension bridge in the world connecting two mountain peaks. It is called Peak Walk by Tissot.

The bridge connects the smaller peak (View Point) with the 5 metre higher main peak (Scex Rouge) and takes all guests to incredible heights. The 107 metre long and 80 centimetre wide bridge offers a stunning view onto the Alps: the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc, Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau are all visible from the bridge and offer grandiose views, far off into the distance. The suspension bridge is free of charge and open year-round subject to weather conditions.

Glacier 3000 also features a marked glacier trail, which runs from Scex Rouge to Quille du Diable and is open all year-round. 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.

Year after year, our campers enthuse over our dog sledding experience. The joy of the pack of dogs moving around in the snow is contagious, and felt by everyone watching them. The Huskies pull you through the beautiful glacier landscape and allow you to have a very special experience.
