Those who explore the glacier area of Glacier 3000 will experience unique nature at close range and will not forget the impressive views for a long time. The marked glacier trail is ideally suited for this purpose. It runs from Scex Rouge to the Quille du Diable and is accessible all year round. The hike begins either directly at the Scex Rouge mountain station or takes the Ice Express chair lift down to the glacier to start the walk in the snow from there.

 

Culinary delights

The destination of the Glacier Walk, which is reached after one hour: the restaurant Refuge l'Espace at the edge of the glacier at the Quille du Diable. Here you have a wonderful view down into Val Derborance and the Valais - and the numerous delicious dishes promise a culinary break at a high level. Those who have recharged their batteries on the way back to the Scex Rouge can walk back to the glacier. Those who prefer to relax and enjoy the beautiful view can simply take the Snow Bus from Glacier 3000.
