Glacier 3000

  • The Glacier 3000 Pass offers alpine adventure for all !
  • Children under 4 travel for free.




Glacier 3000 : Elevate your expectations of an excursion.

An offer like this is almost indescribable, but we’ll try. Imagine a pristine alpine haven where you can ski, hike, snowboard and go on dogsled rides through some of the most scenic outlooks in the world. Where the world’s highest toboggan run is waiting to whisk you through one glacier vista after another at speeds of up to 25 mph. Where else can you see 24 snow-capped mountain giants including Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau, the Matterhorn, Grand Combin and even Mont Blanc ? Where else can you walk between two peaks on a beautifully engineered suspension footbridge that leads to a summit station with a restaurant where you pinch yourself to make sure it’s all real ? And where you are aware of every breath you take, not just because you can see your breath, but because you can’t believe how alive you feel ? Only here. This is Glacier 3000.
