Peak Walk by Tissot

The medieval castle of Montrottier and its remarkable collections is located in the Savoyard foreland between the Rhone and the limestone Pre-Alps. The castle houses wonderful sets of furniture, earthward, lace, weapons and rare objects from Africa and the far East. 

 

Opened in 1869, the Gorges, 300 m long, 70 m deep, surpass in picturesqueness and striking size the most famous Gorges. At the exit of the Gorge, the river threads its way through a veritable maze of rocks. It is a vast lapiaz with tormented shapes called "Sea of Rocks"

Glacier 3000 Walk & Ice Cave

After your cable car ride, experience the Glacier on foot via the Ice Express chairlift - An easy route up!  Enjoy a secured hike across crevasses and see the bright blue water of melting ice.

 

The walk takes around 1hr, taking you to the Restaurant Refuge l'Espace on the edge of the Glacier.  If possible, visit the ice cave of Glacier 3000, also called 'the Mill' or 'Devil's hole' due to its creation by a siphon of water that changes year upon year.  This cave is only accessible if conditions permit.

Want to ride the highest toboggan run in the world? The Alpine Coaster is an action packed ride, reaching speeds of up to 40 km/hr.  At more than six meters above the ground, you can feel weightless reaching the ride summits.  If it's too fast, you can control the toboggan with a break lever.
