Wat je gaat doen

You will start off by taking the famous "Golden Pass" train to Gstaad and then a bus to Glacier 3000. Here you will take a cable car to the Glacier du Sex Rouge (2’971 m ≈ 9’747 ft). NOTE cable car tickets not included. On top you will be able to walk the glacier, take the alpine coaster or go up to the Peak Walk by Tissot.
After going back down into the valley, you will take a detour to Cascade du Dar, an alpine waterfall. From Dar you will go uphill once again, this time on foot. Passing by the tiny alpine Lake of Retaud, you will arrive at Col de Voré pass. Röstigraben, a symbolic border between French-speaking and German-speaking Switzerland is crossed here. From here you will enjoy a breath-taking view of Les Diablerets massif and its glaciers.
Next stop is the beautiful Lake Arnensee. If you make good time, you will stop by the Huus am Arnensee restaurant. It is hard to resist their hot berry cake. Next you will ascend to the Fenêtre d'Arnon mountain pass. From here you will experience a spectacular view of the surrounding Alps and the region of Saanenland. Röstigraben is crossed again here and from now on you will remain in the French-speaking part.
The village of Etivaz and the cheese factory of the same name is the last stop of hike. Here you will enjoy a selection of their cheeses and a glass of local Chasselas wine. We will take the same train back to Montreux.
Other things to note
I will plan the hike in accordance with local weather forecast and adjust the itinerary if necessary.

Transport tickets not included. I suggest you look into getting a Half-Fare or Swiss Travel Pass.

The length of this hike is 18.6 km (11.5 miles) with a total ascent of 909 m (2'982 feet).

My friends and I had a wonderful time hiking with Yury around the Les Diablerets Massif. He was kind enough to modify the experience in such a way so that we were able to enjoy Glacier 3000 as well. He made everyone on the trip feel welcomed and worked with everyone's fitness level. We shared many stories and laughs through out our experience. I definitely recommend any experience with Yury!

This was a great day with a full itinerary exploring so many aspects of Swiss hiking and experiences. Yury is knowledgeable, patient and generous with his time and attention. He really gave us access to more than we could have achieved ourselves. I highly recommend a day hiking with Yury and hope I get the chance to do so again.
