Nestled at 1,200 m in the heart of the Vaud Alps, Les Diablerets is an authentic mountain village at the foot of an imposing mountain range, topped with a majestic glacier. This characterful village consisting completely of chalets has been developed sympathetically, protecting its historical heritage. During the winter and summer seasons, the main street is transformed into a real focal point where visitors can enjoy this typical atmosphere and soak up the peace and quiet. The walks along the “Grande Eau” river create a real sense of timelessness. Far from all the stresses of an urban environment, Les Diablerets is only 120 km from Geneva Airport and less than 40 kilometres from Montreux. The centre of this area is 3 km away at Vers l’Eglise, a small rural late 13th century village. Here you’ll find a chapel built in 1396, converted to a temple in 1530, with a stunning authentic and preserved interior. Opposite the church, the Musée des Ormonts holds temporary exhibitions focused on preserving and presenting the traditions and heritage of the Ormonts area. With the proximity of Les Diablerets and Glacier 3000, visitors can combine unique and original activities all year round. Skiing on the glacier is guaranteed from November to May. During the summer season, there’s the Alpine Coaster, the longest bobsled track on rails in Europe. There’s also the Peak Walk, the first suspension bridge in the world linking 2 peaks. The 108-metre walkway is accessible all year round and offers visitors a 360° vista, including more than 24 peaks over 4,000 metres.
The Les Diablerets ski area easily links the resorts of Villars, Gryon and Glacier 3000 to form a varied network of ski runs. Efficient lifts take skiers, tobogganers and walkers to the top of the slopes in minutes. The 7 km toboggan run is a fun way to enjoy winter fun. It is also open on certain evenings, making a night run by headlamp a unique adventure!
The Nordic ski trails are regularly marked out and take the cross-country skier to a quiet and secluded place for a total immersion in nature.
