“Trip of a life time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

What a place to go. We went on a work trip and everything was planned out for us. Dog sledging, walk over the Glacier and a meal with one hell of a view. Truly a great place to breath clean air and enjoy views to die for.

“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

This trip is a must but not for the faint hearted or those afraid of heights. At nearly 10000ft breathing at my age is a little laboured but the views and the vistas are out of this world.

“Wonderful experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Glacier 3000 is a wonderful experience , the scenery takes your breath away, and the alpine coaster is a surreal experience, amongst the bounty of Nature at its best..

Of course you need good weather to be able to enjoy the Glacier, also the snowbus ride on it. There is a restaurant serving good indian and international cuisine , also shops sellling souvenirs .
It is a must do, for all Nature lovers, the experience transcends words....

“The Alpine Coaster, the most phenomenal and crazy feeling!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

On the top of the glacier, the Alpine Coaster, a 1000m long descent with very safe sledges, at about 40km/h. Twelve turns, one at 560°. The great difference with a normal rollercoaster is that you control the speed, and if you never use the brakes, it is the most phenomenal and crazy feeling! You think «what am I doing here!» and the first thing you say once you finish is «let’s start again!». Trust a 65 years old grandfather!
