The train ride to the glacier is fun and beautiful. Then you have a gondola ride and LOTS of stairs but totally worth it. The ice cave is super cool as well. Very sad to see how much the glacier has melted.

A great place to visit to get a close up view of the Boissons Glacier. Walked to the panoramic viewing point at the top. Stunning.

Great place to visit in the summer months for walking, taking a chairlift ride, sitting in the chalet cafe and admiring the view or challenging yourself with a long walk up the zigzagging paths from chalet to chalet to view the glacier close up.
