“Wouldn't recommend but interesting”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

We went today to the glacier, after the train which is very nice and a gondola to the glacier we walked down 400 stairs against huge numbers of skiers coming back up. Once we got to the glacier we walked in and touched the ice which is the best part of this whole experience. The tunnel has mannequins dressed as French royalty who visited the glacier hundreds of years ago, plaques and pictures. It all just seems a little tacky, but being inside a glacier is a real experience! We didn't spend much time here and walked back up the 400 steps, there were A LOT of skiers so get behind one and wait for a slow ascent back up.

“Interesting ice cave”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

The ice cave itself is quite interesting.
The trip going to the cave is quite challenging and but obviously it is worthy.
You will have a closer experience to see, touch and to feel the glacier directly.
It is a nice experience....

Once you finished the cave trip, you can try to go to the hotel close to the station.
Around the hotel you will find an amazing view of the Alps around.
