Escorted Rail Tours to Les Diablerets
A stunning glacial sight
The village of Les Diablerets is located at an altitude of 3,937
feet (1,200 metres), between the chic mountain resort of Gstaad and
the waters of Lake Geneva. It is surrounded by unspoilt nature at
the foot of an impressive Alpine massif, capped by one of
Switzerland's most beautiful glaciers. The imposing rock wall of
the mountain massif that surrounds Les Diablerets was regarded as a
dangerous and cursed place during the Middle Ages - the name of the
village is derived from the French word 'diable', meaning 'devil'.
The resort is a hub of winter sports activity, and in fact offers
year-round skiing on the Glacier 3000 area above the village. There
is also a network of 155 miles (250 kilometres) of walking trails
in the area surrounding Les Diablerets.
