Chemin Isenau-Col du Pillon - 977

The winter walk between Isenau and the Col du Pillon offers spectacular views of the Les Diablerets mountains and the peaks surrounding Les Diablerets and passes by Lake Retaud situated in a basin on the south side of the Palette and frozen in winter.

A chance to get away from it all above the resort of Les Diablerets, this trail takes you from Isenau to the Col du Pillon, via Lake Retaud, an idyllic place with spectacular views of the Les Diablerets glacier.

From the higher resort of Isenau, this easy walk starts off along the terrace of the Restaurant d’Isenau then crosses the ski slope and continues along the snow-covered footpath to Lake Retaud. You’ll definitely be charmed by the panoramic terrace of this recently refurbished restaurant where you can take a little break and enjoy the spectacular views of this unique site. The walk continues to the Col du Pillon, from where you can see the impressive cable cars travelling up to Glacier3000. To return to the resort, take the shuttle bus that takes you directly back to the village. Families with young children can easily pull a sledge all along the trail.
