Beyond its technical prowess, this is an exceptional site in a breathtaking alpine setting. Open from mid-June to mid-October, it can be reached by car via a beautiful mountain road, or by taking the Theytaz bus. Free parking is available on arrival. At the foot of the giant, the discovery begins. Book your guided tour inside the dam wall, relive the history of this epic by visiting the exhibition centers, take the cable car that will take you 285 meters up to the dam's crowning glory.

The Dixence cable car runs from the moment the road opens until mid- to late-October, conditions permitting.  In less than 5 minutes, it takes you up to the top of the dam to enjoy the view over the valley. A short, exhilarating ride. Information and timetables on Theytaz Excursions
