Good to know

This tour is suitable for both single travelers and families.

Ice caves are a dynamic natural phenomena only accessible during wintertime when temperatures drop. Each year new unique caves are formed in different areas of the glacier. We visit a naturally formed ice cave during this tour.

The photos are from this winter season, but the cave and other formations we visit might have changed due to the nature of formations.
