Description

On this Ice Cave and Glacier Walk combo tour, you will explore the naturally formed ice caves. Before heading off to a glacier walk on crampons around the glacier tongue.The ice caves, only accessible in winter, open up for exploration when the meltwater underneath the glacier freezes over and leaves behind these ice tunnels. Your experienced guide will tell you more about their formation and show you around the caves. You will get plenty of time to take pictures of these breathtaking surroundings.You will then head up to the surface of the glacier, where your guide will lead you through the ever-changing glacial landscape. They will show you deep crevasses and unique ice features, whilst teaching you about the behavior of glaciers and their impact on nature.The walk to the glacier takes about 45-55 min. You will spend about 2 hours exploring the glacier and the full tour experience takes around 3.5 hours.Please note that ice caves are a natural phenomenon and the conditions can change depending on the weather. Your safety is the first priority so sometimes the tour may be canceled with short notice due to weather conditions or safety concerns. If this happens the tour operator will do their best to offer you an alternative tour if weather permits. Changes might also have to be done during the season because of accessibility to the ice cave and the trip might have to be relocated.
