What You Can Expect
You will enter this natural wonder with your guide, who will explain the labyrinths of large caverns, mysterious ice figures and give many added tales of adventure, to make your experience unforgettable. There is more to this cave than its echo!
You will need walking shoes, warm clothes and should be prepared for uphill walking. The climb to the ice caves is 134 meters, which is equivalent to climbing the stairs in a high block of apartments. Each individual should decide for themselves whether he or she is physically able to complete the climb. The beauty and breathtaking dimensions of the cave provide plenty of reward for the effort! Although the speed of the guided tour is tailored to the group, we advise those with serious walking difficulties or heart circulation problems not to visit the caves.
Please note, entrance fees of approx.
18 EUR per adult and 10 EUR per child are not included in the tour price and have to be paid separately on the day.
Two things: Bring extra warm clothes no matter how hot it is in Salzburg! And get to know your guide if you've got Lucas. He is super cool. The tour was totally worth it and took most of the afternoon. Oh and wear good warm walking shoes
My wife and I, and our two kids, took this tour to the Ice Caves. We are in our late 40's, and have two teenage boys (15 and 13). We all absolutely loved it. It was a wonderful change of pace, having spent a lot of time admiring European architecture, and visiting churches. It is quite a walk, and may be difficult for those not fit and those afraid of heights, but the scenic mountainous views, the caves, and ice formations are quite spectacular.
