What You Can Expect

Werfen Ice Caves Tour from Salzburg

Werfen Ice Caves Tour from Salzburg

To reach the caves, you combine walking (a safe and wonderful way to enjoy the Alps close up) and a cable car. The Eisriesenwelt is the world's largest ice cave.

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!

Important Note:
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.

The best tour I've ever had. The tour guide was terrific. He made sure we were prepared for the climb and encouraged even the slowest climbers. Definitely a 5 star trip. Thank you viatour!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

The ice caves were an amazing experience.
There is a bit of a hike from the parking lot to the caves themselves, even if you take the cable car, so keep that in mind. Best to dress lightly and take a warm jacket for the caves.
