Glacier Exhibit and Ice Cave
The glacier exhibition and ice cave open this summer, 2017.
The ice cave can take a group of 50 at once with around 300 people per hour.
We maintain a -10C (14F) temperature in the ice cave. There is also a slight wind chill because of air circulation.
The ice cave takes around 7-12 minutes to explore.
Crampons are not needed in the ice cave. The floor is designed to be as save as possible. We ask visitors to tread carefully, but the ice cave is for all age groups and is wheelchair accessible.
The temperature in the ice cave is maintained at -10C (14F), so warm clothes are needed, but we will provide you with a poncho that will keep you cosy and warm.
We can lend you a warm vest to keep comfy in the ice cave. You don’t need special shoes.
