Visited with my wife who is a bit nervous with regards to heights and ladders. She found it nerve racking as the ladders are small and slippery. The guides are not very good and you feel rushed. The tour is over before you know it and you are left expecting more.

Well worth the effort to visit but I'm not sure that the title of ice palace gives an idea of what to expect. This glacier is unique and it's quite mind blowing to be walking around inside it and take a trip on a boat! Don't attempt it in ski boots and take your crash helmet as it's better than... More

Just randomly decided to do this and was pleasantly surprised! This "ice palace" is not only super interesting but also a beautiful thing to witness. You are led through an hour long tour and get to walk through it at your own pace to look at all the wonderful glittering ice. (however I wouldn't recommend the boat ride its about... More

If you take the little brochure you have already read more than is told and seen the prettiest that this site has to offer. We paid 21€ p.p. for the so-called grande tour and about 32€ p.p. to get all the way up the glacier. First you have to get to the entrance, which means, descending the mountain on foot... More

A visit to the ice caves is absolutely unique. Not cheap - the cost of the cable car to the 3rd level and then the entry fee- but worth it, Be aware that larger cameras are not allowed into the cave - only I-phones or the small pocket cameras are permitted. The ice formations are breathtaking. Not much time is... More

The tour was interesting and eye-opening for us. Although the interior temperature is at a constant zero, it is actually warmer than the mountain top in winter, so you would have been well-dressed in winter for it. However, it is quite a confined area so you need to be comfortable in such an environment. Wear the helmet provided, you will... More

Unfortunately our guide spoke very little English and did not describe anything to us. He rushed through the caves with little time to study and enjoy

Awesome experience inside of a glacier. There are safety ropes, ladders, rubber mats and wooden staked to keep you from falling down. The views and experience is absolutely cool and a must. It cost around 21 Euro to go inside and 33 Euro to take (3) cable car rides up to the top. Tour guide was great and photos are... More

extraordinary spot, but the visit doesn't take very long. We were promised a boattour inside, but this was cancelled due to the many visitors. It's 0°, so take warm clothing and wear sturdy shoes, it's slippery. You also have to climb some ladders inside.
