We were going to be too early to Sun Valley so we stopped at this place. The people are licensing the place from the state and doing tours into the ICE caves. We enjoyed the tour and the history. Who would think that Ice formed just 50 feet underground and was used as far back as the early 1900s. The... More

This is a great side trip if you are in the area of Craters of the Moon. It is a Lava Tube that has ice in the bottom of it we saw something similar at the Lava Tubes in Northern California but this cave was better lit and you could actually see the ice. It is a privately run attraction... More

Hubby and I were not sure what to expect with the Ice Cave tour. There were about 26 of us in our group. The owners finally agreed a small discount if we bring 20 people... It was 104 degrees outside, too hot to wait around to the next tour time. Outside was a bit cheesy but fun for children. What... More

What an unexpectedly great place! Well worth the cost of admission. Our tour guide was so informative and extremely patient with my talkative 6 yo and squirrelly 2yo. The ice cave was cold. Bring a jacket. It was very cool to explore. They have a great gift shop with very reasonably priced rocks and fossils- even fossilized dinosaur teeth! And... More

Tristan was our guide, very knowledgeable and polite, unique geography and worth the stop if you are interested in nature... Tours every bottom of the hour or so, don't be distracted by the kitsch at the entrance.

Not sure what we were really expecting, but it is an interesting place. The outside is quite cheesy with fake dinosaurs and Indians but don't let that stop you from continuing in. The cave itself is what you want to see. Supposedly only one of two (at least in the US) that stays frozen all year. There is some walking... More

This is a guided tour through the ice caves. It looks a little funky from the front but don't worry about that the cost is well worth it. The stairs and ramps within the cave are good and stable. They will point out any ice that might be on them. Great guide with lots of information about the area and... More

Been here a few times with family and the tour is worth the price of admission. You will need a jacket and be prepared to do some hiking and using stairs made of rocks with or without railings. Interesting and unique place to visit. Only complaint is that there is no official online information for this attraction in terms of... More

Haven't been here in close to ten years. Still worth the time and money ($10 each) to take the guided tour. The ice cave is fascinating inside. The collapsed lava tubes along the trail are also really cool. My 12 year old son really enjoyed stopping here. Do you exit through the gift shop? Of course! But that's true most... More
