The Shosone Indian Ice Cave is an interesting stop. It has all the characteristics of a typical roadside tourist attraction but on a more primitive scale. There weren't bathrooms with running water but there was still a large collection of trinkets for sale and touristy items and photo opportunities that might not have anything to do with the area. There... More

Driving from Twin Falls to Yellowstone this is a nice place to stretch your legs and cool down. Little kids are the perfect audience and if your never seen a cave it would also interest you.

We made a special trip to see this place and were glad we did. It's quite interesting how nature can create a natural refrigeration system that will generate tons of ice. The tour is relatively short and fairy cheap. It was worth the stop.

We visited the cave on August 1st. I grew up in the area but had never visited the cave but had heard of it from friends and family. We went on the tour with a guide named Jeremy and he was friendly and talkative. He needs more training, one of our fellow guests asked him how long he had been... More

the Ice cave was interesting although the tour was not really good in terms of knowledge or truth in the statements and items. Inside the cave was interesting and really extraordinary but the cave bear only lived in Europe not in America so there is a little hype the feature itself does not need false embellishment. Nice to see and... More

We went as a family and had a great time. We arrived a couple of minutes late and the guide waited for us instead of making us wait for the next tour that started in an hour. The guide was very knowledgeable and funny. He took his time answering our questions and gave us plenty of time to explore. The... More

We stopped on our way to Craters of the Moon and it was worth the stop. We arrived just in time to start the guided 45 minute tour. There are numerous steps going down and the same ones coming back. The cave is in a lava tube and is different from any other cave we had seen. The trail is... More

A small ice cave and stunning beauty. Located in the very hot, you can encounter snakes up and down need a coat. Temperature differentials are very high. Stunningly beautiful place, suitable to visit in all seasons. Is located near the city of Twin Falls, Idaho.

I would say that the Indian Ice Caves were fun, but I felt really rushed on the tour. The cave is actually a good distance from the gift shop (not at all good for people with trouble walking). The tour guide talked really fast and being outdoors, it was really hard to hear. The cave itself is pretty neat, but... More

We had planned to stop and take the tour but luckily the considerate tour guide answered when we called to check if they were open. If you want to arrange private tour call: 208-886-2058. We will try to stop by next time--gave average rating in order to share info and since they care enough to have a live person answer,... More
