The guide was interesting guy, he told and showed a lot. Well, we expected a little bit more to walk underground, but still it was really interesting excursion. We saw the river in ice palace and even had a very short trip by boat.

Great experience, not only for kids, also for adults. You go deep into the ice caves, climb down ladders, and a really cool experience is the short boat ride on an ice lake. Boots help, wearing chucks may be a bit slippery. One thing: Bring...More
