Inside the cave you get to climb, slip through small holes and areas, quite fun. But the guide cannot speak English so basically you pay money to go in and look and climb around and you won't learn anything and will get ignored.

Great trip with kids [although a little expensive when you add the cable cars and the cave price]....Ice caves were much bigger than I anticipated. It was about 28 degrees in Hintertux, then 15 mins later we were on a glacier....surreal!

Why not visit the Spannagel caves at the top of Hintertux glacier. You can book your appointment at the info hut at the top of the highest lift. ( just walk out the lift and it's on your left a little way down the hill)....More

Whilst spending a weeks skiing in the Zillertal valley we opted to go to the Glacier to get above the rain lower in the valley. Once at the top the visibility was too poor for good skiing, so we opted for the Glacier cave tour....More

It was a wonderful experience, but felt it was WAY too expensive for the tour. Climbing up and down the ladders was not for the feint of heart, especially if you are tall.

Ok caves, quite tight in places so you are kitted out in waterproofs and its an interesting experience. Dont expect any stalactites or mites. But after a long hot hike it was a good cool destination.
