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). Once inside the info hut, you are shown a plan of the cave excavations, the highlights, and a full safety briefing , then issued with hard hats. Warning! Bring your gloves! Glacier ice is unlike your average ice. When touched, it is so cold it can cause ice burns - quite painful , so take care and listen to the guide. There are a number of steep ladders to negotiate upon which you must carefully descend backwards. It is well lit with good grippy pathways through the ice walls. The highlight of the tour is the 'Under the glacier ice boat tour' which is visually stunning. Oh and don't forget to take your camera for those stunning glacier shots, see attachments. All in all, a tour that's well worth it and a change from skiing . Just one of the many attractions around Hintertux . Enjoy!

It’s nice and naturally beautiful There are just a few things to be said: Going there one is going downhill, and after that visit going up back is not so easy, Also there are parts that are narrow , so if you do not like being in narrow places under the surface better not to go there Apart from that this is nice and interesting experience traveling in an ice cave next to under- mountain river

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. It turned out to be a real blessing the tour was brilliant and so was Paul our guide. We took our 8 & 11 year olds and they loved it. Make sure you have cash on you no cards up there.
