Visited the ice cave with my daughter. It’s so cleverly done and I was really amazed at some of the sculptures. If you are going up the mountain it’s definitely worth a visit.

Been coming to ADH for 13+years and can't believe we have never been. Went today, and were totally amazing by how good and detailed the sculptures are. Cheap to get in too. A must do activity if you're coming to ADH x

Right at the top of DMC 2 a great ice cave is created every year. Very clever how this is made and some beautiful carvings inside only 5€ per person so really worth a visit.

We needed a break from the slopes so popped in. The sculptures are fantastic and it only costs 5euro each. If you're not skiing you can access as a pedestrian via the DMC gondola. You need the second stop! When we had finished, we decided...More
