In this case, you will visit other cave-like formations such as glacier arches and moulins. Your guide will try to get you as close to the ice cave entrance as possible and you will do some hiking around the area to create a memorable experience. The drive in the large super jeep will also be a lot of fun.

Please only book this tour if you like this as an alternative trip plan in case the ice cave is not accessible on your travel day.
