On this adventure tour, you will not only visit the Blue Ice Cave but also go on a hike on the glacier where you will get a the chance to explore ice tunnels, moulins and other beautiful ice features. It is such a unique experience to be able to stand inside an ancient glacier and the picturesque blue ice will make you feel like you are in a fairy tale.
