How the Snow Cave visit is taking place
You are going to enter the underground world of the Snow Cave accompanied by an experienced caver – a guide who will provide you with all the information for a safe visit before entering the cave.
We recommend that you reach the cave at least 15 minutes before the desired visiting hour. The cave is accessible only with a guide. Guided tours of the cave take place at the announced time, regardless of the number of visitors. For the best experience of the cave, we limited the number of visitors to a maximum of 25 people per group.
At the time of the tour, a guide will accompany you to the entrance of the cave. You can leave your backpacks, hiking poles and your pets at your own risk in front of the cave entrance. We advise you to take your personal belongings (wallet, personal documents, telephone) with you.
In our experience, for most visitors, the most challenging part is the entrance or descent into the cave, where you climb down on a metal ladder for 10 m. In total, you descend to the Ice Hall by as much as 40 m.
The entrance to the cave, about 150 m, is illuminated by electric lighting, further along, you will experience the cave by the light of carbide lamps (1 lamp for 3 persons). The use of ones own lamps and cameras without a tripod is allowed. The paths through the cave are not paved but well-trodden. The walking trail for visitors is fenced from time to time and can be even one meter wide or more at some points when the group makes a stop. There may also be some ice on the way in particular areas, which the guide will always warn you upfront.
