Description

Melting water channels are formed in the glaciers during the summer. In winter these channels freeze, creating spectacular ice caves we can visit. After about 1 1/2 hours walk with snow shoes we enter the ice cave and dress in helmet and head lamp. Now we will enter the freezed melting channles. We may have to crawl during some parts of the trip, so the trip is not suitable for those with back problems or claustrophobia. Duration app. 5 hours. Limit of age: 8 years
