  • Very cool caves and very natural. Cool to climb and squeeze through some places alongside our through streams. Beautiful surroundings as well. Not too touristy. Highly recommend!
  • The lake that is next to the caves is beautiful and there are several trails you can walk around. You can only access the big caves with a guide in order to protect them. They offer 6 different guided tours with different durations and intensity levels. Three out of the six tours are only offered during summer. The tour includes a helmet and if you ask nicely the rubber boots, which are really helpful when crossing water streams and heavy snow.
  • We hiked the trails and peeked into the caves . Great hike not one I would take a stroller on so those with young young kids this may not be for u. Loved the hike and will be back to go into the caves
  • The tour we were on is geared towards school aged children. Exploring the cave was fun but really not worth the money they charge. That said if you have never been inside a cave it is a novel experience so I recommend it on that itself.
  • My family had a blast crawling through caves. I found out I was clastrophobic. The whole area is beautiful. Spend the money to do a guided tour.
