  • A few passages forced to come to this cave under the glacier ice! The train, the gondola and the 500 a few steps. There may be a short wait but it is reasonable. When you come with the train will rather see views of the glacier and the small cave to the crystals instead of going direct to the cave. The descent is paced very nice views and guidance (dates) on the evolution of the melting of the glacier. Downhill you crossed those who date back to feet and so that the skiers, so watch and gently! Arrived at the cave maybe you will be impressed by the beauty of ice set off by lighting... I've been! The tower is not long indeed, but enough to be aware of the evolution of the glacier and our responsibility on the situation. The ascent is much harder, no need to tell you to take it easy... you will have done your sport of the day. Get good shoes!

  • A lot of waiting to take the tickets at € 31 then a lot waiting to board the train. The journey by train is nothing extraordinary can arrive on-site still waiting to take the cable car. The cave is very artificial and not extraordinary at all, she doesn't deserve the detour nor the price and still less many markets.

  • Very beautiful Cave of ice visited this summer... Complete ascent by cable car. For the descent you stopped to set course to finish the downhill on Belle-Plagne walk.
