  • You can only visit with one tour company but it's a brilliant experience! You'll get a wet bum and hands from crawling and sliding over ice as you make your way deep into the cave, but spectacular natural shapes await you... I won't say any more, go see for yourself!
  • You can not go in that cave for yourself. You pay a guide at Saga travel. The prices are exorbitant! The track in 4 x 4 to reach the entrance of the cave is horrible. There are a few difficult passages to reach the bottom of the cave, but the guide will help you a lot. The cave is very beautiful. It was a good experience!
