Dobsinska Ice Cave, Dobsina
(3.3/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Tour subterranean tunnels filled with a host of formations at Dobsinska Ice Cave, part of a World Heritage-listed series of caverns. Tucked away in a secluded part of the Western Carpathian Mountains, the cave reaches nearly 1.5 km (0.9 mi) back into the rock. Join a guided tour, the only way to access the cave, and get up-close looks at towering stalagmites, hanging stalactites, and other ice structures as you walk the tour path. By volume, the ice makes it one of the largest caves of its kind in the world. Temperatures within hover around freezing year-round and the ground is slippery, so dress accordingly and wear sensible walking shoes. Plan your visit to Dobsinska Ice Cave and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Dobsina trip generator.

  • While not as impressive as the Domica cave, the Dobsinska ice cave is phenomenal. The guided tour (in slovak unfortunately) takes you through a maze of gigantic slabs of ice. Similar to the other cave...  more »
