  • Traveling with my 13 yr old grandson, this was a perfect side trip for us on our Route 66 adventure. Be patient as you drive toward the volcano and enjoy the scenery. The hike to the volcano was lovel...  read more »
  • When we were arriving to the location we could tell the land was different and you could see signs of lava rock along the highway. It seems lonely but you have to go inside the cabin to purchase ticke...  read more »
  • We went to the ice cave today, (did not hike the volcanoes). The price of admission was $24 for two adults. We only wanted to see the ice cave. The hike was nice, a well groomed path with interesting ...  read more »
  • My son and I made a point to visit the volcano caldera and ice cave while on a Route 66 vacation in 2015. It was a bit off the beaten path, but what a treat. The hike in August was pleasant and the view of the volcano caldera was fantastic. The trail is lava rock, so bring some athletic shoes, flip flops or sandals will be a little uncomfortable. The ice cave was a welcome change from the summer heat and the stairs were not too steep to negotiate. The staff were welcoming as well. I recommend visiting this site in the spring, summer or fall!
  • We took a group of photographers here. The ice cave to me was very interesting but not really a great spot for photos, except to remember the visit. I loved the area and the scenery but not everyone shared my enthusiasm. Be forewarned: there are a lot of stairs to get down to the cave. Not everyone in our group had an easy time with that. For me, it was more interesting from a geologic point of view and for the scenery around the ice caves.
  • This place is so magical. I know it sounds funny but once your there and begin walking thru the paths, you will understand. Been there x3.
  • Ice cave is a cool phenomenon but the site itself was a little disappointing. The volcano was awesome.
  • Price seemed a little steep to see some holes in the ground but the scenery on the hikes to the ice cave and to the volcano were fantastic.
