  • Had a great time. A very "mom & pop" type site. Need better media exposure- better website. During the end if season, tours are only on the hour. Guide could use more knowledge, but she was fun. Gift ...  more »

  • I've been three times now with different people. About a 45 minute walk from base to and from cave. Wear good shoes with traction and dress warm, even if it's warm outside. The cave is cold. Not accessible by wheelchair or stroller. Come a bit early to check out the museum, or hang about afterwards. They only take CASH, last time I went. And TIP for the Tour guides!
  • This was a lot of fun and rally a neat place. Was not sure what to expect, but it turned out be be a worthwhile stop. I recommend it. But be prepared to walk uneven ground, uneven steps, and narrow dark cold passages.
  • Really neat ice cave in the desert. Parking is easy, also easy to find it once you put it on gps. Guide is very knowledgeable. Kids would like this place, a lot of geographic education
  • Very interesting. Never realized this could occur. So glad we stopped to check it out. Our guide was very knowledgeable
  • Cool (literally) place to visits, but not as exciting as I had hoped for.
