Description

With their surreal frozen curtains, luminous walls of icicles, and wonderous white-and-blue formations, the ice caves at Eisriesenwelt—nicknamed the World of Ice Giants—look straight out of a fantasy novel. Take a comfortable private car to Werfen, and then step into the chill of the caves for a fascinating peek at the this snowy setting.

After you're picked up from your hotel, ride out of Salzburg and into the rolling green landscapes of the Salzach Valley. Gaze up at the imposing 11th-century Hohenwerfen Castle, which sits perched high on a hill overlooking the valley below. Arrive in Werfen and hop into a cable car to ride up to the entrance of the Ice Caves. Make sure to wear a jacket—temperatures in the ice caves don't ever get above freezing, even in the summertime.

With a knowledgeable guide leading the way, step inside the world's largest ice cave, marveling at the mystical sculptures and formations created by water seeping down from the ground above into the frozen caverns below. See the towering Great Ice Embankment and the magnificent Posselt Tower stalagmite, and let your imagination run wild at Hymir's Castle, where cool blue stalactites form the Ice Organ. At the end of your tour, emerge back out into the warmth of day and meet back up with your driver for the peaceful return ride to Salzburg.

Awesome guide! Just a warning. This tour entails a lot of uphill walking and stairs climbing, so be prepared for a workout! Totally worth it though!
