The mighty Hintertux Glacier offers not only the highest located show cave of Europe, the Spannagel Cave, but also an accessible crevasse. The Glacier Bus 3, a cable car, takes you from the village of Tux to the mountain station at 3,250 m a.s.l. Just a few minutes away there's Nature's Ice Palace (Natur Eis Palast) with its glacial lake and the frozen waterfalls.
The ice cave is open all year round, and features a constant temperature of 0 degrees C, making it accessible with ski boots in winter as well as with warm clothing and sturdy shoes in summer. Several tours are on offer: the base tour with boat trip, an exclusive photo tour, stand up paddling on the glacial lake and ice swimming, a kayaking session and ice climbing.
New in the Nature's Ice Palace is the Excursion Deep Horizon to see the glacier from below, and the Scientific Tour with the discoverer of Nature's Ice Palace, Roman Erler. Have fun!
