The Nature's Ice Palace in the Hintertux Glacier is a worldwide unique natural jewel and an ideal year-round excursion destination for the whole family. The Nature's Ice Palace was discovered by chance by Roman Erler !!!! The entrance to the ice cave is only a 3 to 4-minute walk from the top Station of the Gletscherbus 3. Guided tours mean “Please come in!” into the wonderful world deep below the ski slope. The visitors explore a walk-in crevasse with magical ice stalactites, huge sparkling ice crystals, frozen waterfalls and even a glacial lake.
Nature’s Ice Palace has a constant temperature of 0 degrees 365 days of the year. Warm clothing and sturdy shoes are required for the tour, which is easy to negotiate – even wearing ski boots. Nature’s Ice Palace fascinates both adult glacier fans as well as families with children aged 6 and over with its‘ cool, natural beauty. Visitors to the ice caves can choose between different tours accompanied by experienced guides: The Anniversary tour takes 60 minutes and shows the most beautiful attractions held captive within the glacier. The Children’s tours are also possible for groups of at least 10, whereby advance reservation is required. The ice cave is open all year round and can be visited in any weather. A visit to Nature’s Ice Palace can also be easily combined with a ski day on the Hintertux Glacier or with a trip to see the views from the Panorama Terrace.
