It is a breakthrough from the research point of view, since it is intended to be a major center of interpretation of glaciers and global warming. In addition, for the more adventurous, it is also a great place for weddings and events.

The attraction has taken four years and it has cost 2.5 million dollars. We can make a first tour of its rooms thanks to this video.

The tour inside the cave lasts about an hour. The floor of the cave is made up of snow and ice, it is slippy and wet, so crampons for safety reasons are provided. In addition to the route through the cave, the tour ensures a stroll along the surface of the glacier.
