Two Day Trek to Hundalm Ice and Stalactite Cave

This two day trek of the Kitzbühel Alps provides hikers gorgeous views of Großglockner Mountain and the Zillertal and Tux Alps, and a peek at the area's fascinating geology.You will get to a world that few get to see and experience, up to 45 meters beneath the earth's surface. Glowing blue walls of ice, light seeping through cracks and holes, rushing and dripping water—a discovery tour through the cave with a trained guide is an exciting experience that will be remembered for years to come. The ice formations, some of which are up to 350,000 years old, evoke feelings of awe and wonder.
