Glacier Cave

Begin your day with a visit to Glacier Cave. Explore the world of silence as you walk along a path made of ice, formed over 5,000 years ago. Accessible from the Titlis station, the walkway begins at the surface of the glacier and extends for 150 metres. Descending ten metres below the surface of the glacier, you are welcomed in a mysterious ice-blue world of wonder. The cave temperature remains consistent at -1.5 degrees Celsius, so be sure to dress warm!
