Product Description

Scarisoara Ice Cave is the biggest ice cave in the Apuseni Mountains of Romania.

The entrance to Scarisoara Ice Cave is a shaft, 48m deep and 60m wide. A stair of steep wooden and iron steps is winding around the shaft until it reaches the bottom. The hall at the ground is filled with ice all year round. There is nothing else but ice: the cave elements are made of ice. While many of the caves have stalactites and stalagmites, Scarisoara cave contains also a massive glacier with a volume of about 2.5 million cubic feet. It has never melted in 3,500 years. Exploring the cave leads you to The Church at the back, with intriguing pillar-like formations and with spectacular six meters high ice stalagmites.
