An Ice cave is an old water passageway inside the glacier. The ice caves are accessible (when our team make it safe to enter) when it empties itself when temperatures go down below 0°C, no rain is expected for few weeks and snow is not blocking the entrance. The glacier is constantly on the move so when you are standing in the ice cave you can sometimes hear the ice creaking.
