Know More about this tourYou'll be safely led by your knowledgeable, local guide into heart of the frozen canyon where its sheer limestone walls reach more than 30 meters above. The winter freeze has caused the raging flow of water, funneling through this narrow canyon, to be brought to a dramatic halt. Waterfalls that drop from the canyon rim are frozen mid-flow, cascading down into a spectacular spray of icy daggers.
Fitted with warm, waterproof winter boots and tread enhancing cleats, you will be comfortable and secure for the 4km leisurely icewalk. You will have plenty of time to absorb and photograph the majestic surroundings. During the tour, your local guide will reveal interesting geological facts while shedding light on the secrets held deep beneath the canyon floor.
Daily icewalks are offered at 9am and 1pm. Alternatively, join the 6pm 'Headlamp Tour' to experience the icewalk in twilight ambience. The tour duration is 3 hours which includes 2 hours of walking at a relaxed pace. Suitable for ages 7 and above.
