Private Tour: Werfen Ice Caves Adventure from Salzburg

6 h
About this activity
Meet your private guide outside your Salzburg hotel and get comfortable in an 8-seater luxury minivan for a 1-hour drive south through the Salzach Valley and the Tennen Mountains (Tennengebirge) section of the Alps. Arriving in the market town of Werfen in the historical Pongau region, stop to admire Hohenwerfen Castle, an iconic hilltop castle used as the backdrop in many films.

Enter the Werfen Ice Caves (own expense), a vast underground labyrinth of icy caverns extending more than 26 miles (42 km) through the heart of Hochkogel mountain. Though officially discovered in 1879, according to Austrian legend locals knew about Eisriesenwelt long before, but they never explored it because they believed it was the entrance to Hell.

Take a cable car and walk through the caves, pausing to take in the mysterious caverns and surreal ice formations. Learn about the history, formation and discovery of the caves from your guide. As this is a private tour, you can tailor the pace to your needs.

After experiencing this breathtaking natural wonder, journey back to central Salzburg, where your tour concludes.

Ice caves amazing. Panorama tours is pathetic. Once you get to top, two lines for English vs German. We waited over hour. Tour is listed as 9:30-3:30. We got back to Salzburg at 3:40. Told to pay for extra hour even though only 10 minutes late and ee had to wait up top. Scam!

We had the best tour guide which makes or breaks a tour. The Werfen Ice Caves were worth every penny. Beautiful views. Wear warm clothes! Private tours are the way to go. We definitely recommend this tour!
