Dobsinska Ice Cave, Dobsina

#3 of 22 in Nature in Kosice Region
World heritage site · Cave · Nature / Park
Tour subterranean tunnels filled with a host of formations at Dobsinska Ice Cave, part of a World Heritage-listed series of caverns. Tucked away in a secluded part of the Western Carpathian Mountains, the cave reaches nearly 1.5 km (0.9 mi) back into the rock. Join a guided tour, the only way to access the cave, and get up-close looks at towering stalagmites, hanging stalactites, and other ice structures as you walk the tour path. By volume, the ice makes it one of the largest caves of its kind in the world. Temperatures within hover around freezing year-round and the ground is slippery, so dress accordingly and wear sensible walking shoes. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Dobsina trip simple and quick.

  • After the long tour to the top of the mountain it was amazing to see the ice. Download the PDF from the page they suggest before getting down to the cave, because it will be easier to follow. The cave has a lot of stairs, so prepare for that too. I personally loved it. In my opinion the proper clothing pays off. So no matter how hot is outside bring some warm footwear and clothes with you.
  • Once you make a step from the gate, you are being hit by a very cold breeze. Be dressed property for a low temperature. The tour takes about 30-40min. Impressive cave especially the tunnels carved inside the ice. They only have guides that speak Slovak.
