He said that although the icy wonderland is close to a ski resort it’s very difficult to find the low entrance located in the middle of a huge crevice.

Christoph, 36, said: “It was absolutely amazing in the caves, You feel the different temperatures and see different textures but it’s also kind of scary knowing that you are 300m inside an ice cave with 30m of thick ice above you.”
