Ice cave in the Rhone glacier

Nowhere else in Europe can you drive so close to a glacier as here. Easily accessed and always fascinating, the 100-metre long blue ice tunnel and ice chamber has been cut new into the Rhone glacier every year since around 1870. Cutting the ice cave takes about four weeks. The grotto is just short of 2300m above sea level on the Valais side, three km below the Furka pass. The entrance is approx. 180 metres from the Furka pass road and Hotel-Restaurant Belvédère.
