Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    If you do not have enough time for visiting all of them we recommend you to skip Demänovská Ice Cave or if you do not want to travel a lot you can skip Dobšinská Ice Cave and stayed just in Demänovská valley.

  • Packing tips?

    The temperature in the coldest cave is around 0 all year round, so it is advisable to dress well.

  • Transportation Tips?

    The best and easyst option is to do it by car as all caves have parking place very near to the entrance and you can handle all of them by one day. But if you have anough time or do not have a car you can visit Dobšinská Ice Cave by train (unforgettable experience) or by bus and two others by train to Liptovský Mikuláš and then by bus.
