Rhone Glacier and Ice Grotto

Rhone Glacier and Ice Grotto

Did you know that the Ice Grotto is more than 100 meters long at the beginning of the season in June and it melts more than 30 meters over the course of the summer.
An easily walkable 100-meter blue ice tunnel with an ice chamber that has been carved out of the glacier each year since about 1870. Nowhere else in Europe can you get so close to a glacier as in the Rhone Glacier's Ice Grotto.

The grotto is just under 2,300 meters above sea level on the Valais side, 3 km beneath the top of the Furka Pass in the community of Belvédère, about 180 meters from Furkapassstrasse and Hotel Belvédère. Enjoy the panoramic glacier viewing platform. Opening soon are the Gletschersee platform and the Glacier Educational Trail.
