"Fiery Cave" Tour at the Hintertux Glacier

A great winter experience for the whole family!

No matter whether you are on foot or on skis – you can experience three glacier highlights in just one day on this new tour.

Meeting point is at 12.00 noon at the Spannagelhöhle office, which you will find inside the Spannagelhaus. After getting changed and receiving initial instructions, the first glacier highlight begins in the company of a trained cave guide: the approx. one-hour tour through the Spannagel Cave, the only marble cave to be found in the Central Alps. After only a few steps, you will find yourself in the cave, directly beneath the ski slope. Visitors always find themselves in awe, when they discover the extensive cave system that is located here on the Hintertux Glacier. After taking a souvenir photo, it’s time to head onto the second glacier highlight:
The table is already laid for you at Spannagelhaus, where tour participants can look forward to the legendary, fiery Spannagel Fondue and palates are pampered in this extraordinary cave setting with unique panorama. As dessert – in fitting style - a marble cake made to grandma's recipe is served, of course, in reference to the omnipresent marble cave.

Then at around 16.00 hrs, a 600 hp Pistenbully snow groomer pulls up outside Spannagelhaus to take participants on a snowcat ride to the Tuxer Fernerhaus, as a crowning finale to this Glacier Tour.

As an unforgettable glacier day draws to a close, participants can take a myriad of new memories home with them, be it those created during the cave tour, the fabulous glacier panorama or the power-fuelled ride with a Pistenbully snow groomer!
