Ice Cave


A glacier cave is a cave formed within the ice of a glacier. Most glacier caves are started by water running through or under the glacier. This water often originates on the glacier’s surface through melting, entering the ice at a moulin and exiting at the glacier’s snout at base level.

Some glacier caves are formed b geothermal heat from volcanic vents or hotsprings beneath the ice.
