The Bears Cave was discovered in 1975, following the blasting of a marble quarry in the Chiscau massif and was put into tourist exploitation in 1980.

The Bear Cave is not remarkable for its size but for the phenomenal agglomeration of speleological formations, being unique in this respect among the caves arranged for tourism.

With a length of 720 m and a depth of 105 m, it hosts a block of ice with a volume of 75,000 m3 and an average thickness of 16 m, a glacier that also gives it its name. A particularly popular and visited cave that you must visit.
