The access to Scarisoara glacier-cave is either by car or by a nice hike in the beautiful scenery of Apuseni Mountains. The cave hosts the biggest underground glacier in Romania, which doesn't melt during the year, not even in summer. It is worth visiting!

Extraordinary absolutely everything. From the man who welcomes you to the flower pot. Speechless. Nature is the true soul that represents us. Their example, of those who support this wonder of nature in understanding what tourism means must be proved. BRAVO thousand times.

We visited the cave before noon. The descent is done on metal stairs, so ensure proper foot placement and hold the handrails at all times. Inside the cave it's cold so get some warm clothes. The guide is providing detailed information.

The good thing is that there is asphalt up near the cave, you climb through the gorge Ordancusei, where the scenery is wonderful. Rent a car in Oradea and Cluj and enjoy the accessible caves in Apuseni.
