Snežna Jama (Snow Cave) is the only Ice Cave in Slovenia which is a show cave. There is anothe ices cave called Velika Ledenika Jama, which is open to the public, but not guided. This one has guides, which stay at the cave and live at the entrance during summer. That is because the road to the cave is an adventure and it takes more than an hour to drive the 10 kilometers on the 'narrow and winding single lane road. At first it is paved, then it is gravel road, and at the end its patch gravel road with dirt road pieces. Not the road where you want to drive during bad weather, so we recommend to visit this cave only on days with good weather and start early to get there. You should start at the turnoff from the road at least at 2 pm.
The cave itself is reached on a short walk from the end of the road. The outside and inside the cave is about the same, not difficult, but requires good sturdy shoes and some ability to walk in the mountains. The cave is cold, around zero, so bring warm clothes. A wind protection is a very good idea.
