Detailed route description

The Demänovská Ice Cave is one of the only natural phenomena in the world. Its beauty is admired by thousands of tourists from all over the world every year. This natural attraction is accessible by about 750-meter long serpentine walkway supplemented by information boards, forming a nature trail. The boards were created and operated by the Správa slovenských jaskýň (Slovak Caves Administration) and therefore they are thematically focused on local natural conditions (forest communities, animals or the cave system). Written information on the boards are in Slovak, English and German.

The linear, self-service nature trail focusing on natural science and conservation is located in an attractive tourist area and contributes appropriately to the environmental education of the public. This easy – medium demanding and self-guided trail runs along a serpentine access path to the cave, and from the parking lot, it can be completed in half to three-quarters of an hour.

Accessible and parking

Regular bus service is available on the route Demänovská Valley and Liptovský Mikuláš, which is relatively well-timed to meet the tourists´ needs. The starting point is situated at a bus stop. There is also a spacious car park, for which visitors are charged during the summer season.

Accommodation and food facilities

At the beginning of the nature trail, there is a hotel and the Riverside Restaurant where you can refresh yourself. The widest selection of accommodation and gastronomic facilities within the Liptov region is directly in the Demänovská Valley.
