Looking for an epic day-long adventure near St Anthony, ID? While on our trip to dunes, we set out on dual-sport bikes to search for some so-called ice caves. I was skeptical that they were even worth the drive, but they blew our minds and far exceeded our expectations.
These frozen over lava tube caves seemed like they went on forever. A few spots were super tight where we had to crawl through, but many spots opened up and we could stand up. It was quite the experience! Check out the video.
If you are claustrophobic- this is not the place for you
What To Bring
Bring a couple including a headlamp. It is pitch black. (It’s a cave)
Your hands will be frozen if you don’t have gloves. It’s wet and it’s ice. The rock and ice floor will be sharp too.
Shoes with good traction
You’ll be walking through puddles, stepping and climbing on ice as well as rocks.
Your butt will freeze and you will get wet so bring a change of clothes or waterproof pants. It takes well over an hour to get to the end of the cave and return.
A helmet or hard shell hat would be a good idea as well.
Leaving the Rexburg, ID area, it’s about a 40-minute drive to the turnoff. Once there, it is roughly a 3.3-mile drive or ride down a dirt road that can be a bit rocky in some places. High clearance is recommended.
