Exploring Underground Ice Caves

with No Comments

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.

What To Bring

 

Flashlight!

Bring a couple including a headlamp. It is pitch black. (It’s a cave)

Waterproof Gloves

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.

Waterproof Pants

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.

Caving Helmet

A helmet or hard shell hat would be a good idea as well.

Getting There

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.

Do more with less! That is my motto lately. I love getting outdoors and exploring new places, usually on my KTM motorcycle. My wife, Anna, and I recently bought and built out a Sprinter van to do more of the things we love. Traveling and seeing new places is always at the top of our to-do list.
