On Groupon right now, the Snowman's Adventure is only $29 for one person or $55 for two.

Or, bring the whole family, because even for four guests it's only $99! Though children must be over the age of 5 to participate.

All equipment is included in the cost of purchase, whether you do the Snowman's Adventure or opt for just a snowshoe through the woods.

Other Cave Tours include "The Explorer Tour," which is a two-hour long exploration of the cave and its smallest passages, or the "Geological Tour," offered specially for school groups. 

You can even SLEEP inside the cave!! Children have to be 8 years of age or older and the cave stays at 4 degrees Celsius so you're on the hook for bringing proper camping gear. There is the opportunity to make a bonfire and listen to stories about the history of the cave from your tour guide. 

A comment on the Groupon page gave the experience 5 out of 5 stars, saying:

"The cave was surprisingly better than expected. Be prepared to be patient with a bit of waiting between the 3 events. Snowshoe trails are in a beautiful and silent forest. Worth the Groupon rate for sure."
