A trio of explorers visited stunning ice caves that look like they’re from another planet.
Stefan Staub was one of three people to visit the ethereal valley of Roseg Glacier in Switzerland on January 4.
Along with Michael Ronald Wagner and Fabio Schock, the group marvelled at the wave-like patterns created by the thick walls of ice.
Huge chunks of deep blue ice meet smooth pebbles in the cavern which was lit by a stream of light shining through a hole in the ceiling.
Stefan said: “We are adventure experts but have never seen natural beauty like this before.
“It was a deep snow snowshoe walk, which took longer than three hours one way.
“The path was over a frozen lake.
“The larger cave was like a cathedral.
“The combination of ice, light, wind and water is beautiful.
“It is incredible what nature gives us.
“It left us speechless and we definitely want to go back to search more ice caves.”
