A breathtaking cave when it’s cold. Eben Ice Caves, Upper Peninsula, Michigan
You won’t find The Eben Ice Caves in the spring, summer, or fall. They only take shape during the frigid winters of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. When temperatures drop, water freezes as it flows over the canyon cliffs and turns into beautiful ice formations. The spaces between the 50-foot-tall cliffs and the walls of ice allow hikers to go spelunking and exploring. Make sure to bring your crampons and hiking boots if you make the trip, but be on the lookout for bears, moose, and wolves.
