New Mexico’s Land Of Fire And Ice Is A Marvel You Have To See To Believe

The Land of Fire and Ice is a family-run attraction in New Mexico that combines two impressive and contrasting natural wonders. The first marvel is an 800-foot deep crater left behind when the Bandera Volcano erupted. The second is a natural ice cave where the temperature never exceeds 31 degrees Fahrenheit. These two wonders are within a brief walk of each other, providing visitors with a truly unique experience.

The Land of Fire and Ice is located at 12000 Ice Caves Road in Grants. It’s open from March through October each year.

The cost of admission is $12 and there are military, senior, and AAA discounts available. Tickets for children under 12 years of age are $6.
