    It is considered the most beautiful cave network in the world, but you'll have a long journey to reach it. This spectacular Marble Cathedral, an intricate system of water-filled caverns, is set in the General Carrera lake in Chile's Patagonia - the 2nd largest freshwater lake in South America. But to reach this remote place, visitors must fly from the capital Santiago, 800 miles to the next nearest large city, Coyhaique, and then drive on challenging dirt roads 200 miles south to the lake.

Belize ... This is called the ATM Tour or ATM Cave. It's amazing, you swim in with headlamps on and climb rocks and ladders to get to different levels. On each 'platform' you observe different artifacts. It's pitch dark inside with flowing water. Once in a lifetime tour, there are 25 guides that go through special training to be allowed to take tourists in the cave.

Crystal Cave: located on the frozen lagoon of the Svínafellsjökull Glacier in Skaftafell, Iceland. It is only possible to access it when the lagoon is frozen. The centuries old ice has had almost all of the air pressed out of the ice; once air has been pressed out the ice turns into a magically blue crystal like ice.
