We did this cave tour in the middle of winter in December. This was the first caving experience for all of us in the group. We were 5 members in the group. We took the 6 hour tour and drove to the cave site. There was a half an hour hike to the cave opening. I am extremely claustrophobic so... More

My son (13) and I loved it! Out of all our activities on our 16 day vacation, this was by far our most unique activity. Calvin, our guide was great. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We loved the part where we turned off our head lamps and the cave became pitch black. The one negative that I must say... More

My friend and I did the Explorer tour, and although we were nervous about what the tour entailed it turned out to be great fun. The hike up the mountain was great, as the guide took her time and told interesting information along the way. Inside the caves was great. We were underground for 2 hours. The perfect amount of...

My friend and I went on the 4 hour caving adventure while in Alberta and had an absolute blast! It was the best part of my trip. We are both in our 20s and in decent shape but still found this adventure challenging. It was more physically demanding than I anticipated but was well worth the energy. We had Nelson... More

I booked to go on the adventure tour on my own and had a brilliant time (don't be put off if you are on your own). This was an incredible experience. The activity takes up a big chunk of the day but is totally worth it. I have only previously visited the Cango Caves in South Africa which was great,... More

Just got back from the 4 hour explorer tour, what a blast! Our guide was Amy and she was awesome, super informative about the caves and surrounding area. She knew just when to push you and how much. I am a little claustrophobic but did all the squeezes including the "Challenge Squeeze" no problem, they aren't as bad as they... More

A must do tour for anyone who loves an adventure. Our guide Calvin was a lot of fun and very enthusiastic and knowledgable about the caves. He tailored the tour to the group which made it even better. Very physically challenging!

This was my first time caving and it was fantastic. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable and fun. They tailored the day to the group- letting everyone who was comfortable try all the options and squeeze while those who were a little nervous could skip those. They provided information on geology, history and the full extent of the cave. I will... More
