I lived in this area my whole life. For the past 40 years. I first went to polar caves when I was 5 years old. I last went this past summer, and many times in between. It is awesome! It has ice in the innermost cave that never melts. It's there 12 months out of the year. There's awesome little... More

A fabulous place to visit. Going through the caves is such fun and practically everyone can do it (som are short, others longer), but there is always an alternative external route to choose if you prefer. Our kids loved it and they are 16 + 22!! Younger kids will adore it even more. There is also a deer enclosure and... More

I visited with my husband and 4 year old son, and we had a great time! The caves were challenging to climb through in a great way!

Our guide, Tucker, informed us that most 3rd graders go to the Polar Caves Park for their 3rd grade class trip. It is a lot of fun for children and adults. The caves are awesome and the New Hampshire scenery is beautiful!

This has something for every member of your family. The caves are terrific for the kids and adults to climb though. If you have trouble climbing though it is not for you. They also have a sugar house to see and deer to feed. The also had some tropical looking birds there to see. It is a great take in... More

Had a great time, the coolness of the 'caves' was quite refreshing. Lots and lots of steps but lots of seats too. I have bad knees and had no problem as it is very well laid out. Traveled after school started so had the place pretty much to ourselves in a Friday, go, have fun, you will like it.

We came to the polar cave after seeing the flume gorge, and even when we pulled in to the lot and bought tickets I was thinking this seemed like a tourist trap. Proceed further. Past the deer (which are really cute but that's not why you are here). The caves are incredible and we happened to be lucky enough to... More

We are four adults and we were truly surprised hwo much fun we had discovering this maze of caves. Usually caves are something you go into and admire more or less, but some of these caves are more like a fitness center! The grounds are beautifully kept and it was one of our highlights in the White Mountains.

Beautiful grounds. Fun feeding the animals. The caves were lots of fun (and exercise) to go through. Make sure you wear closed shoes with good traction.

The walkways and caves here were great fun. They also had some deer to feed and a great giant chair for some photos. We had a wonderful time moving about the caves here, you only need to be able to duck to get through and there are pathways around if you want to skip the cave altogether. While this was... More
