I took my 7 and 10 year old children here on a mid summer Monday morning. I had read the reviews so I kind of knew what to expect. The attraction had many of the typical white mountain things: animals to view and feed, gift shop, and picnic area. The caves were pretty cool; my kids were very uninterested in... More

This is our third year coming with our 4 & 5 year olds. All year they ask, "when can we go to Polar Caves?". They love going through the caves and paths here. It is a easy hike as everything is on a boardwalk or stairs/ ladders.

We stopped by for a visit to the Polar Caves on Saturday, August 23rd. We were on a family vacation with 4 adults and 4 kids, ages 3, 6, 9 and 14. We all thoroughly enjoyed the adventure of going through all of the 9 caves. It was fun and a must do if you're looking for some bonding time.... More

This attraction is a series of rock formations in the side of a mountain that you are allowed to walk, or mostly crawl through. Myself, the wife, and our two kids 23 and 12 went through here in about two hours. Neither myself or my wife are in any kind of good shape, so we bypassed several of the tighter,... More

Polar Caves is really quite the interesting adventure for the kids. Involves quite a bit of walking up and down stairs. The kids get to explore and experience natural rock caves along the unguided path. Each cave has a story and a difficulty rating. Our 8 and 13 year old easily did all of them. Price was approximately $65 for... More

We took my 4 year old to the Polar caves and we had a lot of fun. While there are a lot of stairs, even on a hot day, there is shade from the trees and the caves are a good 10-20 degrees cooler than being in the sun. Keep in mind that when you are in the caves, the... More

We got there ten minutes after they opened and the place to ourselves. The 6 year old grandson led the way with reasonable supervision and all got a nice little hiking and clambering workout. Going back next year and letting the 4 year old lead. Great fun. Take some quarters along for the animal feed machines and get deer spit... More

Visited last summer and had a blast. We went early and were the only ones out in the caves so we could take our time. They have little spots up high where you can look out around you, great views. Try the Lemon Squeeze!

We've been going to the Polar Caves for years. http://www.polarcaves.com Things to know about this attraction... 1. It may seem like its a good idea to go to the "Polar Caves' on a hot day but it is not. There are a lot stairs and climbing that will just make you hotter. If you want to cool off go to... More

Without a doubt, Polar Caves is the most fun a family can share in the White Mountains! Laughing as we experienced the caves' history and secrets first-hand, we really appreciated the ability to explore and learn at our own pace - and the staff are the most friendly, helpful, and encouraging we've met so far in New England! Thank you... More
