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

So, the grandkids and I pull in on July 3rd around 10am and pleased to see only a handful of cars and, ohoh...3 schoolbuses... well it is a hot and humid day, but they were excited. I can't believe how poorly run this place is...the staff let all the groups of busses go out one after the other with no... More

Thanks for expressing your opinion on how we run our business. I will let you know that teenage guide, the main guide on the platform, and the person that took your call at the front desk while you were standing in line all reported back to me. We did get together after the busy day to discuss your concerns. You... More

This is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon or not raining. It was fun with the family. We very much enjoyed navigating through the caves and walking the paths. They have cute little shops and we even had some cinnamon glazed pecans which were delicious.

My 9-year old daughter went here on a school field trip and wanted me and her 14 year old teenage brother to go with her. My son was very resistant and thought it would be boring. I can say we all had a good time and even my teen liked it. We enjoyed the maze of steps leading around and... More

Back in '82 I visited this attraction; it was OK but not great. Wow! what a surprise to see all the changes. Walkways are beautifully constructed and the signage is hand carved and informative. The self guided tour worked well for us; the caves are well lighted and exciting to go through. Sometimes the children returned for extra fun. We... More

It was the first week of vacation and I really wanted to go here. I had a bunch of children with me ages: 9, 11, 14 and 16. Everybody had a great time. But I'd like to offer some advice. 1. Bring a picnic lunch. They have a great place to eat it. 2. Do not wear white. The caves... More

If you come here be sure to wear comfy shoes and wear a hoodie if you don't want to get dirty climbing in and out of the caves. This was so much fun, especially the lemon squeeze! We got there when they first opened and a little rainy out so hardly anyone was there so we had the caves to... More

We were looking for something to do in the area, and this was recommended by someone who used to live there. We certainly didn't expect it to be as fun as it was! Both middle-aged couples had a blast! It was challenging, but definitely worth doing. Also, try the fudge in the gift shop!
