Banff Summer Cave Tours

Tour Description:

This tour will see you climbing, crawling and squeezing through the infamous Rat’s Nest Cave. A 1/2 hour hike through pine forests and canyons will lead you to the cave entrance. After changing into caving equipment and reviewing safety practices, you will enter the cave to enjoy a natural history interpretation of this fascinating underground world. Our fully experienced, interpretive guides will lead you through twisted passageways, etched and sculptured by water, to large underground chambers and a pool grotto. No experience is necessary as full instruction is given by the guide.

Banff Travel Cave Tours

Explore the depths of the Canadian Rockies by adventuring into the limestone cave on Grotto Mountain with tours offered by Banff Travel. Highly trained and experienced guides will lead you through thousands of years of history told by the carved limestone.

Discover deep caverns, ancient fossils, and mineral formations through the guided treks in the cave. The adventure tour offers a rappel experience from an 18m (60ft) drop that allows participants to traverse through narrow passageways. The explorer tour offers a similar itinerary without the rappel.

Banff Travel suggests that participants should be physically active and wear light shoes with moderately warm clothing. Make sure to bring a water bottle and a camera to document your adventure.
