Canmore Cave Tours

Get off the beaten track and venture into the heart of Grotto Mountain with a knowledgeable tour guide. Canmore Cave Tours offers natural history tours into a wild, undeveloped cave near Canmore, Alberta. 

Discover how caves are formed, find out how animals and humans use caves, examine stalactites, stalagmites, and fossils. Learn about the geology of the pictureque Bow Valley, and immerse yourself in an amazing underground world, etched and sculpted over hundreds of thousands of years.

Explorer Tour: 4.5 Hours, with approximately 2 hours underground. Tour includes an introduction to the cave, and a shorter tour past pre-historic bones and ancient cave formations.

Adventure Tour: 6 Hours, with approximately 4 hours underground. A longer and more challenging tour, the Caver will rappel 18m through a chute inside the cave and a number of squeezes along the way.
