About
Rappel into Rat’s Nest Cave for a day of adventurous exploring, then crawl, climb, slide, and squeeze through an underground maze on your way to a beautiful grotto pool. Travel with an experienced caving guide, which means you don't need caving experience to go deep underground, seeking out places that few visitors reach.

Absolutely Amazing Experience
Sep 2021
This is an absolutely amazing experience. I loved every part of it including the rapelle, the squeezes, seeing all of the beautiful formations inside of The Grotto, and learning about the cave. I was lucky to be with Tiffany and Shy, who are incredible guides. Both of them are good natured and kind people, and are incredibly knowledgeable and skilled. They fit the tour to my abilities and interests, making it a fun, interesting and comfortable experience - I was well taken care of in all regards. I would go back into that cave with them any day - there are so many incredible things to explore and learn about, and it is just so cool.

Worth every penny. Awesome staff. Super fun cave to explore.
Oct 2021 • Friends
It is worth the time and money to do the Adventure Tour over the Explorer tour. The repelling and extra squeezes are the most fun. We loved our guide Hyun Ho , incredibly knowledgeable and kept us feeling very safe in the cave. 100% worth the price.

Epic Adventure
Sep 2021
In a week of fun that included a glacier walk, hiking, ziplining, and skydiving, this was my favorite. Absolutely epic experience and just an amazing tour of a literally hidden part of nature. It was a good challenge, both physically and mentally at times, and also unforgettable.

I also want to give a big shout out to our guide, HyunHo. He was really incredible. For such a young age he was knowledgeable, mature and trustworthy. He took great care of us both physically and mentally, and really knew how to show us a good time. I highly recommend him!

Incredible experience!
Sep 2021 • Couples
My husband and I toured with John and it was the best possible experience we could have asked for. John was highly knowledgeable about the cave, plants, and animals along the hike and was able to answer any questions we had. It was clear that he was putting his guests first and was consistently checking in on us and ensuring we felt safe and were having fun. We absolutely loved this tour!

Most Incredible Experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
This was the most incredible experience of my life — and I am very adventurous! Canmore Cave Tours was totally worth it and we would for sure do it again! Our guide, Max, made the entire group feel so comfortable and safe! He knew so much about the caves and was very passionate and inspirational!!! Highly recommend these cave adventures!!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Even the hike itself going up to the cave entrance was awesome.

Great Birthday Trip!
Aug 2021 • Family
This was my second time on the adventure tour to rats nest cave. I brought my 13 year old daughter this time and we had an amazing time! We had Alex as our guide, he was very personable, qualified, knowledgeable and fun! Tried out a few different areas than my trip in 2018, found out how ‘the treacherous slab’ got got its name! Beautiful, challenging I’ve got the caving bug and can’t wait to go back!
