For those just looking to sample what the cave has to offer, or those with less time, we offer a 4.5 hour "Explorer Tour". We can offer these tours year-round, in any weather because the cave is a constant 5 degrees Celsius, a comfortable temperature any time of the year.

We located a great company next to Solara Resort and the guides could have not been better. Our adventurous day was an experience to be remembered for a lifetime. Hiking up to start was cool the going into the cave was real cool say about 40-45 degrees Fahrenheit. We remained in the caves for about 3 hours or so and it was amazing. Definitely try this if you go to Canmore.

This was an amazing and awesome way to spend a day. As long as you are not claustrophobic I highly recommend this adventure. Be prepared to hike uphill about half an hour to get there. You will get dirty in the cave, but when I did the tour a jumpsuit was provided. If you are claustrophobic at all, do not do this tour.... It really dampens the adventure for the rest of the group. Remember to bring your camera but make sure it's safe for a dusty place!! If you've always wanted to cave but was afraid to go it alone, this is an excellent opportunity and no skill is necessary to do this. I did this back in February 2011 but I'm sure the experience is still just as awesome.

This was by far the most fun and adventure our family has had together! Our instructor was awesome (thank you Helene) and made both adults and children feel comfortable. Our girls had the biggest grins the whole time!

We totally recommend this tour. Both myself and my husband had never 'caved' before and I had never repelled or did anything remotely like this before. We had an awesome time and our guide Amy was quite fun - full of information and stories. She truly was an amazing guide, perhaps the best ever. ;) The day went so fast. You lose all track of time when you are underground!

I was doubting myself before the actual cave day, but found it to be quite fun climbing through-out the cave and squeezing in the tight spaces. I don't think you can get another experience like this one. DO IT! :)

*** A word of caution. Read the website. Watch the YouTube video. It's very honest about what to expect. It is an up-hill climb to the cave. Totally doable, of course, but just be fore-warned. Plus, you spend your time crawling around on your hands and knees inside the cave (not the entire time). ***

I'll attach a pic of our guide and myself as she was so much fun. :)
Thanks Rat's Nest! We will recommend you to anyone who travels out your way. :)

The guide was very knowledgable and helpful... learned a lot in a short amount of time. Hike there was UPHILL, be prepared. Was our first experience and had no idea what to expect.... got a lot out of it and it FAR exceeded expectations. We were ALMOST put off by the hard-to-find office but people knew what they were doing!
