  • We recently took this cave tour and it was much more like an adventure. Nice hike and then a caving first time experience. We both had middle aged spreads and could fit through most of the holes. I wa...  more »

  • Amazing experience! Our tour guide Max was awesome! You can tell he really loves what he gets to do for a living! You will see and do things that most will never get experience their entire life's. This is a must if you are in the Canmore area! Loved every minute of it!
  • Had an amazing experience down in Grotto mountain being toured by an awesome dude named Brent. He was a really great guide who loves his job, showing us all the interesting things to see around the cave and motivating us to some tight "squeezes" we probably wouldn't have done normally. If you've never gone caving this is definitely the way to try it out! Also, don't chicken out on the laundry shoot, it's lots of fun!
  • Our trip is a few months back but still worth reviewing. We had a great time. Staff and our guide where amazing. If you're considering going for the tour, this is for you: 1. Do it! It's pricy but worth it. 2. Try and get in with a small group. We were in a group of 4 and had a great time because we never had to wait too long for everyone to make it through the tough sections, and our guide was super flexible and let us do all the optional, fun stuff. We're really active and outdoorsy, but this still resulted in several days of sore legs and arms (and smiles). 3. It's rather chilly in the cave, and it's a humid cold. So layer up a bit more than you think you need. Have fun!
  • What an amazingly unforgettable experience!! Staff were all incredibly friendly, passionate, organized and knowledgable. Definitely challenging on a number of levels, but nothing that couldn't be worked through. And the sense of accomplishment at the end of it all...wow! My partner and I enjoyed this so much we're considering getting some caving certification so we can see the "wild" side of Rat's Nest
  • Amazing experience!! Very organized and knowledgeable. Doug was a fantastic tour guide. Definitely worth trying the adventure tour even if you are a little hesitant (as I was!) A highlight of our trip!!

Where to stay in Canmore

Resorts and mountain lodges represent the majority of places to stay in Canmore. Most lie just off the Trans-Canada Highway, allowing for convenient access to the surrounding area's natural attractions. Look deeper in town--towards the Bow River--to enjoy the most scenic sightseeing Canmore has to offer, straight from your hotel window. Remember to reserve in advance between June and September, as the town attracts most of its visitors during the warmer months.
