  • If you are moderately fit, strong, and flexible; have no extreme fear of close or dark spaces; and have any interest in pushing your limits then sign up for this tour right away. Ryan, our tour guide,...  more »
  • it was amazing! an easy short hike to the cave will lead you to an exciting adventure inside. I would go again. A must do in canmore. The trail has washed out due to rain so we had a more scenic hike....  more »
  • I always wanted to do it as a Cavingtour and I found the perfect. It is a great adventure! I had chosen the tour of 4 hours under the Earth spends. Every question was answered. We had plenty of time in between just to look around us (in the vicinity of the Guide) and there are some situations where you must jump a bit over his shadow. For 4 hours since then but below it is enough and is looking forward to the light of day. So - the perfect number of hours. Highly recommended!

  • I’ve done this tour 4 times in the last decade, and love sharing it with people! This week I brought my boyfriend and teen stepkids for their first experience. We all absolutely loved it! I don’t think the kids realized how much they were learning as we made our way through the cave :). The guides I’ve had have all been eager to share their passion for caving, and I’ve felt 100% safe every time I go. We had Russ take us through the cave this time, and he did such a good job guiding the kids through a bit of nerves about the rappel and letting them discover what they were capable of! I recommend the Rat’s Nest to anyone travelling through Canmore, and will definitely be coming again!
  • Definitely a unique way to see a mountain... inside. Great guide.... thanks Russ! And a very cool experience! Amazing way to spend a rainy day!
  • One of the best day adventures I've ever been on. The guides were professional, courteous, informative and fun. I never felt unsafe and enjoyed the day immensely. Highly recommended.
  • We went on the tour with Ryan, who was absolutely awesome and showed us a hell of a lot in the caves. Ryan’s incredibly passionate about his caving and that really came through - also as a geologist the stuff he was telling us was really interesting. We’d highly recommend this tour - it was an insane amount of fun and an unexpected highlight of our trip.
  • An awesome experience that words cannot do justice to. We highly recommended the longer Adventure tour for a truly remarkable experience. Prepare to be awed. Enjoy!
