  • Great staff and experience. I haven't gone for a full tour yet, but plan to when the kids are a few years older. The company helped facilitate a Alberta/BC Cave Rescue course that I attended at Rat's Nest cave. They have a good caving gear store. If you're looking for equipment or caving suit, this is one of the few places in Canada to get it!
  • The staff at Canmore tour was just the nicest. I am now more than ever convinced that Canadians are the nicest people. The lady working in the office really helped me out by giving me some warm clothes that were left behind by other caving participants. I was sleeping in my car on my Canada adventure and it got way colder than I could have imagined. When I informed them about my nut allergy she gave the tour guides a heads up and made sure that no peanut bars where given out to participants. I felt really safe and highly recommend this caving experience for people with a nut allergy. I will come back to Canmore in the next years and participate in another caving adventure! I discovered my new summer vacation activity. If there were more than 5 stars I would give those!
  • The Rat's Nest Cave is definitely an 'at least once in a lifetime' experience. Adventurous, educational and awe-inspiring. The trail to the cave can be steep for the uninitiated. But it's worth the effort a few times over just to experience the pitch black darkness inside. The limestone deposits look otherworldly. Thanks to our guide Chris for his friendliness, expertise and attention to detail. Felt it was good value for money considering the effort involved.
  • So much fun. What a great way to spend a day. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, skilled and patient. He made sure that everyone was comfortable and safe. I want to go again.
  • Went on the adventure tour and I would definitely recommend it and would absolutely go again when I'm back in the area! Our guide Doug was very informative, helpful and took our group on some more difficult squeezes after he gauged our abilities. Wonderful!

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.
