Bonnechere Caves, Eganville

Must see · Cave · Nature / Park
Conduct your very own archaeological dig at Bonnechere Caves, a set of caves that geologists claim was the bottom of tropical sea 500 million years ago. A tour of the caves reveals fossils and interesting rock formations. Take a camera along to capture the impressive limestone hills that the caves lay under. The tour operator provides a knowledgeable guide, as well as all flashlight equipment; you should bring an extra layer or two to combat the underground chill, and boots with traction for the slippery floors. Those who suffer from claustrophobia should approach with caution. Plan my day in Eganville using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • The caves were an excellent visit. Our tour guide, Scott, did a lovely job of mixing geology, history, and story to make an interesting an exciting tour. The caves themselves are cool in both a literal and metaphorical sense, which is great on a hot day. They are also somewhat wet, so be prepared to get a bit damp. But it's all in good fun. The area around the caves is all gorgeous, so be sure to leave a bit of time to hike around the river.
  • A must visit. Happy to see an Ontario wonder still privately owned. The property located here is gorgeous, do not miss checking out these views. Some very interesting things learned on this tour, and your guides are well entertaining. I would recommend for all ages! Support local my friends.
  • Excellent example of a limestone cave system. The whole experience well worth the trip. They have a entertaining and informative guided tour. As well as an engaging property to explore. I look forward to introducing new people to this natural occuring wonder of Ontario.
  • Awesome family fun day! So interesting about the history of the caves when Tom Woodward opened it up for the public in the 60's! Our guide, Ryan I believe, was very interesting to listen to about the history of the Bonnechere caves! A must go with the family! We would go again! ❤❤
  • Guide was very knowledgeable and price is responsible. Tour took about half hour to complete. There is plenty of drinks and snacks for purchase, location was easy to find other I lost signal in some areas along the way. This is great for family, friends, whomever. Like the historical background of the cave and walked away very knowledgeable. Would recommend.
