Bonnechere Caves, Eganville
(4.2/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
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. Put Bonnechere Caves and other Eganville attractions into our Eganville vacation trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • What a great experience! It has taken us too long to make the trip out from Ottawa - it's very do-able as a day trip. We did lunch in Eganville and spent a very pleasant couple of hours. The caves are...  more »

  • Loved it. The staff are very knowledgeable, funny, and quick witted. Caves are amazing. Process aren't to bad. In an out of the way place but well worth the drive.
  • I've been here several times and it's definitely worth coming if you've never been. A neat bit of history and geology of the area and some nice scenery. I only docked 1 star because it's a bit pricey for a whole family to come considering it only lasts an hour at most.
  • Our stop at the caves were fun and all of the kids loved it (thought they were playing Minecraft). A few of the highlights was the great story telling by our guide Patrick and being able to crawl down one of the side caverns with the kids. At the end of the day it felt somewhat expensive for the experience coming in at $44 for one adult and two kids under 12 years but I was glad I checked it out nonetheless.
  • Super great experience! Fun for the whole family but particularly those those members who like caves. Patrick was super informative and energetic and I'm not sure how many tours he does each day but he certainly went out of his way to make it special for the whole group!
  • Really cool tour. Definitely worth checking out. The tour is about an hour long and they go every 20-30 minutes on the weekends. It's basically tells the story of how the first guy to explore the caves when through them. It's a fairly easy walk - steps and boardwalk throughout - nothing strenuous.
