Bonnechere Caves, Eganville

4.2
#29 of 143 in Nature in Ontario
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.

  • These caves are beautiful but a very short tour. The guide speaks so very much and stops each time to compensate for the short journey through the caves. If the price wasn't so hefty...almost $40.00 f...  more »

  • Very informative. Great guide explained the discovery of Bonnechere Caves very well and in depth details on fossils etc. Caves themselves are great but not as large as I thought they would be but worth the visit!! Wear good footwear that grips due to some wet floors and stairs once inside the cave. Nice little picnic area as well with falls and little souvenir shop. Toilets on site. Free parking. Nice family outing.
  • Excellent informative tour & super unique experience touring caves! This is a family friendly place, we brought a stroller for our daughter & they kindly let us take it to the cave entrance and had it waiting for us in the front parking lot by the shop when we were done our tour. Everyone was friendly & inviting. A worthwhile detour on our across Canada RV trip!
  • Great day out. The caves are super fun to explore and the drive there and back takes you through some gorgeous scenery.
  • Very cool natural cave. There are guided tours that are inexpensive and are informative. There are also nearby rapids to check out and a small gift shop
  • Had David as a guide. So entertaining and educational. A hidden gem in the Ottawa Valley.
