One of the most unique activities to do in the Canmore region at any time of the year is a guided tour of Rat’s Nest Cave! The cave is located about six kilometres east of the town of Canmore on the south-facing side of Grotto Mountain. It has been considered a Provincial Historic Site since 1987. Canmore Cave Tours guide you through this amazing environment while sticking to their ethically based motto: Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time.

This subterranean playground contains more than four kilometres of tunnels and extraordinary geological formations, such as stalactites and stalagmites. The cave also retains a rich history of inhabitants throughout the past millenniums, discovered through animal remains, fossils and pictographs. Currently, Joe the woodrat is the proud resident of this domain, where his nest lies at the entrance of the cave. Hence the name, “Rat’s Nest Cave”!

With no interior lighting, no walkways or handrails, Canmore Cave Tours vision is to respect and preserve this wonder in the Canadian Rockies while sharing its delights with visitors. Each guide is familiar with local geology and geography and shares a passion for caving. Whether you are nervous about rappelling down a rope or feel afraid to squeeze through a tight space, the Canmore Cave Tours’ team will keep you safe and entertained all at the same time!
