Ratâ€™s Nest Cave
Located in the small town of Canmore, Alberta, Canada is a whole new world. With its beautiful location in the Bow River Valley, at the edge of Banff National park, and the base of the Canadian Rocky Mountains is the Ratâ€™s Nest Cave.
Canmore Cave Tours proudly provides access to this unique experience to visitors year round, 7 days a week. Tours accommodate parties with a minimum of two people that are at least 10 years old. Tours last at a minimum of 4 Â½ hours. Visitors start the caving experience with a brief hike to the cave where the guide will point out any wildlife, fossils, plant life, and explain the areaâ€™s geology. Participants then get up close and personal with the cave by crawling, climbing, and slithering their way through mud to see everything Ratâ€™s Nest has to offer. General access to the cave is restricted to protect its natural formations.
Rat's Nest Cave was named a Provincial Historic Site in the year of 1987, and it is 41Â°F consistently throughout the year. Unlike many cave tours, at Canmore visitors get a true spelunking experience.
