Caving & Canyoning

Travel Alberta

Caving & Canyoning in the Canadian Rockies

Discover hidden secrets of the Canadian Rockies as you experience the mountains from a different perspective. Imagine descending into the depths of a wild, undeveloped cave and twisting through passageways etched over thousands of years. As you look up, ancient stalagmites are illuminated by the soft glow of your headlamp. Or picture yourself floating along a stream surrounded by a canyon that's been sculpted in time. You follow the river and pass over everything you encounter along the way: waterfalls, drops, pools, rock slides. Adrenaline rushes through you as you rappel, jump or descend from one pool to the next. When you emerge, you can’t help but feel invigorated and refreshed. 


Get away from the crowds and get underground with Canmore Cave Tours. The wild, undeveloped cave under Grotto Mountain is part of one of the longest cave systems in Canada. The cave tours are a great option for year-round adventures with Rat’s Nest Cave maintaining a temperature of 5°C (41°F) every day of the year. Climb, crawl, wiggle and slide your way through the cave on one of the wild cave tours. Are you ready to explore?

Travel Alberta


Prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime with Bow Valley Canyon Tours! Rappel, slide and leap through secluded canyons as you take on one of the Canadian Rockies' most adrenaline inducing activities. There's something for first time canyoners to your seasoned veterans with tours running to Heart Creek Canyon, Ghost Canyon and Castle Canyon. Visiting in the winter? Explore a world of ice as you hike, scramble and rappel past frozen waterfalls and into an icy slot canyon on an exhilarating winter experience like no other.
