Where are we going today?

The Grand Canyon Caverns are the largest dry caverns in the entire country, AND can be found on that iconic Route 66. Two check lists on the one family day out ticked!

These amazing caverns are located a whopping 200 to 300 feet below the earth's surface - who said adventure needed to be ABOVE the earth! They are also located in the heart of 3 million acres of unspoilt land, so get ready for clear skies, fresh air and open prairies!

The Grand Canyon Caverns offer you 4 types of cavern tours, each with increasing durations, so you can pick which is the best for your family!

Those with limited time or limited accessibility, the Regular Tour might be the one you go for. Around 45 minutes in duration, you enjoy an elevator ride down 21 stories to the Chapel of the Ages cavern, where you can learn all about the history of the caverns, and the surrounding areas! There are also some pretty impressive natural formations to admire!

The Short Tour is for those families really in a rush, as it's only 25 minutes!

If you have the time, why not spend a bit longer enjoying these amazing feats of nature. The Explorers Tour is around 2 to 2.5 hours, and you will be taken deep into the lower reaches of the Grand Canyon Caverns. There is no limit, which is super fun! It's all about how deep and dirty you want to go!

Don't forget in 2016 the caverns are planning of offer spelunking tours too!

Above ground there is a 9 hole Frisbee golf course to enjoy, and one can also arrange trips from here to Supai waterfalls, as well as horse-riding and rafting adventures!

The restaurant is open from 11am - sunset, and is a great place to fill up those tummies after an underground adventure!.

Any Top Tips?

Check out the Ghost Tours that depart at 6pm during season. A spooky way to end the day!.

Need a little extra help?

The shorter tours are the best ones for those with limited mobility, as there is an elevator to get you down.

Can I get one of those?

The Curio gift shop is open throughout tour access times and a great place to pick up some great items both fun and educational!.

    LOVED IT! We were a group of seven and our tour guide for the caverns, Desiree, was very informative while keeping it fun. We had all age groups on our tour from little children to senior citizens and she was able to keep everyone engaged. We were able to see the caverns, take pictures and get a lot of questions answered. I'm very glad we decided to stop along the way and explore the caverns!

    My review of: Grand Canyon Caverns

    For a school field trip we traveled to Grand Canyon Caverns. It was a longer drive than anticipated. It is off old Route 66 and the drive had many fun signs and businesses that I wish we had the time or energy to explore.

    There is a hotel right at the entrance that has Dinosaur statues and an old gas station decorated as characters from the movie Cars. There is a white painted old truck that everyone is welcome to write on.

    The cavern tours was a one mile drive further in.

    Food was really good, kinda pricey but what do you expect when the place is a hundred miles from anything, tour is cool.

The cavern tour was fun. There are many different tours you can schedule for so It is budget friendly. We did the half hour tour. This cavern is 210 feet down and the elevator ride was surprisingly swift and smooth. There are emergency stair available. is the largest dry cavern with formations here in the US. Remains of a prehistoric sloth from the ice age was found and you can still see it's claw marks as it sought escape. Also supposedly there is a section of cave that has documented paranormal activity in it that you can come back at night and do a Ghost tour. How fun.

There is a restaurant, decent restrooms and air conditioned waiting room in the building leading to the elevator for the tour.

I loved seeing shapes in the rock walls, but funny enough, the cave guide had never noticed the dinosaur looking down at you. Once upon a time this cavern was named "Dinosaur Caverns"
