Feel like a great family adventure…DEEP underground? Why not! It’s certainly a unique experience and once that the kids will never forget!
Howe Caverns have a range of tours for the family to explore this natural underground wonder. But that’s not all – these caverns have something extra special. What’s that we hear you ask? How about some super cool adventure in the form of Tower Zip Lines, or ropes courses, or even a rock wall? Pretty awesome!
Let’s take you back 6 million years…or there abouts anyway. You see, scientists think that the caverns started formed long before creatures like the woolly mammoth roamed the earth. But there is something extra special about the Howe Caverns. They happen to be one of the very small number of living limestone caves in the entire world!
Then, 20 years before the outbreak of the Civil War (history lovers, do you know what year that would have been?) the caves were discovered. Lucky they were, because otherwise there wouldn’t be this amazing place for families and kids to have an incredible time!
To see the caverns, there are a number of amazing tours which you can enjoy, each one starting with a 156ft descent below the surface of the earth…are you ready! Winding through the limestone corridors, you will walk past traces of time gone by, from strange formations to hidden secrets in every turn. The traditional tour is a fun 90 minute walking tour with a boat ride. The lantern tour is a very cool 2 hours every Friday and Saturday evening where you will go back to how it would have been in 1842!
There is a fun family flashlight tour, as well as an adventure tour. Make sure you pick what is best for your family!
Don’t forget about all that adventure to be had – but we’ll let you experience that for yourselves!
