What is there to do?

Kids, did you know that on your next family day out, you don't have to be ABOVE ground to have an amazing time? That's right!

In Tennessee, there is an underground oasis waiting to be explored, and that's the Cumberland Caverns!

At Cumberland Caverns, there are over 32 miles of underground passageways and caves just waiting for families like you to experience them. When you steep below the earth's surface, you will come face to face with incredible rock formations, stunning underground waterfalls, sparkling pools, and of course, adventure!

There are a number of ways for you to enjoy this new underground world, so you can find what is suited to your family the best!

The daily walking tours are around 90 minutes, and a moderate level of difficulty. These are a great introduction for kids if they haven't seen caverns and caves before, and they are suited to the younger ones too! It's certainly something they won't be forgetting in a long time!

If you're feeling a little more adventurous, then why not check out the Spelunk-Tacular Adventures! Here, you can venture a little deeper into the Cumberland Caverns, and take one more challenging activities.

You can explore parts of the caves that aren't usually seen by the general public, there are adventures just for those over 16 years, and there are some that are suited for the over 12s, so you can ensure you pick the perfect ones for those curious and active kids!

For that REALLY different family day out, why not look at the overnight camping options! You can camp out in a 10 acre room, enjoy breakfast in a Volcano room, and you get to see a whole new side of the caverns very few do!
