Have you ever wondered what you’d see if your elevator kept going down? Down past the ground? Down 21 stories below the earth’s surface?
Take the exploration elevator at the grand canyon caverns and descend 210 feet to see the largest dry cavern in the united states. There are a variety of exploration options to see the caverns ranging from light walking or wheelchair accessible tours, to off trail exploration tours.
Drop in and see 345 million years of geological history for yourself.
The 25 minute wheelchair accessible Short Tour starts at the awe-inspiring Chapel of the Ages cavern. As you learn the history of the Caverns, you’ll also see amazing and rare crystals. Or, for a more active adventure, the 2+ hour off trail guided Explorers Tour goes deep into the Caverns to experience rarely seen areas.
In addition, a set of giant caves were discovered adjacent to the current caverns in 2013. There will be spelunking tours available to get into these brand new areas (expected to be offered starting in 2016).
The Grand Canyon Cavern provides rooming at The Caverns Inn and offers campgrounds, both close to the caverns’ entrance.
If you’re looking for a truly unforgettable visit, take advantage of the full experience and stay underground! The room is 220 feet below the surface and comes fully furnished for your comfort. There’s just one suite, so make sure to book in advance.
