Caving 101 Tour
Join us on Thursday, October 12th, 2023 at 11:00am for a special Caving 101 Tour! Take your high school aged students on an exciting caving trek! Students will explore undeveloped sections of the Manitou Grand Caverns, while climbing and crawling through passageways lit only by flashlight. Knowledgeable guides provide groups with approximately 2 hours of good clean, yet muddy fun underground! Students can expect an exciting adventure that will culminate in a deeper knowledge about the Colorado cavern system. Caving 101: Introduction to Caving is a tour that teaches teens about the wonders beneath their feet in a fun and accessible way.
All participants must bring a headlamp, a pair of gloves, a change of clothes, and an extra pair of shoes. Crawling is required and the cave is often muddy, so long sleeve shirts and long pants are a must. Please wear clothing you won’t mind getting dirty and possibly ruined by the cave mud. The cave is always around 54 degrees Fahrenheit year round, no matter the weather outside.
Explore the wild, undeveloped depths of Cave of the Winds on this 2-1/2 to 3 hour guided tour that involves an assortment of crawling and climbing through wet and muddy passages of various sizes. On this tour, you will travel for nearly a mile while learning about basic caving skills, geology, zoology, cave history, as well as some myths and legends.
Please expect there to be open exposure, sheer drop offs, tight spaces, ropes and ladders, and muddy floors.
Note: Children under the age of 13 are not permitted. This tour is also not recommended for guests who are or may be pregnant, have heart or respiratory problems, or have back or knee trouble.
