The Grotto - Rat's Nest Cave
Join us YEAR ROUND, RAIN or SHINE, for a Natural History tour into Rat’s Nest Cave. A wild, undeveloped cave under Grotto Mountain; near Banff and Canmore, Alberta, Canada!
By wild we mean: no interior lighting, no handrails, no walkways; a cave in its natural state.
Discover the rich history of Rats Nest Cave; including how animals and humans have used the cave. Examine stalactites, stalagmites, animal bones and fossils. Learn about the geology of the picturesque Bow Valley, in the Canadian Rockies, where Banff and Canmore are located.
