Rat's Nest Cave is a fascinating place. It is home to ancient bones, pictographs, cave formations, and even North America's smallest mammal, making it a museum, zoo, laboratory, and art gallery all in one amazing location.
Canmore Cave Tours and the Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre (CMAGS) have teamed up to bring you some amazing speakers from a variety of organizations to help share the cave's fascinating natural history.
Each date will consist of two science-based presentations that focus on cave-related topics incuding biology, geology, climate, exploration, natural history, and much more! You will also have the opportunity to meet the speakers and ask questions.

The Explorer Tour may be our shortest cave tour, but it is by no means short on fun and excitement. 2 hours underground crawling past prehistoric bones, investigating our ancient cave formations and even squeezing into places (if you so choose of course!).
A family friendly interpretive hike designed to introduce our guests to the incredible history of the Bow Valley. Highlights of the tour include “catch and release” fossil hunting, wildlife tracking, and a short visit to the entrance of Rat’s Nest Cave.
