Ladder Tours
When the CCC installed the Colossal Cave tour route in the 1930s, they provided access to a particularly beautiful section of the Cave - the Ladder Route. Today, you can climb and explore this closed-off and infrequently traveled section. You will wear a helmet and headlamp (provided) as you climb ladders and squeeze through narrow passageways and across bridges. Note that full-fingered gloves are required but not provided; we have gloves for purchase or you may bring your own. After your tour, you'll enjoy a cozy fire (weather permitting) and a delicious southwestern dinner under the stars. Reservations required. Want more information? Just email us or call us at (520) 647-7275.

Wild Cave Tours
If you're feeling really strong, you can make reservations for a Wild Cave Tour. You and your guides will follow the footsteps of early explorers through unlit, unmarked, and rarely seen passageways that extend a quarter mile into the depths of the earth. We provide hard hats and lights; full-fingered gloves are required but not provided; we have gloves for purchase or you may bring your own. Participants must be physically fit, agile, and able to scale obstacles. The tour size is limited to six people and lasts two to three hours. For an additional fee you can enjoy a buffet dinner, and, when weather permits, a bonfire on the ramada after your Wild Cave Tour. The dinner and bonfire must be requested when you make your reservations. Please click here for current tour rates. Want more information? Just email us or call us at (520) 647-7275.
