Had a great time with Canmore Caving. They accommodated our team perfectly! It was a very exciting adventure for the team and our guide (Brandon) catered to the different levels of fitness with ease. Definitely something the team and I will want to do again.

Safe, fun...challenges you mentally. The most physical exercise is the 35 minute walk up to the cave entrance. The guides make this walk informative, and gentle!
