Canmore Cave Tours Kicks Off Fall/Winter unEarthed Line-Up: Events Inside Rat’s Nest Cave

Craving a seriously unforgettable experience in the mountains this fall/winter? Look no further than unEarthed – an unique and intimate underground event series from Canmore Cave Tours.
Held deep in the heart of Rat’s Nest Cave – a wild, natural cave inside Grotto Mountain – unEarthed features other-worldly music shows, Halloween horror screenings, magical holiday choirs, and more.
Adam Walker, Owner & Senior Guide, says over 25 years of operations Canmore Cave Tours has discovered their adventures offer more to visitors than just the physical act of moving through the cave.
“For many people, climbing, crawling, sliding, squeezing and rappelling past ancient pictographs, bones and cave formations can be a life-changing moment,” Adam says.
“unEarthed is our way of showing the world that the cave is not just a place for adventure-seekers. It can be a classroom, an art studio, a place for quiet reflection or an awe-inspiring music venue. It can be almost anything you imagine it to be.”
Fall/winter line-up is below. Tickets and more details here:
