Cavern Tours

Tours & Cave Exploring

The Grand Canyon Caverns are the largest dry caverns in the United States, located 200 to 300 feet below the surface, and accessible via our exploration elevator. You enter and leave the caverns by means of this elevator, dropping 21 stories underground, making the caverns easily accessible. Because the caverns are so deep underground, the temperature is always constant, a mild 56 degrees, and there is zero humidity. The caverns offer a number of unique geological formations that can be easily viewed from our smoothly paved walking trails. The walking trails have hand rails and there is a number of benches for resting along the way.

We currently offer 4 tours. A short guided walking tour for those with very limited time or need for maximum accessibility. Our Regular guided walking tour, which is 45 minutes long, covers 3/4 of a mile and departs every half hour. The Explorer Tour, which goes off the beaten path for the more adventurous. And the Ghost Walk tour, which you can read all about right here. Please click here for our tour operating hours and contact us if you wish to do the explorers tour so that we can arrange the exclusive tour guide and equipment needed for this tour.
