Chris is an affable host who proudly & enthusiastically leads tours of his special caves. Well lit tunnels are easy to negotiate. Good for younger kids, too. Seasonal opening as caves flood in the spring.

These caves are beautiful but a very short tour. The guide speaks so very much and stops each time to compensate for the short journey through the caves. If the price wasn't so hefty...almost $40.00 for 2 people and you are in and out in...More

The Bonnechere Caves offer a fun and educational experience for the whole family. The site is a nice activity to pursue with kids if you are in the Pembroke, Calabogie, Renfrew, or Eganville area. It's a good idea to bring a flashlight or headlamp, but...More

Stopped by Bonnechere caves while road tripping across Canada and glad I did. You have to go on a scheduled tour, no random wandering, I believe it's every half hour, don't need to pre-book but should maybe call before if it's busy season. Cost about...More

Interesting place, our tour group was very small (only 4) but our guide was knowledgeable and very personable and gave a terrific tour. Worth the drive.

This is a great spot to visit something unique. If anyone is in this area of the Ottawa Valley I'd definitely recommend the 1.5 hour stop to visit the caves. Thanks Joelle for a great tour!

It's a one hour guided cave tour and it was busy when we visited. About 25 people in our group. The cave is well lit with stairway and walkway. We saw 5 bats flying in the cave. The tour guide narrated the cave's history. Overall...More

You can visit the caves in the rain. Be aware the route through the caves is one-way, and the return trip is overground/ open air - you'll be exposed to the elements.
