Discovery Tours

This tour is a guided tour that lasts for approximately 45 to 60 minutes and is designed for families with children as well as beginners who have never done a cave tour before and need an easy walk. The educational tour is easy enough for children as young as infants and has a beauty that children and adults of all ages can take in. This is the most popular family tour that the Cave of the Winds has to offer and begins every day in 20-30 minute intervals.

Lantern Tour

The Lantern Tour provides explorers with an experience that is just a little longer than the discovery tour and goes a bit deeper into the Cave of the Winds. The tour offers people a more historic tour with a spooky twist to an adventure. Lanterns light up the path that the explorers take and the tour guide gives people a thrill with ghost stories that have lasted for decades, tales of the olden days when the cave was first discovered, and the spookier history that the cave has to offer. The spooky adventure is only available for children and adults six years old or older and lasts for ninety minutes. It is offered every day and begins on the hour every hour.

Caving 101 Tour

This tour is the longest of all the tour options lasting for a total of 120 minutes or more depending on the guide that takes you through it. It is a much more difficult tour to go on as you have to be physically able to climb over large rocks and crawl through tight spaces with relative ease. As it is a very taxing, but very exciting tour, it is only available to people who are at least thirteen years of age or older and can only be gone on at certain times of the year. It is an exciting cave trek that takes you through the undeveloped parts of the Cave of the Winds, and it does require a reservation that must be made at least 48 hours before you plan on going through the tour.
