Rappel 60ft below the Rocky Mountains during this crazy Banff cave tour

Via Banff Adventures

Not sure if you’re claustrophobic or not? Take a cave tour – you’ll find out pretty quickly. Banff Adventures Grotto Tour is maybe the most unique (and also the most terrifying) way to experience Alberta’s Rockies.

You’ve seen hills and peaks of our mountains but have you seen the underbelly of our snow-covered beasties? Embark on a one of a kind, 4 to 6 km adventure through the caverns below Alberta’s Bow Valley and learn about our province’s natural history.

Get ready, Calgary, we’re in for a beautiful weekend!

With the help of a trained guide, squeeze in and out of the tight spaces and narrow walkways several feet underneath Grotto Mountian.

This activity is definitely not for the faint of heart or for anyone who has a difficult time even taking a snooze in a zipped sleeping bag like ourselves. However, if you can brave the lack of space, it’s a great way to escape the summer heat, and get in some exercise at the same time.

Tours range from $135 to $175 per person and can be taken all year round so if you don’t get to it now, don’t fret! For more information or to book your underground adventure check out their website here! Good freaking luck down there guys. We think we’ll stay up here, where there’s grass… and other humans…. AND AIR.
