Great fun at Polar caves, perfect for preschool through teens. The caves are fun to explore at your own pace. There are nine caves, all a bit different. The Lemon Squeeze is the highlight ! Lots of stairs to climb, beautiful views from the top....More

Every cave as noted has a walk around, but depending on how fit and adventurous you are, I would not pass up the opportunity to try a few of the larger caves out. Take it slow and be careful of your footing.
