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!

These formerly submerged natural caves were formed by turbulent waters in the Bonnechere River. The history of their discovery was interesting and the caves themselves are really neat. The guided tour was well done. My family enjoyed our day.

This is an excellent site not to be missed!  The only access into the caves is through guided tour and the guides do an excellent job explaining the natural history behind the caves.  What is even more interesting is the outrageous stories they tell about...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.
