Caves are MUST visit if you are around Eganville or Cloyne (Bon Echo Provincial Park). Just 1 HR from Bon Echo. Great and educational place. Our tour guide was fun and knowledgeable about caves, geology and history about it. Caves are underground and cool so...More

The tour guides are excellent storytellers. The history of the cave is really fun to learn. The man who discovered them is a unique character which adds all kinds of charm to the experience. It can get pricey if you go with a lot of...More

Interesting cave. Not a long tour nor anything spectacular. But nice for an outing. Children will enjoy the effect of the turning off of the lights. Striking different in air temperatures at the exit of the cave (hot and humid) compared to the enterance above.

Interesting caves with stalactites and stalagmites. Not too long for the squeamish. Educational and the surrounding waterfalls and searches for fossils along with walkways offer hours of entertainment and natural beauty.

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

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.
