Waitomo Glowworm Caves

This product was recommended by Harry Anapliotis from Rental Center Crete

It is more than just a cave, it is a natural wonderland. The glow worms light up the entire area, making a stuffy cave into something very beautiful and magical. The limestone formations are pretty spectacular too, with three levels to explore, you will not be bored at all. Because you are on a boat, it almost feels like you are riding with Willy Wonka in his tunnel in the factory, dreaming about wonders you cannot ever imagine were real. But I think that a piece of those dreams are real in the caves.

Mammoth Cave, Kentucky

This product was recommended by Tom Winter from DevSkiller

If you are going to go caving may as well go big and delve into the world’s largest known cave system. The Mammoth Cave, located in Central Kentucky, has more than 400 miles (640 km) of passageway for you to explore either by walking or on a boat through its subterranean waterways. Much of the cave’s extension is located in a national park that bears its name, where you can do many other activities such as canoeing and kayaking in the river that runs through it (Green River), as well as hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, camping, lodging, among others. If you don’t have much experience in the caving field, don’t worry! You can take the cave tour led by rangers where you can learn the history behind this UNESCO’s World Heritage Site and contemplate the astonishing views it has to offer.

West Virginia Mountains

This product was recommended by Calvin Klaski from Everything WV

West Virginia is the mountain state that sits on top of a caving state. There’s great spelunking if you know where to look.

Apostle Island Sea Caves

This product was recommended by Melanie Musson from CarInsuranceComparison

In Spring, Summer, and Fall, these caves are accessible by kayak when the water is calm in Lake Superior. The lake is a stunning clear emerald color that contrasts beautifully with the red rock caves and caverns. If the lake is stormy, the caves echo with the crash of the water in their chambers. Winter is the most magnificent time to visit the caves. When you can access the caves over the lake on ice, you can explore on foot. The smooth caverns are transformed as the ice forms temporary stalagmites and stalactites. The ice caves provide a truly enchanting experience.
