My Shenandoah Caverns Tour Experience!

For more than 90 years, the Shenandoah Caverns has been receiving many visitors. It is here that you will discover what they call an underground world of wonder, - Virginia's only caverns with elevator service! They also added more convenient walkways without using stairs, much more for the benefit of the elderlies and those who have difficulty walking up and down the stairs. It also means that 80% of the cavern is accessible by wheelchair :).

The cavern maintains a 56F degree temperature yearly round, so always bring a jacket if you are going for a tour. The tour lasts for one hour with a walking distance of one mile exploring all the 17 rooms with each of its unique extraordinary crystalline formations and incredible geological features. You will be amazed as you will see the famous "bacon" limestone formations, the rainbow lake, cardcross castle, and the capital dome formations.
You will also see the breathtaking, sparkling calcite crystals of the Diamond Cascade!
