Scenic Caves Nature Adventures is set in one of Canada’s six designated UNESCO biosphere reserves at the highest point of the Niagara Escarpment. It provides a unique natural environment to explore geology, chemistry, biology, physics, archeology and history. The Scenic Caves has actually been a tourist attraction for over 70 years and in 2003, they also included a new suspension footbridge — the longest in Ontario.
Today, the area is owned by Rob Thorburn, who has turned the caves and surrounding area into an adventure park serving all seasons. In winter cross country ski or snowshoe on their groomed forest trails. Open daily (including holidays) from 9am-5pm with the last ticket sold at 3pm.

Although Scenic Caves can easily be visited during a day trip, those planning a longer stay can arrange accommodations at one of hotels, inns, resorts or even campgrounds in the area, many of which have waterfront access to the bay. Throughout the tour, marked by numbers, you can read more about the different unique caves and caverns and also about particular areas with Native American history. It’s super close to Blue Mountain Ontario, and a heartbeat away from Wasaga Beach. The bridge measures 126 m in length and is 300 m above the valley floor (300 m above Georgian Bay).
