Grand Canyon Caverns, Arizona
Grand Canyon Caverns is a natural limestone cavern 210 feet underground and the largest dry cavern in the U.S. You enter and leave the caverns by means of an elevator. A 45 minute, 3/4 mile guided walking tour is available. Tours depart every half hour daily except Christmas Day, the only day the Caverns are closed. The tour begins with an elevator ride down 21 stories (210 feet) to the Chapel of the Ages cavern, the scene of numerous weddings throughout the years and large enough to hold two football fields. Your guide will tell you about the history of these awesome Caverns, including information regarding areas you will not visit.
You will view Selenite and limestone crystals, the unique “winter crystals,” and Helecite crystals (a very rare form of Selenite). See the “teacup handles,” red-wall limestone, crystals and more.
Also available is the Caverns’ Suite. A suite fully furnished with all the amenities 220 ft below ground! The largest, deepest, darkest, oldest, quietest motel room in the world.
