Activities Dog Sledding Canyon Ice Cave Tour Ice-Fishing Kite Ski

Rat’s Nest Cave is a constant 5°C (41°F) all year. Why is that? Because caves reflect the mean annual temperature so no matter what the outside weather it’s always pleasant inside the cave. Like most alpine caves, it is cool in summer, mild in winter.

Access to the cave is restricted to protect the delicate environment within. The cave has over 4 km of explored passage and lies under Grotto Mountain near Canmore, Alberta.
