Grand Canyon Caverns


Grand Canyon Caverns Rock Formations
Unique rock formations, cold war rations, a hotel room 21 stories underground.  These and other unique sites await you at one of Arizona’s hidden gems.  Located on Arizona’s historic Route 66 between Seligman and Peach Springs, Grand Canyon Caverns is considered the largest dry cave in the United States.
Your adventure will start as you descend 227 feet in an elevator to explore this rare geological wonder.   No bugs or living animals (except the ones who walk in on a tour) can be found in this distinctive grotto.  Be on the lookout, however.  You might run into a mummified bobcat or a giant sloth!

The trails are paved and easy to traverse.  The air is pure and clean.  In fact, you’ll be breathing air that blew through the Grand Canyon two weeks before your visit.  Be amazed at the diverse rock formations that began 35 million years ago.  For the truly adventurous, book a night in the Cavern Suite, a fully equipped hotel room inside the cavern.  After your cavern tour be sure to stop by the gift shop to browse the unique offerings or grab a bite to eat in the cavern restaurant. 
If you are looking for a unique travel experience; one that will take you off the beaten path and into a nostalgic reverie consider taking a trip to Grand Canyon Caverns located on Arizona’s famed Route 66 between Seligman and Peach Springs.  It’s an adventure the whole family will enjoy.
