Both my husband and I had a great time at Polar Caves, even though he enjoys being in small, cramped places under the ground a lot more than I do. What's nice about this place is that you have some control over your level of...More

I went to the Polar Caves as a child and decided to revisit with my boyfriend on our vacation. I was disappointed with the small animal areas and the short walk through the caves. For the price I do not think it was worth it,...More

Every cave as noted has a walk around, but depending on how fit and adventurous you are, I would not pass up the opportunity to try a few of the larger caves out. Take it slow and be careful of your footing.
