Colorado's Largest Show Cave Open to the Public!

Since 1999, Glenwood Caverns has been welcoming the visitors to see the spectacular natural wonders hidden inside Iron Mountain. If time permits, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park recommends visitors take both the Historic Fairy Cave and King’s Row tours. Both tours, as well as unlimited turns on rides and attractions, are included in a Glenwood Caverns Funday Pass. The first cave tour begins approximately 60 minutes after park opens.

Enjoy a ride on the NEW Glenwood Gondola and then go underground on two walking cave tours–King’s Row is recognized as one of the leading show caves in the country.

Becca and Kiki were wonderful tour guides. Becca had me laughing and having fun the entire time. Super informative as well. Would 10/10 recommend going on a tour with her. So impressed with how she did the tour. Kiki was super knowledgeable and was able to answer all questions and added her own fun flair! Wonderful time. Will be back for sure!

Amazing attraction. Our cave guide (Ken) was super knowledgeable and passionate about the cave system. Don the manager gave us some great local advice. Definitely recommend this experience for anyone passing through the Glenwood Springs area.

We took both cave tours and we were so lucky to have Cole as our guide. He is charming and informative and really made the tours fun. These are some amazing caves! We have been to many caves around the US and these are some of the best!! The tram ride is really fun and the entire experience was a treat!
