Educational Field Trips for All Students

School field trip to Glenwood Caverns Adventure ParkLocated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park offers many educational opportunities for your students to learn about history, geology and science while gaining a renewed respect for nature and the preservation of our natural resources.

Our knowledgeable tour guides keep students interested and can taylor presentations by age group.

The scenic gondola ride on the new high speed Iron Mountain Tramway, with incredible views of the Roaring Fork Valley, Mt. Sopris and Colorado River, makes the trip even more memorable.

Because of our commitment to education, we offer very attractive rates to schools. Please review the following school packages and contact Christine at 970-930-6066 to schedule your field trip. Funday packages include the tram ride, both cave tours and unlimited rides on seasonal attractions and require a signed waiver from each participant.

IMPORTANT: FOR GUESTS UNDER 18 YEARS, OUR LIABILITY WAIVER NEEDS TO BE SIGNED BY A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN.
