WELCOME TO THE BONNECHERE CAVES
Due to the late spring thaw here in the Ottawa Valley our opening is delayed. Check our website and Facebook page for further information about our opening day!
The Bonnechere Caves in Eganville ON. have been welcoming people from all over the world for over 55 years. We provide a safe, educational, informative and fun tour for people of all ages. Everyone from babies in backpacks to senior citizens have enjoyed the handiwork of Mother Nature here along the beautiful Bonnechere River. Reservations are not necessary as we have staff on hand to take you on tour when you arrive.
To better plan a visit to us check out the Special Events section of our website.
What to Expect
Guided tours leave every twenty to thirty minutes and last approximately one hour except for weekdays in September when the tours are at 11 am, 1 pm and 3 pm.
On the hottest summer days, the Caves are cool. For your comfort, take a light sweater. There is a set of stairs leading you into the Caves and one that takes you out of the Caves. A beautiful trail that passes a sink hole will bring you back. Low-heeled shoes are required.
We certainly allow photography. The white waters of the waterfall are a fine subject for movie fans and artists. Although not necessary, if you have a flashlight bring it along to get an extra close look at the walls and the fossils that are everywhere underground.
Picnic tables are provided for the use of visitors. Soft Drinks, ice cream, snacks, souvenirs and science type products are available. Due to the environmental sensitivity of our site, we have upgraded outhouses and hand pump to wash your hands.
