The epic finale of our week long adventure in the Rockies. There was a cave tour in Canmore that we elected to explore, and what an adventure it was! Lots of crawling, shimmying, climbing, and even rappelling to an amazing calcite formation! After about 5 hours we had only explored about 1/5th of the mapped cave. It was amazing to say the least! @shellymyt @jarrodmytroen #cave #canmorecavetours #caving #explore #explorecanmore #canmore #adventure #spelunking #rappel #ratsnestcave #secretspot #secret #travelalberta #travelcanmore #caveadventures #alberta #rockymountains #rockies #insta #instagram #instagood

A 60ft underground rappel from a cave roof into total darkness? Why not? Spelunking = awesome. #Canmore #ratsnestcave

These two badasses climbed, rappelled, crawled, shimmied, and slithered through caves today on an extreme adventure. Pretty intense. Pretty cool. #swipeleft #ratsnestcave

While on our Canada ski trip, we took a rest day and took a tour of Rat's Nest Cave with Canmore Cave Tours. We took the longest tour available, The Adventure Tour. We spent 4 hours crawling around in the dark and we even did a 18 meter rappel. Max was our tour guide and he was totally awesome. #caving #ratsnestcave #canmore #banff #canada #canmorecavetours

Caving at Rat's Nest Cave Pude haber muerto varias veces, me caí de poto y quedé atascada en un pasadizo. Pero lo logré CTM! Y valió la pena! #canmore #ratsnestcave #cave #caving #alberta #canada #adventuretime #underground #cuevas #bajotierra

In December my friend @youngheartsexplode joined me singing backing vocals for my @canmorecavetours concert series Music In The Mountain performance. @flip.city.films came along and shot a live video to prove it really happened! Check out “More Than Killers” live from Rats Nest Cave. Link in bio! I’ll be playing tomorrow (Thursday) at Good Earth Coffeehouse in Canmore with @phillnugentmusic . 7 pm. Pay what you can. #oneweekrecords #canmore #ratsnestcave #canmorecavetours

This weekend’s adventure: caving. So amazing, I strongly encourage anyone to go take the guided tour at Rat’s Nest in Canmore. We were in a group of eight, with Max, our exceptional guide. Caving was something I’d never done before, and I might be hooked. It’s a relatively inexpensive hobby, that we will likely take up more regularly in the future. More photos to come. #canmorecavetours #ratsnestcave

Banff boasts one of the largest cave systems in Canada with approximately four kilometres mapped to date. The Rat’s Nest Cave is accessed via a five minute drive from their office and a 25 minute hike up a canyon, with some stellar mountain views along the way. Our guide Max was awesome! At its deepest point, you end up 17 stories below the point you entered, crawling through spaces in the rocks that look like a cat would struggle to manoeuvre. When you do reach that point, you're surrounded by an underground lake with stalagmites and stalactites all around you, the guide switches off the light and we’re left in pure darkness, given a moment to appreciate the incredible stillness of the space we’re encountering. #caving #ratsnestcave #banff #canada

It's the little things we sometimes never see that are often the most beautiful. This is of the ice Crystal's that form in the entrance to rats nest cave when the temperatures dip below -30 for several weeks! The warm moist air rises out of the cave and condenses on the cool rocks and slowly grow these amazing but tiny crystal patterns. #nature #cave #caving #macro #flash #flashphotography #naturephotography #beautiful #canoncanada #canon #canonphotography #canon5dmkii #canon_photos #geology #canmore #explorealberta #ratsnestcave #canmore #travelalberta #calgary #yyc #explorealberta #visitcanmore #alberta #explorecanada #geology #adventure #explore #water #ice #winter #macrophotography

@sara.lillz

Photography skills by @logangrasby are beyond me. This actually captures what it looks like down there. Water trickling down from the surface recycles the limestone bedrock, and reprecipitates it as white crystalline calcite formations that decorate Rats Nest, floor to ceiling.

@canmorecavetours

If you travel to a part of a cave deep inside a mountain that has minimal air and water flow, the temperature you are feeling could actually be thousands of years old as the cave has not yet adjusted to modern temperatures. How cool is that? Read more on the Cave Tours blog!

We spent a day exploring Rat's Nest Cave back in December. An 18 m rappel and many tight squeezes were had! The 'Laundry Chute' was definitely my favourite part, you can see Shaun in a portion of it in the 4th photo. The Grotto was a beautiful pool in the deepest part of the cave, surrounded by delicate 'soda straw' formations hanging from the ceiling, in the 6th photo. . Thank you to Max, our fantastic tour guide, who answered so many of our questions that day and taught us a ton! . . . #canmore #alberta #rockymountains #canmorecavetours #caving #cavetour #grottomountain #ratsnestcave

Yesterday I went down to Ranger Way. It was the most difficult photography location I have been to with almost 100m elevation at a 45 degree angle with an average of 1.5 to 2 feet between the roof. At the very end it opens up a bit to a larger room and at the top there was this beautiful formation. When taking this shot I had to brace my feet against the roof while balancing the tripod, triggering the shutter, and painting the formation with UV light! Enjoy!

@nomadscully

Wanna repel into the mouth of the earth? Squeeze through passages so small that you can't see where they end or even where you are going? Turn off your head lamps and crawl through caves in complete darkness? Hit your head more times than you wanna admit? Yea, I do too. 🔦 . . #thankgodforhelmuts #caving #spelunk #spelunking #newhobby #girlswhoclimb #girlswhohike #ratsnestcave #travelalberta #rockymountains #cave #adventure #canmore #squeeze #squeezes #iwannagoback #yeggirl

This area might look familiar to some of you. It is the last thing you see before heading down into the grotto and where you first start to get a glimpse of the amazing formations below. Before you know it you have descended into another world, an incredible sight!

Hiking up to the cave can be quite tricky in winter. Make sure to bring good warm footwear on your tour! If you need more traction well be more than glad to give you some mini crampons for your boots! #canmore #travelalberta #edmonton #yeg #calgary #yyc #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #rockymountains #alberta #explorecanada #caving #canadianrockies #cave #geology #adventure #explore #water #speleothems #stalactites #ratsnestcave #canmorecavetours #samsung #galaxyS7

Working your way into the grand gallery can be a special experience. Descending down into a chamber that dims as you walk into the wide open space.

We stare at these formations in wonder and try to wrap our minds around the time scale that they form. It leaves us in awe at how such beautiful things can form underground unknown to most that live above them. #canmore #travelalberta #edmonton #yeg #calgary #yyc #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #rockymountains #alberta #explorecanada #caving #canadianrockies #cave #geology #adventure #explore #water #speleothems #stalactites #ratsnestcave #canmorecavetours #samsung #galaxyS7

Yesterday we went caving with @canmorecavetours. This was an incredible experience. Our guide, Max, was so knowledgeable and fun to be around. It ended up just being the three of us and we got to worm our way through tight squeezes, crawl in the dark and rappel six stories down into the cave. We learned so much. We saw 750,000-year-old calcite formations and became members of the lucky nub rub club (WHAT?!). It was a great day and I would highly recommend adding this to your itinerary on your next Banff/Canmore/Alberta trip. _______________________________________________________ #Caving #GoCaving #RatsNestCave #Canmore #Alberta #Canada #VisitCanmore #CanmoreCaveTours #CavingCulture #GetUnderground #Calcite #CalciteFormations

Repost from @b_mackinnon_photography . The grotto, seen here, is on the tour side of rats nest cave! It is incredible to have such an accessible and beautiful place. This is another shot of mine taken of the calcite fluorescing under UV light. The settings are matched to the other pictures I have posted, thus emphasizing the colour differences in fluorescence throughout the cave, pretty cool! #nature #cave #caving #fluorescent #longexposure #lightpainting #naturephotography #beautiful #canoncanada #canon #canonphotography #canon5dmkii #canon_photos #geology #canmore #explorealberta #ratsnestcave #canmore #travelalberta #yeg #calgary #yyc #explorebanff #explorealberta #visitcanmore #banff #alberta #explorecanada #geology #adventure #explore #water #uvphotography

@trundledmusic performing in #ratsnestcave this past Sunday evening. It felt like we were standing on another planet. We carefully moved our guitars and our bodies deep into the Grand Gallery. Little drops of water fell from the ceiling. The audience came after and we could feel them, but not see them. We started playing in absolute darkness. For a band that started out by jamming in each other's basements, this was a new take on underground. It felt like I was flinging my voice up against the walls. I was cold, but cozy. It felt really safe in there. 📷: @b_mackinnon_photography 🙏 @canmorecavetours #livemusic #indiemusic #canadianmusic #Alberta @alberta_music @cbc_music @106.5mountainfm #originalmusic #cave #undergroundmusic #caving #spelunking #coveralls #musicians #music #singersongwriter #sing #adventure #getoutside

This is what happens when rats 🐀 get into your cords. Quick tip: When you hire a cord manager we spray rat repellent on cords to prevent this from happening. #ratcord #cordmgmt #ratproblems #pestcontrol #setlife #riptie

These beautiful formations are called cave pearls. They are more rare than the other formations usually found inside our cave.
