Pick a Day and Cave Your Way – New Caving Options!

Introducing New Cave Tours, Reservation Options & VIP Tours At Cumberland Caverns

Go on a spelunking adventure (complete with helmets, headlamps, and fun)! New cave tours depart on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm CST. These adventures will depart for amazing destinations hidden deep within Cumberland Caverns.

New Adventure Tours

10 AM Saturday & Sunday Tours

A group favorite and a perfect introduction to caving, Adventure #1 The Rocky Topper kicks off at 10:00 am and takes guests ages 6 and up through a maze of spectacular gypsum crystals, ancient fossils, and grand formations.

2 PM Saturday & Sunday Tours

If you cannot make the first trip, jump on board Adventure #2 Higgenbotham’s Revenge at 2:00 pm.  This historic trek is for guests ages 11 and up and boasts tall ladders, incredible sights, and a trip over the mountain to descend inside the cave from a hidden entrance.

You will discover as much about yourself as you will nature when you embark on a wild tour at Cumberland Caverns.  During either journey, you will trace the steps of early explorers and experience the same magic 333’ below as the pioneers did 200 years ago.

Daily Walking Tours

REMINDER: Daily Walking Tours still depart every hour on the hour from 9 am – 5 pm CST – No Reservations Required!

Cave Your Way – Reservation Options

Are you looking for a custom experience?  For a few dollars more, you can cave your own way by booking an advance reservation for 2 or more guests and pick a time that best suits your needs.

VIP Experience – Private Cave Tours

If a VIP experience is more your style, you will be excited to know we offer that as well!  With a VIP reservation, you and your group will be treated to a private guide, high protein snacks and water to fuel your adventure, and all at a time that works best with your schedule. A 10-day notice is required, but well worth the extra planning.

On your trip of a lifetime, Cumberland Caverns will equip you with a helmet and headlamp; you bring your sense of adventure, good hiking shoes, and long pants.

Be prepared to get dirty, laugh A LOT, and conquer the underside of Cardwell Mountain.

Mandolin Orange – December 8

Cumberland Caverns Live Welcomes Son Volt

Cumberland Caverns Live Welcomes Mandolin Orange with special guest to be announced soon!

Performing Saturday, Dec. 8 at the World-Famous Volcano Room – Tickets On Sale Now!

Mandolin Orange’s music is “laced with bluegrass, country and folk…often wistful and contemplative without being somber, and always firmly grounded in the South” (WNYC). The Chapel Hill, NC duo has built a noteworthy catalog of recordings and performances since their founding in 2009. Their live shows are filled with vibrant chemistry, effortless instrumentation, and breezy, fluid harmonies that continue to win over local and far away fans. Recent performances include Telluride Bluegrass, Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo and Pickathon, with support performances at Red Rocks Amphitheater and the Ryman Auditorium.

Hailed by No Depression as “one of the most talented acts making music today,” Mandolin Orange’s most recent album Blindfaller debuted #3 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Album Chart, was featured on NPR’s Heavy Rotation and made Rolling Stone’s “40 Best Country Albums of 2016.”

“The musical tapestry of Blindfaller is delicately woven with lush threads of acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, violin and pedal steel, all ever-present without ever overplaying. However, it’s the vocal interplay of Frantz and Marlin that is the band’s most distinctive calling card” (Rolling Stone).

Lean into the album and you’ll understand why. You’ll hear the way it magnifies the intimacy at the heart of the North Carolina duo’s music as if they created their own musical language as they recorded it.
