Now that the bats have migrated out of the cave, let's go check out the BIG ROOM at Kartchner Caverns! Led by a trained Guide, the tour is a half mile long and takes an hour and 45 minutes to complete, one hour of which is underground. The Kartchner Caverns story is about amazing discoveries past, present and future. Marvel at the many strange and colorful formations and learn about cave fauna, both living and ancient. Please note NO items (bags, purses, cameras, bottled water, etc) are allowed into the cave while on tour; however, lockers are available at the park to store these items. We'll have lunch at the on-site BAT CAVE CAFE which serves fresh salads, sandwiches and soups.
