Go deep underground and explore Bonnechere Caves, a world that’s as old as the earth itself.
Bonnechere Caves are located about two hours west of Ottawa, Ontario and feature some of the best preserved caves anywhere in Canada. But, there’s so much more. Not only can you venture deep into the caves but if you plan your visit in advance, you may also get the chance to dine and hear live music from inside the caves.
The Bonnechere Caves have been around for over 55 years. They provide a safe, educational, informative and fun tour, particularly for families.
Tourists for years have enjoyed the handiwork of Mother Nature along Ontario’s beautiful Bonnechere River nearby. Reservations are not necessary for tours apparently.
On the hottest summer days, the Caves are cool and you also take a walk along a beautiful trail that passes a sink hole. They suggest a sweater even if it’s hot outside.
Although not necessary, if you have a flashlight, they suggest bringing it along to get an extra close look at the walls and the fossils that are everywhere underground.
So put on a pair of comfy shoes, bring a jacket and a sense of adventure. This experience is perfect for everyone and one you won’t forget!

Born and raised in Toronto, Jim learned early on that the combination of travel and food meant ultimate living. Combining his insatiable creative spirit and desire to document his travels, Jim took his unshakable travel bug and set off to explore. Add the fact that Jim also grew up in a Greek household and he learned that not only does Mom always make the best meals, but as importantly learned the importance of understanding and appreciating the countless beautiful cultures and the integral role food plays in every corner of the World.
In August 2009, Jim founded Travel Mammal, a site that brings together his travels and experiences (both good and terrifying) with the hope that others are inspired to share their own. We are all storytellers, especially when it comes to travel and food. He urges everyone to be inspired, explore and love the world and the people that share it with us. Or in other words, Live to Travel and travel to live!
