These caverns are 156 feet beneath the ground and were formed around 6 million years ago!

The Howe Caverns are a popular attraction in Howes Cave, New York. Once you visit the Howe Caverns, you’ll easily understand why they attract so many visitors each year! The caves go 156 feet below the surface and were likely formed around 6 million years ago, but they were officially discovered by Lester Howe in 1842. The cave is mostly comprised of a couple of types of limestone and there is even an underground lake here called Lake of Venus.

Visitors can take the two-hour guided Signature Rock Discovery Tour, which allows you to see sections of the cave that weren’t open for the public to explore until recently. You’ll get the authentic cave explorer experience with this tour as you’ll have to travel through some muddy areas and your only light will be the lanterns your group is carrying. There are other tour options that are better suited for the whole family, such as The Traditional Tour which is 90 minutes and includes a boat ride, as well. A visit to the Howe Caverns is a fantastic way to learn about the unique geology of this region and to explore remarkable caves and rare rock formations. A trip to the Howe Caverns is a wonderful and educational way to spend a day when you’re around central New York!
