Cave and Basin National Historic Site, 311 Cave Avenue, Banff

Events Description

Visit the Cave and Basin in Banff National Park after dark with only a lantern for light! Join a small group of visitors to learn more history and tales of the discovery and days of old.

Lights, sounds and a little magic from the fog machine conjures up the past including your host, the ghost of David Galletly, the first caretaker of the Cave and Basin. While the Parks Canada hosts speak of the history of the site, carefully walk through the unlit tunnel to visit the shadowy cave.

Entering the cavern in the dark relies on all your senses. The water drips louder, the minerals smell stronger, the shadows grow taller the water feels hotter and the stories from Mr. Galletly are mesmerizing. Watch how the lanterns cause the shadows to dance on the rugged cave walls. Include a stop at Story Hall to learn more about all the national parks in Canada through interactive displays and visual experiences.
