Walk Straight Through A Mountain On This North Carolina Cavern Tour
You can’t possibly believe you’ve seen and done it all in North Carolina until you’ve walked through Humpback Mountain by way of an ancient cavern with wondrous secrets waiting to be explored. That very cavern also happens to be the only open-to-the-public cavern in the Tar Heel State. And as a bonus, it’s located very near to the Blue Ridge Parkway and a number of other attractions like Linville Falls and Grandfather Mountain’s Mile High Swinging Bridge so you can make a day trip of visiting more than one must-see spot in North Carolina.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The caverns conduct 30 tours per day with a maximum of 14 people on each tour. Face masks are required, so be sure to bring one. Tours depart every 15 minutes. Tickets are only sold on-site for the day of your tour. Linville Caverns has seasonal hours, but remains open all year. The hours from March through November are Thursday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed Monday and Tuesday). From December to February, it’s open only on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Learn more from the attraction’s official website.
