Caves are some of the most enigmatic natural formations on our planet. Carved out over millennia, they are home to things you just don’t see in the light. From stalactites and stalagmites to creatures that spend their lives in the dark — there’s something incredibly eery yet overwhelmingly adventurous about stepping into one of these great formations. So you can discover the best caves when you head out on your next outdoor adventure, we’ve collected the top community-recommended Highlights for you here. Simply filter by region and scroll through the results — and view representative photos (you won’t find any airbrushing here!), helpful tips and suggested routes so you can more easily add them to your next trip.
