November 30, December 1, 7, 8, 14, and 15
6 PM–8 PM

Carlsbad Caverns National Park presents their annual Rock of Ages tours! Visitors will have the opportunity to experience the wonders of Carlsbad Cavern and its colorful history. Dressed in historical costumes, park staff will guide visitors on a lantern-lit tour in the Big Room area of the cavern.

This park tradition gives visitors the chance to meet some of the men and women who helped lay the foundation of this national park. The tour will feature a re-creation of the historic “Rock of Ages Ceremony,” which was regularly conducted in the Big Room from 1928 to 1944. During this portion of the tour, visitors will experience a black out. They will be immersed in total darkness as voices fill the cavern singing the hymn, “The Rock of Ages.”

 

Reservations are required and limited to 25 people per tour.

 

Fee: $10 for adults and $5 for children under 16. Children under five are not permitted.
