Ontario is an amazing province and we're incredibly lucky to call this it our home. Everywhere you look there are shimmering lakes and rivers, lush forests, and quaint towns that are just waiting to be explored!
Now that summer is finally here, it's time to start planning all the exciting adventures we want to go on! You should definitely get your friends on board for this one because it's probably one of the coolest places to explore in all of Ontario.
The Warsaw Caves located inside the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area are a completely unique series of caves that are fully open to the public to explore.
The Warsaw Caves are located at 289 Caves Rd in Warsaw, Ontario. The caves lie just outside of Peterborough and are a short 1 hr 45 min drive from Toronto, 3 hr drive from Ottawa, 2 hr drive from Kingston and 3.5 hr drive from London.
The conservation area gets its name from the seven different caves found in the park that are mysterious dark caverns to explore. These caves were formed thousands of years ago by glaciers and the best part is you don't need a guide to take you through them!
You really don't need much to enjoy this underground cave system for yourselves. All they recommend for you to bring is a headlamp so you can easily navigate through the dark caves, sturdy shoes and clothes you don't mind getting a bit dirty.
But the caves aren't the only thing you can enjoy in this conservation area, they also have tons of hiking trails, a beach next to a refreshing river, a spot to rent canoes, and sites to set up camp for the weekend!
Entrance into the conservation area by walking will cost $6.50, vehicle entrance will cost $16, a canoe rental costs $12/hour and an unserviced camping site will cost $46/night.
