Have you ever wondered what it takes to discover an actual, massive cavern system? Don't worry if you haven't, it can be tough, especially since the process is an incredibly grueling one. Fortunately, one San Antonio cavern system offers the chance for you to take some of the same paths the discoverers did when first exploring what's now known as Natural Bridge Caverns. 

Natural Bridge Caverns offers two different Adventure Tours, which get you down and dirty like you've never been before.

Whether you decide on the Hidden Passages Adventure Tour, or the Discovery Adventure Tour you'll spend a good three to four hours underground.

The tours are offered year-round on weekends only, and as long as people have signed up they'll take off first thing in the morning. 

The Hidden Passages Adventure tour requires participants to be 13 years or older, whereas the Discovery Adventure Tour requires participants to be just 10 years or older.

The difference between the two tours is easy, the HPAT lets you repel down a 22-inch well shaft, and the DAT requires crawling through very, very small spaces.

Either one may come off as incredibly intimidating, but once you're in your gear, which is provided for you, their friendly guides will help you the entire way.

To book your adventure tour you can call (210) 651-6101 and learn the dates they have available for you to go. 

Each group that ventures out on one of these tours is pretty small, to make the experience better for everyone.

While at the caves, be sure to check out their newest attractions and maybe even go mining for gems! They pretty much have it all.
