Lantern Tour

Join us to relive the thrilling experience of early explorers! On our one-hour-long guided Lantern Tour, you’ll venture 65 feet below the surface, exploring passageways by lanterns and headlamps. You’ll learn about the eerie ghost stories, folklore, and history of Seneca Caverns, Ohio, as you walk and climb through the dimly lit passageways. A Lantern Tour is the perfect way to step back in time – and step into adventure!


Our Lantern Tour is a guided one-hour trek through rugged caverns and is ideal for more adventurous visitors. Participants will climb natural stone steps and pathways, bending in areas where the ceiling is low.
