Christmas at the Caverns at Natural Bridge Caverns


If you’re in San Antonio, Austin or the Texas Hill Country, check out Christmas at the Caverns at Natural Bridge Caverns for a truly unique holiday experience. 

Christmas at the Caverns at Natural Bridge Caverns

This past weekend brought an experience I’m happy to check off my bucket list: singing Christmas carols 180 feet below the ground. Christmas in the Caverns is a one-of-a-kind experience at Natural Bridge Caverns that was a big win for my family. 

Natural Bridge Caverns has holiday fun above and below the surface. If you haven’t visited in a while, come check out all the new fun stuff!

Twisted Trails Ropes Course – $15 per adult and $11 per child.

Skating for $3.99 – reserve in advance and pay $2.99.

Caroling in the Caverns – $15 per adult and $11 per child. This was the best part of our experience. The standard cavern tour is slightly abbreviated to make time for below the surface caroling. There were three musical acts at various point along our path through the caverns plus one at the entrance. The caroling route is the standard Discovery Tour route (about 3/4 mile) but the tour guide spends minimal time talking about the caverns to make time for the singing but you are welcome to ask if you have questions. 

The Twisted Trails Zip Rail course is an add-on purchase. There’s lots of climbing fun, to include a special area for smaller/younger kids.

Christmas at the Caverns: An all around festive experience

If you have not been to Natural Bridge Caverns recently, the holidays are a great time to check out what’s new. The surface attractions are a lot of fun and seeing the park lit up for the holidays is a treat. Relax and listen to Christmas music, check out the synchronized light displays, and buy a s’mores kit to roast over the bonfire. 

I definitely recommend adding Christmas at the Caverns to your holiday bucket list. We spent about three hours on site and did everything except the AMAZE’n Reindeer Roundup. It had been a long day and we ran out of steam, but you can reasonably hit all of the experiences in 3.5 – 4 hours and not feel rushed. 

We were treated to a performance of a bell choir at the entrance to the caverns and three musical performers underground.
