This December Carlsbad Caverns National Park will be offering special lantern-lit guided tours.

During the tours park staff will be dressed up in costume, bringing to life characters from the caves past. These characters will conduct tours of the Big Room as it was done in their day, back in the 1930’s and 40’s including the blackout and historic Rock of Ages ceremony.

“We want the public to feel that they’ve met the people who helped put Carlsbad on the map and brought the Caverns to light as well as to join us in the search for the ‘lost history of Carlsbad Caverns’.” – Supervisory Park Ranger Chris Amidon, director of this year’s tours.

These unique tours are available only on December 17th and 18th to a limited number of visitors. As such reservations and tickets are required.

For more information or to make your reservation, call (575) 785-3152, visit the Carlsbad Caverns National Park website or just stop by.
