Located 40 miles from Albany, New York, Howe Caverns is a year-round adventure for visitors of all ages. Howe Caverns coupons and package deals provide savings opportunities for visitors. Discounts are available for groups, season passholders, and AAA members.
The natural caverns at Howe Caverns were formed over six million years ago. In 1843, the area was turned into a tourist attraction, offering guided tours of the caverns. At that time, tours cost 50 cents each and lasted eight to 10 hours, with only torches to light the way. Today, visitors to Howe Cavern can step back to those days with "The Lantern Tour," a two-hour evening tour that is designed to take visitors back in time. The Traditional Tour takes place daily, lasts for 90 minutes, and includes a boat ride and walking tour. For the more adventurous, the Spelunking Tour includes twisting passageways and crawl spaces for visitors to navigate over the course of two hours.
