Christmas at the Caverns

We would like to thank everyone who took part in our Christmas activities in 2019. We are planning Christmas at the Caverns for 2020. Please check back here for the latest updates.

At Natural Bridge Caverns, we celebrate Christmas unlike anywhere else in the world! Nestled in the scenic Texas Hill Country, we kick our holiday festivities up a notch. Hear your favorite carols echo through Texas’ largest underground cavern. Get pictures with Santa “Spelunker” Claus, then round up his reindeer in our outdoor maze. As the sun sets behind our 30-foot tall Christmas tree, a hayride rolls through the hills, families roast s’mores, enjoy games, music, a giant snow globe, skating, and more.



Practice toe jumps, camel spins and figure eights skating in the Texas Hill Country! Skates available in children and adult sizes. (Socks Required)

During this season of giving, “Christmas at the Caverns” continues its support of the San Antonio Food Bank, which serves residents of San Antonio and New Braunfels.  A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the Food Bank, and during December each guest who brings a nonperishable food item to donate to the Food Bank will receive $2 off an adult or $1 off a child Cavern tour ticket, redeemable for any Cavern tour.
