Polar Caves is family owned and operated for 95 years, offering generations of visitors a chance to slip between the rocks of time and explore the underbelly of the earth.
Polar Caves were formed during the last Ice Age when a glacier moved across the landscape, dropping granite boulders at the base of what’s now known as Hawk’s Cliff. As they fell, the boulders formed passageways, around and through which, we’ve built boardwalks and stairs to allow for deeper exploration.
Be inspired by the wild wonders of the natural world at Polar Caves, offering family-friendly adventure since 1922. Explore nine granite caves, seven attractions, including new climbing attractions, visit our Animal Parc, and shop for unique gifts, snacks, homemade fudge, maple products and more. We’re located in Rumney, NH; just six miles west of Interstate 93’s Exit 26 at 705 Rumney Route 25.

Nine Granite Caves

Polar Caves Park wishes to be welcoming to every person. However, our attraction is built into the side of a mountain. The changes in elevation necessitate inclined paths and stairs. As this is a natural attraction we have limited paved surfaces. Our main concourse and paths are either bluestone gravel or earth. Wheeled vehicles (wheelchairs, scooters and strollers) will be unable to or have great difficulty navigating this terrain. All nine caves are situated on or around Hawk’s Cliff at an elevation hundreds of feet above the parking lot. There are many stairs that connect the caves and bypass boardwalks.
Our main concourse where our Animal Parc is located is gravel covered and partially accessible depending on the diameter of a wheeled vehicles wheels. Persons with physical disabilities that limit mobility or who are accompanied by registered guide dogs should contact the office in advance with additional questions.
Pets are not allowed in the park.
The Polar Caves were formed during the last Ice Age, long before the invention of strollers and baby carriers. Neither of these modern conveniences works well while touring the caves due to steep inclines and declines, tight spaces and in some cases low ceilings. Strollers will be difficult to navigate over stairs. A baby-back carrier or snuggly type device may leave the child exposed to physical injury if a caregiver slipped or fell. However, many parents have toured the caves or utilized the boardwalk bypasses that allow a visitor who wants to “go around” a cave to do so by following a boardwalk path. Additionally, we do have a baby changing station located in our Maple Lodge accessible bathroom.
The Polar Caves were formed about 50,000 years ago as the third continental glacier descended over New Hampshire’s White Mountains. When the ice retreated, it left behind an amazing series of caves and passageways to explore! A self-guided tour through Polar Caves will take you to the rock garden, on the nature trails and through the nine caves in the park.
