Luray Caverns

Luray Caverns is the largest and most popular cavern in Eastern America. Luray Caverns have been amazing visitors with their stunning size and beauty since being discovered in 1878. It offers tours along well-lighted, paved walkways that lead visitors through cathedral-sized rooms with ceilings 10-stories high, towering stone formations, and natural wonders at every turn.

All formations in the caverns are calcite, a crystalline form of limestone. Calcite in its purest form is naturally white. Titania’s Veil is a pristine example of a calcite formation in its finest purity. Dominating Giant’s Hall at a height of 47 feet, this column is the tallest and one of the most spectacular formations in the caverns. The Great Stalacpipe Organ literally makes stalactites sing by gently tapping them throughout three acres of the caverns. It’s a musical masterpiece that can’t be found anywhere else in the world…or under it.

Enormous chambers are filled with towering stone columns, shimmering draperies, and crystal-clear pools. The National Park Service and the Department of Interior designated it a Registered Natural Landmark.

Two bodies of water, Dream Lake and Silver Sea lie within the caverns, however, neither’s deepest point is more than 18 to 20 inches. This sparkling lake reflects a myriad of fantastic forms and creates a mirror image of the abundant stalactites hanging from the ceiling. Stalactites sound as unearthly as they look at Luray Caverns.
