Nine granite boulder caves, seven attractions, four climbing routes, three animal species, and one iron way across the sky. Welcome to Polar Caves.


Polar Caves is an outdoor nature attraction located in New Hampshire's White Mountains offering educational experiences that open eyes to the wonders of the region's unique geology, and showcases non-native animal species, while providing access to adventure-themed caving and climbing activities.
