Experience a hair-raising tour underground, walking through forbidden New York caves with only a lantern to guide the way....if you dare.

The Haunted Cave Lantern Tour along the Erie Canal is back for 2023. The eerie guided tour leads you along the dark waters of the Erie Canal, telling folklore, tales, and creepy stories as you enter the forbidden tunnels and caves under Lockport, New York where it's 55 degrees year-round.

You'll walk by stalactites, flowstones, various geological formations, and artifacts left behind by those who built the tunnel in the early days of the Erie Canal.
