The holiday season means loads of special events are happening around the San Antonio area. One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to get out and see holiday light displays, hear some carolers, and have a nice hot cup of cocoa. To make this season bright, the Natural Bridge Caverns are hosting Christmas at the Caverns – a great selection of special holiday events this season perfect for any group or occasion. And it benefits the New Braunfels and San Antonio Food Bank!

Caroling in the Caverns
Caroling in the Caverns is a ¾ mile, 80-minute trek through the caverns that features choirs from around Texas who make the caverns themselves resonate with seasonal favorites and holiday tunes. Space is limited, and price varies by date. See the Natural Bridge Caverns website for dates, prices, and more details.

Natural Bridge Caverns offers a 1/3 mile walk through Christmas lights in the Hill Country. You can’t beat it – it’s gorgeous!
Santa “Spelunker” Claus
Santa has to be in great shape to withstand the all-night marathon of delivering toys on Christmas. Luckily, Santa enjoys spelunking in the caverns to build his balance, strength, and stamina. “Spelunker” Claus will be at the caverns this holiday season for photo opportunities. Santa “Spelunker” Claus can be found at the Discovery Village Trading Post for $15 each family or group, including a 5×7” souvenir photo.
AMAZEn’ Reindeer Roundup
Santa has lost his reindeer! To help make sure Christmas goes as planned, take a trip through this 5,000-square-foot holiday maze to find all the reindeer before it’s too late! Explore the AMAZEn’ Reindeer Roundup for $9.99/person.
