Discover the beauty of Ausable Chasm at night! Our "Lantern Tours"
are our only nighttime tour. At dusk, each person is supplied with a lantern while our knowledgeable guides lead your group into the Chasm. We will enter the Chasm at the rim and then descend into the
deep dark canyon 150 feet below and walk along the legendary Ausable River and its rushing waters. Exploring the dark shadows of the chasm walls is an awe-inspiring sight! Tour includes a community campfire and marshmallow roast!
