Lava Tube Cave Tours
Explore the underground tunnels of central Oregon!
These large, cool lava tube caves are fun and fascinating for the whole family. Outfitted with helmets and headlamps our guides will help you discover secret rooms, great cave history and what lives and grows in the caves. Wanderlust Tours is the only guide company permitted in these lava caves. Note: This is not Lava River Cave on Hwy 97 – we take you away from the crowds into the heart of the high desert to experience natural lava caves without artificial lighting, paved pathways and parking lots. Bend's lava caves are delicate ecosystems that few have experienced in this way.
Included: Guide, Headlamp, Helmet, Transportation and Award-winning Naturalist Interpretation!
The caves are cool! Dress warm and wear closed-toe shoes.
ABOUT WHITE NOSE SYNDROME IN NORTH AMERICA
In March 2016 WNS was found in Washington state. Wanderlust Tours is committed to cooperating with state and federal agencies, as well as conservation groups, to provide information to the public on the value of bats and the threat posed by WNS. Some of our Bend-area caves serve as winter hibernaculum which we do not visit. We operate cave tours year-round where bats do not hibernate. WNS does not affect humans in any way. If you want to learn more about WNS in the U.S., we encourage you to visit this website: http://www.nwhc.usgs.gov/disease_information/white-nose_syndrome/
