Wanderlust Tours is the premier destination for cave tours in Bend, Oregon! Join us on this epic subterranean tour on Bend’s ponderosa pine-studded high desert. Our renowned naturalist guides will highlight sweet bits of these cool caverns that might not initially meet the eye.

During our 2 hours underground, in the darkest, quietest spot earth can provide, we may impart an understanding of the region’s geology – how massive volcanoes created these wonders. Or we might share how the cave habitat provides for creatures important to human life. Your crew will be energized with revelations about natural and cultural history that’ll keep your mind humming with delight long after you return home with fond memories of the tour.

Bend’s lava caves have a delicate ecosystem that few have experienced to the fullest! Wanderlust Tours is the only guide company permitted in these special lava caves.

Cave Difficulty:
They are wild caves with no sidewalks or lights. This cave presents a moderate degree of difficulty as it involves many opportunities for scrambling up/down/around rocky areas and crawling through short passages. You will be walking over uneven terrain. The caves are 45 degrees year-round.

Tour will last approximately 3 hours, plus transportation time.
