Experience description

Created some 80,000 years ago by a huge volcanic eruption, the lava tube caves near Bend are some of Oregon’s biggest visitor attractions. This spectacular Tinggly gift experience in Oregon doesn’t take you to the most-visited cave though - accompanied by a professional guide you’ll be exploring a lesser-visited cave in the high desert, with no artificial lighting or paved pathways. No other company operates tour here, meaning you’ll be one of the few to see this astonishing underground ecosystem.

Learn about the unusual bats, spiders and centipedes that call the caves home with the help of interpretation that has won awards. 200ft (60m) below the surface, you’ll follow the path of the molten lava as it carved a hollow through the earth, creating unusual rock structures as it did so. All guests are equipped with helmets and headlamps to better illuminate this incredible subterranean landscape.

  • Wander one of the world’s most spectacular natural lava tubes
  • First-class interpretation from a professional guide
  • See an incredible cave that most visitors miss
