Off-Trail Tour - Not Available 2021

Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve Tours

Cave Tours are closed due to COVID-19. Tours will start based on current Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as state and local public health authorities, and Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA). We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as possible! Alternative ranger programs will be announced soon. Meanwhile, all surface areas are open for you to enjoy!

Experience the wild wondrous Oregon Caves off-trail! Trained guides will teach you caving techniques, cave etiquette, and bring you face-to-face with the marble structure of Oregon Caves. This four-hour experience through tight squeezes and crawls will challenge and exhilarate you! This is a very strenuous, adventurous experience. Scramble boulders, belly crawl, negotiate uneven rock piles and squeeze yourself through confined cave passages as small as 11 inches by 19 inches. The only source of light is your caving headlamp! Youth must be a minimum of 15 years of age and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participants must wear their own over-the-ankle hiking boots with good traction. All other gear is provided. Failure to provide proper footwear could result in denied cave entry. Available dates for the 2020 season yet to be determined.
