Lantern Tour

Lost River Gorge Lantern TourNavigate the Gorge and Caves at Night on a Guided Lantern Tour

Lost River is astonishing during the day and is a whole new adventure at night! The caves are lit by lanterns and boardwalks are lit by headlamps (feel free to bring your own or we will provide one for your use during the tour. We also sell headlamps in the gift shop). This guided tour takes about 2 hours and begins at dusk. When we are finished exploring the boulder caves and boardwalk, we hope you'll join us around the campfire for s'mores.

Rate: $31 per person (ages 5 and up)

*Lantern tours are NOT recommended for children under 5 years of age due to safety concerns.  In order to enjoy the tour, you must be comfortable walking about one mile on a boardwalk trail that has over 1000 stairs.  All caves may be bypassed.   Sturdy footwear and outdoor clothing is recommended.
