Full description

Discover the otherworldly landscapes of the Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve on a guided tour with entry tickets included. Check out this unique geological area, choose optional pickup, and enjoy lunch included in the price of the tour.

Begin your adventure with a stop at the visitor center where you can learn about how the Apollo astronauts used this rugged terrain to prepare for their 1969 moon landing.

Take a walk through the monoliths of the North Crater Flow, one of the monument's youngest lava flow areas. Stroll through Devils Orchard for a view of the strange features of this volcanic island and learn about the preservation efforts underway to save this delicate landscape.

Hike up Inferno Cone for a bird's eye view of the fissures of the Great Rift and to see Big Cinder Butte, one of the world's largest known basaltic cinder cones. Walk up and admire 360-degree panoramic views of the surrounding volcanic landscape.

Take a break for lunch at the cave before you venture into an ancient lava tube at Indian Tunnel. Dare to walk down into the largest tunnel in the park with collapsed portions that allow light to filter in. For added excitement, climb through to the top of its lava tunnel onto an ancient lava field.
