Open 7 days a week, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's. Boat tours subject to weather.

Kentucky’s only Underground Cave Boat Tour and treetop Flying Squirrel Zipline await you at Lost River Cave. Choose to explore or soar into adventure as you discover this Kentucky natural wonder!

Explore! Daylight disappears from view as you board the boat on the river that Ripley’s Believe it or Not claims is the shortest and deepest in the world. The guided tour begins along the river’s edge with stories of Native Americans, Civil War troops, and the notorious Jesse James.

Soar! The Flying Squirrel Zipline will have you flying through the treetops and zipping over the valley’s largest blue hole surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty. LRC's professional guides will lead you on an exhilarating 3-zip adventure.

Discover! The seasonal Butterfly Habitat, nature trails, picnic areas, and a favorite children's activity, the gemstone sluice. Wildflower Gifts offers apparel, home decor, collectibles, jewelry, Kentucky food products, fossils, and more.

Just looking to stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air? Enjoy the valley's blue hole trails at no charge by simply checking in at the Visitor Center to let them know you're there. Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the valley.

Open year round, 7 days a week. Walk-in visitors are always welcome, or you can reserve your spot on the Underground Boat Tour or Zipline on the Lost River Cave website.
