The INL Tours Program offers guided excursions to the site and some in-town facilities where visitors have the opportunity to increase their knowledge of INL facilities, operations, history, ecology and many other topics. Tours can be tailored to your group's interests and can cover a wide variety of interests, including science and engineering research, archeological and cultural topics, the historic impacts of INL as a nuclear research facility, and wildlife and ecosystem management.
From school groups to civic and professional organizations, more than 3,000 people tour INL every year. INL tours provide public access to what's happening at the lab. The new Idaho National Laboratory is involved in challenging and exciting activities that will have an impact on the U.S. energy policy and national security, as well as countless new technologies designed to improve nearly every aspect of daily life.
The INL Tours automated process consists of three steps. The first step is to review the tour guidelines. The guidelines provide the up front information you will need to plan and schedule your tour. In step two, you will be asked to provide your contact information and the interests of your particular group. This will set the scheduling process in motion.
After we receive your request form, we will send you a confirmation of your request and schedule your tour. You will be provided a tour number. The tour number is necessary to access your individual tour data, so that you may proceed to step three. In step three, you will be asked to provide us with the names and social security numbers of the visitors in your group.
