Canoe or kayak the mighty Deschutes River and discover exciting information along the way

Deschutes River Canoe Tours

Paddle in silvery ribbon that carves the western boundary of Bend, Oregon.

The Deschutes River, the earth’s life-blood, provides a dramatic means to take in the best of this area. Bald eagles, native rainbow trout, and mink cavort as we roll down the river. The aspen groves and impressive lava flows provide spectacular backdrops to our journey. Our guides will instruct everyone on canoeing techniques and lead the group down the river while sharing the natural and cultural history. The stretches of the Deschutes River that we canoe are devoid of any rapids and provide a placid and peaceful paddling experience for all ability levels. Note: Even if groups have canoed the Deschutes on their own before, this is a completely different part of the river providing a truly fabulous experience with a Wanderlust guide!
