Deschutes River Canoe Tours — Seasonal, weather-dependent


Paddle Central Oregon’s most iconic river on one of our Deschutes River Canoe Tours.

Bald eagles, native rainbow trout, and mink are just some of the neighbors you might paddling down the river. The aspen groves and expansive lava flows provide a stunning backdrop for our journey. Your naturalist guide will provide instruction on canoeing techniques and lead the group down the river while sharing the area’s natural and cultural history.

The stretches of the Deschutes River that we canoe are devoid of any rapids, and provide a peaceful paddling experience for all ability levels. Even if you’ve canoed the Deschutes River on your own before, this is a completely different part of the river— and with a professional naturalist guide, you’ll see the Deschutes from a completely new perspective!
