Depart Bend, ORegon August 20, 2017
Solar Eclipse August 21, 2017
The path of totality will pass right through the middle of nowhere, just outside of Bend, Oregon. Wanderlust Tours is offering a 36 hour tour for the viewing of the Total Solar Eclipse occurring on August 21, 2017.
This tour will include a drive to a sweet, yet undisclosed location, dinner, sleeping under the stars, hiking up to a magnificent viewing spot, catching the eclipse, and toasting to an incredible event! We are beyond excited.
How it works:
Depart Bend on Sunday, August 20 at 10 AM. A 1.5 hour drive will bring us to an amazing location. Wake up early August 21st to enjoy a camp-cooked breakfast that we'll make together and then hike up a local butte to view the total eclipse. Our open sky viewing location is a one mile gentle uphill hike to the most stunning and secluded spot to witness Oregon's path of totality. Our guides will share natural and cultural history, including that of the solar eclipse. Once atop the butte, we'll witness unparalleled views of this historic event. Within the path of totality, we'll experience two minutes of "lights out." After the eclipse, we'll hoist a locally-crafted beer in celebration of this incredible sight. The last time a solar eclipse touched the continental United States was in 1979.
Cost: $500/person includes transportation from Bend to viewing location, remote campsite fees, solar eclipse viewing glasses, naturalist guide, dinner, and breakfast. Other things you might need like tents, sleeping bags, and pads can be rented if needed. Sleeping bags are rated for summer so we strongly recommend bringing extra warmth. (Tents and pads: $5, sleeping bags: $15)
*Drop luggage at Wanderlust office on Saturday August 19th by 9:30AM.
