LOCALLY-CATERED DINNER SNOWSHOE
During the winter, we partner with one of our talented local restaurant partners (like
Wild Oregon Foods) to bring you a special treat. Enjoy a delicious, specially-catered dinner, followed by a magnificent snowshoe trip out to the quiet of the nighttime forest. There, you can relax around a hand-carved snow amphitheater while enjoying some hot drinks made with locally-distilled spirits, some delicious locally-made desserts, and the amazing ambiance of the old-growth forest at night. 

WINTER GUIDED TOUR OF CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK
Experience one of the most stunning sights in the Pacific Northwest! In the winter, we lead custom snowshoe tours around the rim of this volcanic caldera, explaining the fascinating geological and cultural history of Oregon's only National Park. Afterward, enjoy a catered lunch with some hot drinks in this beautiful landscape. 

STEENS MOUNTAIN & BLACK ROCK DESERT GUIDED CUSTOM TOUR WITH THE HIGH DESERT MUSEUM
We lead annual custom guided tours into the heart of the Alvord Desert, emphasizing Steens Mountain. From Bend, we travel deep into sagebrush country, where we spend three nights and four days uncovering history, hiking through deserts and forests, exploring ranches, and relaxing in hotels established in the early 1900s. For more information, please visit our page detailing the Steens Mountain Guided Tour.

ART IN NATURE: SURVIVORMAN LES STROUD
We partnered with the Tower Theatre to present a host of activities with Survivorman Les Stroud. Our Naturalist Guides brought Survivorman and guests out to the stunning Cascade Lakes, and to one of Central Oregon's wild Lava Tube Caves. At each spot, Les performed some of his music and regaled the audience with tales of his adventures.
