VOLUNTOURISM: CAVE CLEANUP
For over a decade and a half, Wanderlust Tours has been giving back to mother nature and bringing our community together through our Cave Cleanup. We have partnered with local businesses and volunteers to clean up this area. We can't wait to share about it after the event!
ART IN NATURE WITH 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.
LOCALLY-CATERED DINNER CANOE
For these custom group tours, we partner with one of our talented local restaurant partners to craft a magical experience. Enjoy a delicious, specially-catered dinner right by the water's edge, followed by a stunning, Naturalist-Guided canoe tour on the peaceful waters of the Cascade Lakes, or the Deschutes River.
STEENS MOUNTAIN CUSTOM TOUR
We lead custom guided tours into the heart of the Alvord Desert, with an emphasis on the magnificent 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.
CRATER LAKE GUIDED TOUR
Experience one of the most stunning sights in the Pacific Northwest! In the winter, we'll lead custom snowshoe tours around the rim of this volcanic caldera. In the summer,
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.
