IN REDMOND OREGON
LOOK TO THE EXPERTS TO SHOW YOU A GOOD TIME
We love our sun-bathed desert landscapes and snowy peaks. We also know exploring this terrain can often call for gear and lots of research and planning. Sometimes it’s good to find an expert and let them handle the rest. Discover some of our favorite guided tours in Central Oregon.
The passion we have for our community and this land will play to your advantage when you book a tour or guided experience. One of the most popular in the area is rock climbing guide services at Smith Rock. From mellow beginner climbs to expert routes, any skill level can hang. There are several rock climbing guide services that will provide a fun, safe experience.
One of our favorite ways to explore our desert terrain is on horseback. Book a Smith Rock trail ride and you’ll see why. The quiet steps along the rushing river with golden rock faces towering above is an unforgettable experience. We drift back to a different time, or maybe to a panoramic moment in an old movie. (It’s easy to do when the horse you’re riding has actually been featured in movies.)
To get off land for a moment, we book a kayak tour with Oregon State Parks. Paddle around Lake Billy Chinook with a Cove Palisades State Park ranger along crystal blue water through stunning high desert landscapes. When the water levels are right, we switch gears for a rafting adventure down the Deschutes River.
There are plenty of tour operators in the area that can scoop you up and take you on a snowy adventure of a lifetime. For the daring folks, we recommend sled dog rides, snow bikes or snowmobile tours. For those seeking a slower vibe, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing is a great way to take in a winter wonderland.
There are some operators that have a long menu of options like Wanderlust Tours. Snowy bonfire experience? Yep. Lava tube adventure? Sure!
If you want to see everything, we recommend taking a hot air balloon ride. Float above our rocky landscapes, river canyons and sprawling farmlands. On a clear day, you can drink up ten peaks along the Cascade Mountain range.
