Guided Canoeing

July 21 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Paddle on a beautiful Cascade Lake with a naturalist guide from Wanderlust Tours.

Registration is required.  This event is sponsored by the Deschutes Public Library and you must register using the above link.

Join us on this iconic paddling tour on the high elevation mountain lakes in the mighty Cascade Range.  Wanderlust Tour’s “renowned naturalist guides will highlight the sweet spots on these stunning lakes that might not initially meet the eye. During our 2 hours on the water, along with the fun and sun, we may impart an understanding of the area’s hydrology and how water sustains all living things. We could build a vision for how insects, born in the lake’s waters, begin the cycle of life that is realized in this intact ecosystem. You will be energized with revelations about natural and cultural history that’ll keep your mind humming with delight long after you return home with fond memories of the tour.

You’ll see parts of these large lakes that are only accessible by paddling into the fingers, coves, bays, and wetlands created by ancient eruptions and erosion. With sweeping views of our local mountains, our Bend, Oregon canoe tours have it all!”

Tour Includes:
– Professional guide & award-winning naturalist interpretation
– Gear: canoes, paddles, PFDs (personal flotation device)
– Transportation: to and from the Wanderlust Tour office
