Pick up at your hotel and depart for a unique and incredible winter day at Crater Lake. En route our guides will share some great natural and cultural history of our region. Upon arrival at Crater Lake we’ll strap on the snowshoes for a sweet journey on the volcanic rim of the United States’ deepest and purest lake. Shoeing the powder through the national park’s massive trees is nothing but fun. Few ever get to see our state gem in this fashion! The area’s geology and natural wonders will be shared with the group. A deli style lunch spread will hit the spot before we head back to Bend.  

 It will be necessary to share with everyone the following items to bring: snow boots, dress in layers with powder pants for one’s legs. A water bottle is good to have as well as a camera. If guests need to rent snow boots, pants or jacket, Wanderlust can provide these for $10, $5 and $5 respectively.  At the time of reservation, we will need to know the size of rental boot.

  Includes: Transportation, guide, snowshoes, gratuity and deli lunch.  8 passenger minimum

 *Please note that the Crater Lake Tour, whether in February or May, will always be a snowshoeing tour. It will be snowy that time of year and so the program will remain the same. We will be using the full day, taking the southern entrance, providing lunch for the group, and snowshoeing through the forest up to great viewpoints.  

 

 

We’ll pick you up at your hotel to begin our journey of three amazing craft-breweries which make Bend the renowned brew town that it is! We’ll take you to four breweries to witness fermentation and distillation magic all while enjoying samples of delicious beer at each brewery. Throughout the tour your professional guide will dazzle you with the highlights of beautiful Bend, Oregon delving into the natural and cultural history of the area. 

Includes: Transportation, guide, beer samples at four breweries, and appetizers at one.

4 passenger minimum.

 

 

Scattered around the sage-covered High Desert lie ancient caves, buried by the volcanic upheavals in centuries known to past peoples. We’ll discover the hidden underground world of these large cool caverns in a way that’s safe and fascinating! Leading small groups with headlamps for all, our guides will provide in-depth interpretation on the formation of the lava tubes, the wildlife habitat inside the caves and the many uses of the caves over time from Native American dwellings to cold storage for early Bend residents. Central Oregon’s caves are delicate ecosystems that few have experienced in this way. 

Includes: Transportation, guide, helmet and headlamps.

4 passenger minimum.
