Perseids Meteor Shower - Sun, Meteor & Moon Canoe Tour
By Wanderlust Tours

Adventure: In less than 90 minutes, we will have the fortune of witnessing the setting sun to the west, the Perseids meteor shower to the north, and the rising supermoon to the east. To celebrate such an amazing series of events, we will be running a Sun, Meteor, & Moon Canoe tour. Take to the lakes with us!


Naturalist Guided Experience: We will journey up to the high elevation lakes and time things up just right so that we are able to witness the sun set over the mighty Cascades, the peaking of the Perseids meteor shower, and the rising of the August supermoon. We are also running a Sun, Meteor, & Moon Hike if you’d prefer to take to the hills!


During your journey, our naturalist guides will highlight the stunning geography, flora, and fauna of the area. They may impart an understanding of the heaven’s starlight illuminating the night sky. Age-old stories and myths mixed with astronomy will enlighten just as the stars and moon do!
