About Deschutes River Kayak Tours

Adventure: Wanderlust Tours is the premier destination for kayak tours in Bend, Oregon! Join us on this iconic paddling tour on a sweet and placid reach of our signature river, the Deschutes. 

Naturalist Guided Experience: Our renowned naturalist guides will highlight the lava flows that influenced this reach of the river. The many species of flora and fauna that call the flow and its banks home is super intriguing with takeaways of the importance of all living things. Adaptation to ecosystems is nature’s way of coping and thriving and will keep your mind humming with delight long after you return home with fond memories of the tour.

Location: The stretches of the Deschutes River we kayak are devoid of rapids, and provide a peaceful paddling experience for all ability levels.

Even if you’ve paddled the Deschutes River before, with a professional naturalist guide, you’ll see the Deschutes from a completely new perspective!
