Description: Sun Country Tours has been operating on the beautiful rivers of Oregon...
Sun Country Tours has been operating on the beautiful rivers of Oregon since 1978. We specialize in super fun whitewater trips, including our most convenient trip, the Big Eddy Thriller, which easily fits into a morning or afternoon so you can explore other fun things to do in Central Oregon, like the world-famous Bend Ale Trail. We also offer Standup Paddle Boarding lessons, rentals and tours, as well as river tube rentals so you can "Float the River" like a local.Sun Country Tours offers four family-friendly whitewater adventures on three rivers, including the Deschutes, McKenzie and North Umpqua rivers. We offer convenient pickups in Bend, Sunriver, Redmond and Sisters, and our trips include all transportation to and from the river, all equipment, and of course, expert guiding. All whitewater rafting trips are appropriate for kids 6 and older.

We have lived in Bend for a few years and decided to wait to do the Big Eddy trip until our son was old enough to join us( kids must be 6 or older). It was a blast!

We greatly enjoyed the Big Eddy rafting trip with our family of 23, ranging in age from 7 to nearly 50 years old, most of whom had never been rafting before. The bus driver and guides were all very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun. We left from Sunriver, which is about a 40 minute bus ride to and from the river.... More

Our family of six, ages 11 to 73 took this fabulous "Big Eddy" trip with Sun Country. This is a smooth customer service operation from start to finish.

Hi DarrinDeRoule, thank you for renting float tubes from us during your visit to Bend. Unfortunately, we have no control over the organization or operation of the municipal shuttle, which is provided by Cascades East Transit. We do make shuttle passes available for our guests at our rental kiosk, and many people appreciate the convenience of paying for both the... More

If you are told ( on the phone) the purchase of a rafting trip can go toward the purchase of the ultimate package( if you want to try rafting before the bigger purchase), it is not true. Once there we were told owner Dennis does not allow. That being said the staff was great, Jenna and Drake were great guides... More

We rode the Big Eddy river with Sun Country Tours and was a first class experience from start to finish. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and very personable. For young and old and everyone in between, it is well worth your time.
