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.

Rafting Big Eddy was a lot of fun....just wish it was longer! It seems a little short for the cost. It was still a blast and the guides did a great job. I would use Sun Country again, but would research longer trips.

We rafted the Big Eddy with Casey Pierce and it was such a fun time! He was super fun and jokey with the kids and made it seem exciting and not scary. We were in good hands.

My wife and two high school boys had one of the best times on the water thanks to Sun Country Tours. We booked the transportation to the Big Eddy from Sunriver where they picked us up @ 3pm and returned us to Sunriver Village around 6pm. I think I read literature about the tour that said we would be on... More

We went rafting on the McKenzie River with another couple. The water was cold but a super fun trip with lots of fun rapids and bumps. Not much slow water. We had such fun with the am trip that we stayed on and continued with the pm tour. Our guide Six was great--personable and he knew what he was doing.... More

This was my first time whitewater rafting and it did not disappoint! First of all, I was terrified. Terrified. Not only for me, but for my 2 kids (age 7 & 10.) But we were in great hands with our guide Willie. There were some stomach lurching moments, but I never felt in danger and it was super duper fun!... More

The Big Eddy Tour really is fantastic...but have found that the other company does the same trip for much less.
