Our family of four took the afternoon kayak tour of Sparks Lake. We were concerned about the ability of our 9 and 12 year olds to handle the trip. Our guide Jared made sure no one was left behind. Staff was knowledgeable of the region, professional and courteous. Scenery was beautiful. We would use Wanderlust again.

We took a morning kayak trip up to Hosmer Lake with Wanderlust and loved it. This is a top notch tour company! Our guide LOVED his job and it showed. His knowledge of the area and history was amazing, this made the trip even more enjoyable. It was stunning to kayak on this mountain lake in the shadow of Mt... More

This was a fantastic canoe trip exploring parts of Lake Hosmer. We spent a couple of hours paddling around the lake. We saw at least one bald eagle and some osprey. Our tour guide, Courtney, was one of the highlights of the tour. She has a great deal of knowledge about Bend and the surrounding area. I assumed she grew... More

I organized a women's summer adventure getaway to Bend and began the planning in March. Thankfully I stumbled upon Wanderlusts website. I spoke with Dave Nissen, the owner, and he enthusiastically and passionately planned three days of outdoor bliss for us. Dave and the Wanderlust team are absolutely excellent. There was not one single detail left out and every activity... More

My wife and I and other members of our larger family took both a canoe trip and a cave tour with Wanderlust Tours in July of 2014. Both trips were enjoyable and educational. Safety considerations were paramount for our guides. Our guides were exceptionally good. They were pleasant, knowledgeable and worked to build the group of people on the tour... More

Family of four did a midnight canoe tour July 2014. Our guide Courtney was fantastic, making us all feel welcome and provided tons of information on the area, the lake, and stars. So serene, being on the lake with no sounds and zillions of stars. Nothing like it. We've done this tour before a few years ago, and I totally... More

My husband and I took four tours - a bike ride, a lava tube excursion, the Local Pour tour and a Starlight Canoe tour and each one was fantastic! Like the other reviewers here, we really can't say enough about how wonderful each of our guides were. They were all knowledgeable about Bend and the local history, not to mention... More

Wanderlust Tours offers a trip to Paulina Lake that is well worth the time. We drove through the Newberry area where the NASA moon landings were practiced in the 60's and on. Then up a "one" lane gravel road to the top. From the peak we could see Paulina Lake and East Lake below us - two lakes formed from... More

Went on the Wanderlust Volcano Tour which was just awesome. Our tour guide was Courtney who could not have been any more informative about Bend and the surrounding areas, knowledgeable of the geological history of the Newman Caldera where we toured and hiked, nicer to spend the morning with, not to mention navigating her way up a gravel switchback road...
