Had an awesome kayak trip with Jeff! the paddle was scenic, relatively easy (we were out on a windy choppy day) and had a surprise hot spring stop. Jeff made the trip even better with his vast knowledge of the area. Highly recommend a trip with Wanderlust!!

A group of my cousins and their families were all having a reunion at the Sun River Resort in Oregon, so my son and I decided to drive up from the San Francisco area to join them for the week of June 21. Someone in the group had arranged a kayaking trip with Wanderlust Tours and it was great. They... More

I wasn't planning on doing a tour at all in Bend, but I'm so glad I did! I booked a kayaking tour the day of the tour, and we went to Sparks Lake. Even though the water level was low, the tour was incredibly informative and interesting-I learned so much! Our guide gave us so much information on the ecosystem... More

Our experience caving with our guide Pat exceeded our expectations. It was a great way to kick off our week in Bend. Pat was incredibly knowledgeable about the geology and topography of the area. The pacing of our caving was perfect. Not too fast, and not too much lag time in one area. He allowed us to get dirty and... More

If you are looking for the chance of a lifetime try this. It's easy on the body and overwhelming to the senses. We had a family of four do a half day kayak trip to Paulina Lake. The guide drove us and trailer of kayaks with a few other adults. The boats handled easily, the water was crystal clear, the... More

I was in Bend with my husband, my 6 yr-old daughter and my 16 yr-ols son. We went canoeing with Wanderlust and it was great. The guide was really nice, the place was beautiful and the ride was fantastic. Fun for all family!!

A great time was had by our party on the kayaking tour. (4 adults and 8 year old girl). We were greeted by the customer service manager who was very welcoming. Our tour guide, Courtney, welcomed us shortly thereafter. Courney is engaging, funny, spunky, and very knowledgable. The views on the tour were stunning. The trip was very peaceful. Courtney...

Starlight canoe trip was excellent! I think we enjoyed the guides stories and information about the Bend, OR area than the actual canoeing! Great scenery, weather was cool but not cold. I would recommend bringing a jacket even though its summer because it does get cool at night and you are up in the mountains. I have done tours with... More

This is our second year kayaking with Chip from Wanderlust. He is such an enthusiastic guide, and a veritable walking encyclopedia of knowledge on Oregon history, ecology, and wildlife. We were thrilled to watch osprey diving for fish on Sparks Lake, see wildflowers and have amazing views of the mountains while learning about the geology of the area. Chip spotted... More

Jared was absolutely fabulous. He was kind, friendly, and knowledgeable. He took great care of us all day despite traffic, police cars, and crazy drivers. He was a great host and the tour was outstanding. The George/Jividen/Ceppaglia/grgich/Samwel clan. Thanks for the great trip.
