Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures....

Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures. Offering tours of the dunes since 1987, our professional drivers will show you a great time while you travel across an impressive natural wonder of endless shifting sand. You will also experience unique tree islands, various wildlife and the spectacular Siuslaw River.  Choose an exhilarating dune ride on our Sand Rails or a relaxing tour on our Giant Dune Buggies.  Our one hour tours also include traveling down our Pacific Ocean Beach.  Large or small groups can be accommodated on either tour. For those who prefer speed and excitement, try either a half hour 10 mile tour or an hour 20 mile tour. These 7 to 10 passenger Long Travel Sand Rails have over 20” of suspension travel and plenty of horsepower to take you on an exhilarating ride. If you prefer a slower pace, enjoy our interpretive Giant Dune Buggy Tour with many picture opportunities. Informative, scenic and fun describes this one hour dune buggy tour covering approximately 8 miles of dunes and 2 miles of ocean beach. Climbing and descending through the most beautiful, impressive dunes will be an unforgettable experience.After your dune ride, you can bump and splash on our Bumper Boats, race on our Grand Prix style Go-Kart Track, play a round of Miniature Golf or take a ride on the Cloverline Railroad. We are located less than one mile south of Florence on Hwy 101.

We rode the giant buggy (you know, the one with kids and seniors) and had a great time going around the fine white sand dunes. There were other types of buggies, ATV's and vehicles and they all seemed to be having a good time as well. Fun activity for families. There are a few dips and climbs - might make... More

I rode the dunes last year with my son and a some of his classmates on a school field trip. We had a blast going over the dunes and bumps. If you decide to ride in one of their vehicles,do so on a low wind day,as the sand tends to blow quite a bit.

My husband and I had an absolute riot doing this. Resonable price and a great experience. I kinda wanted to get ones so that we could do our own thing, but I am so glad that we did the group tour. It was crazy! I was laughing so hard I was crying at how fast we were going. We had... More

We had a great tour out on the dunes with Sand Land! It was cold (November) but we all bundled up and stayed warm! The kids loved the bumps and big down hill roller coaster like hills while adults loved leaning about the dunes. Keep your eyes open for wildlife. We saw deer and sea lions!

These guys are, in my opinion, the best dune adventure company in Oregon. I visited a couple of years ago, and made a trip this year specifically to visit again. The staff are excellent, and the Sandrail (the fast, more fun buggy) is just a blast! They offer 1/2 or 1 hour tours, which are basically an adrenaline-filled lowered buggy... More

We took out of town visitors on a dune buggy ride. Service was excellent. Sight seeing was great and our guests enjoyed the ride. This is not for the faint of heart. Experience includes some sand flying around, and you might have sand in your ears when you are finished, but it is worth it for the views and the... More

This was awesome, we would not have had such a great ride if we had rented our own buggies. Ben our guide was great, knew the area and took us on a wild ride. Highly recommend.

My husband and I did the one-hour fast tour three years ago but we just came back with his parents and nephew because it's such a blast. We drove almost 8 hours round trip from our campground in Nehalem Bay specifically to do this dune buggy ride. From beginning to end it's non-stop fun. I spent most of the time... More

This is definitely a ride for the adventurous. If you are prone to motion sickness, stay away. This is a thrill ride with some great views of the dunes. 7 year old daughter loved it!
