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.

This was a great and family fun activity. The people running the rentals are knowledgeable and super helpful. Price is great and the location is very easy to get in and out. You need to be there early in the day if you don't want to wait.

Took our family of 5 on the Big Eddy trip. The trip was well organized and we were fortunate enough to have Ross as our guide. All the children had a fun time and we felt safe throughout. Only downside is that the trip was short and the kids left wanting to keep rafting. Thanks Ross and Staff. We may... More

We had a great trip down the McKenzie with a guide that entertained us and informed us of the river and what to expect. Great trip! Lunch was fantastic as well.

You see osprey nests. You actually hit some rapids. You can make... More

But about 15 minutes from our destination, the traffic was stopped due to a fatal car accident. The authorities estimated several hours before the road would re-open, so we were forced to... More

Great guide (Ty), great lunch, lots of additional fun options like floating, swimming, and riding the bull. I felt very safe with my daughters first time rafting (11 yrs old).
