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.

I had never been white water rafting before, but when I visited Bend for the first time, we decided to try this out! I am so glad that we did!

We were traveling from Portland and Columbia River Gorge to Crater Lake, and this was on the way. We spent an overnight in Bend, which is a fun place and the Big Eddy trip was only a few hours, which was perfect! We were with our kids - all over 25, but there is not a family click for that.

I planned a rafting trip with Sun Country Tours for an 8 man bachelor party. It was a quick van ride from their point of operations to the river drop-off, maybe 10 minutes max. They were on time and had everything ready which I found very professional. I also liked that there wasn't a big safety schpiel before getting in... More

Hi Zach J, thank you for rafting with us. Yes, this time of year, the Deschutes, which is a managed river for irrigation, starts to run a little more tame than it does in spring and summer. We hope you'll join us again next season when the river is a little more energetic :) More

The folks at Sun Country are always polite and professional and do a lot to make a fun trip out of this section of the river just above town toward Mount Bachelor.

This adventure was one of the highlights of my Central Oregon travels. Our guide, Kasey, was so fun and knowledgeable! There was one VERY difficult guest in our group and he handled her so graciously and kindly making a potential trip killer, no issue at all! Next time, though, I'll sign up for a full day.

My brother-in-law rafted with Sun Country Tours, so he, my grandson, and I booked a tour and had such a great time. The shuttle driver was fun and gave us lots of good tips about the area.
