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.

Our group had a great time on the water. Our guide was very knowledgeable, experienced and fun to be with. The rapids are level 1-3 and spaced well so we got all the thrills without the terror. I rented the waterproof pullover ($3) and stayed completely dry on top (except for my hair). It was warm enough that the waterproof... More

We took the Raft and Brew trip on 7/20. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful; I originally booked the trip for the wrong date but they were very accommodating in helping me change it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The trip down the river was really exciting, at no time did we ever feel unsafe.... More

This company is hands down the most professional and courteous group of people. From the moment we booked the white water rafting trip, we had not one thing go wrong. The trip guide Johnny was awesome and very knowledgeable. Our daughter was a bit nervous at first, then at ease when she was allowed to paddle some. Thank you again... More

Took our youth steel drum band on the "Big Eddy Thriller" on 7/22/16 and the experience was top-notch. Making the arrangements was super easy, the staff was helpful and friendly, and our trip down the river was a blast! The guides were professional and fun! The kids loved it, the parents loved it - I highly recommend!!!

We have done a few white water trips around the west and have been lucky enough to enjoy all of them. Sun Country, however, stands out among the crowd -- super well run, safe but adventurous and excellent people. Our guide Dylan was the guy you wanted -- made the whole thing a big kick but was clearly in charge... More

The Big Eddy rafting tour was the perfect introduction to white water rafting for our boys - ages 7 and 9. Our guide Ross was fantastic! We all left soaked and wanting more!
