We picked Wanderlust for our kayak tour of the cascade lakes based on trip advisor ratings and were not disappointed. Nick was exceptionally knowledgeable about the history of Bend and the geology of the area. From pickup to drop off we were in very capable hands. The scenery on and around the lakes was spectacular. This trip was by far... More

We did a family outing (parents, aunts, teens, and a 9 and 10 year old). Everyone had a great evening! Wanderlust transported us to Hosmer Lake and back, provided the canoes, awesome snack cookies, and hot chocolate half way through. We left Bend a bit after 7pm, were probably canoeing by 8:15 (right around dusk), and got back off the... More

We were lucky enough to be on a cave tour this morning with Dave as our guide. The tour group included several kids of different ages, including my 6 year old. Dave did a great job of explaining the archeology, geology, flora and fauna of this area, and how the lava tube cave formed, in a way that was accessible... More

We took a Wanderlust tour of a lava tube and while the tour itself was okay, the guide was annoying. He was constantly telling us what a great group we were and how amazing we were. It was an obvious suck-up for a tip and it detracted from the actual tour. You weren't allowed to pay for the tour ahead... More

We went on a wanderlust tours canoe trip to Sparks lake with two friends and our son. It was so easy because they transport everyone and the canoes and do all the heavy lifting. Our guide taught us a lot about the local flora and fauna and how the Cascades were created volcanically. The people that we brought were a... More

Amazing!! Our guide Courtney, was awesome!! She knew so much about the history of the lake, Newberry Calderra. The water was crystal clear and a little chilly, but a refreshing dip was had. My family would highly recommend this company. It was an amazing time!

Absolutely amazing experience. Our guide Seamus, who was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable and the stars we saw as we canoed a glass like lake in the Cascades were nothing short of spectacular. An exceptionally unique and amazing experience. Highly recommended.

My family of 8 (6 kids ages 4-14) took this tour as part of a cross-country road trip last summer. What a blast! Nothing like driving through bone-dry, crazy hot desert to a big hole in the ground leading to a naturally air-conditioned lava tube cave system. We had NO idea these things even existed! SO COOL! Our tour guide... More
