Canoes and brews was great!

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides! The tour was great fun! You don't need to be an experienced canoer (is that a word?) great berr tasting on a beach too. Beautiful lake!

5 of us that were renting a house in Bend for a week decided to do this tour a few days before hand. I wish we had planned better and done the full moon kayak tour but we'll save that for next time. Jared picked us up at the house on time as scheduled and gave us some insider information... More

We used Wanderlust for two tours out of Bend. We visited the Newberry Volcanic National Monument with Nick and did the Moonlight Canoe trip with Chaney. Both tours were wonderful. The guides were personable and knowledgeable. We especially loved canoeing in the dark. We would certainly recommend both tours and use them again when back in Bend.

We found this place on Trip Advisor and knew after reading all of the great reviews that we needed to do a tour. We settled on a Canoes and Brews tour which matches canoeing with drinking brews, Deschutes Brews, what could be better? We met at the office location and once all of the paperwork and checking in were completed... More

I took an afternoon's kayaking trip with Dave from Wanderlust and a group of friends. It was a most memorable time. Superb views of classic Oregon wilderness: snow capped peaks and pine trees around the lake, with Bald Eagles thrown in for good measure. It was like being in the middle of a promotional film for the Cascade Mountains. Dave... More

Our daughter gave us a treat for a kayak trip and our friends decided to join us. Only 4 of us signed up for this trip which was fabulous! Maybe the not so great weather? Anyway, our tour guide gave us a choice of selecting a lake to kayak in that requires a 45 minute drive and the temps would... More

Last Friday my wife and I joined the Bend Brew Bus for the afternoon. We were led by Jeff as we visited 4 different breweries in Bend. At our 2nd stop we have some great appetizers at Bend Brew Company. We also visited Worthy Brewing, Bridge 99, and Craft. We had a group of 10 people and we enjoyed a... More

The beauty of central Oregon mountains are breathless. Every trip I make reveals tremendous outdoor life. This tour allows you to experience the wonder upfront & personal. Jared, our tour guide, did a fantastic job of making our journey memorable. We would highly recommend this adventure if visiting Vend.

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
