For those of us who have lived in Central Oregon, the Deschutes River (a tributary of the Columbia River) is more than just a scenic backsplash to an area that is undeniably stunning; it is our playground! Ranging from calm areas perfect for stand up paddle boarding to raging areas perfect for white water rafting, the Deschutes provides opportunities for outdoor adventures year-round. White water rafting in Sunriver, Oregon is one of our all-time favorite summertime activities, offering thrills and adventures you just can’t find in other, more tame activities, and when conducted under the watchful eyes of our expert guides, it’s completely safe!
Adventure for the Entire Family
Although it may sound scary, we promise that Sunriver white water rafting with Sun Country Tours is completely safe. The experienced guides have been bringing back thousands of delighted customers for years! Offering both calm and quiet waters with plenty of opportunity for enjoying the scenic views that surround the Deschutes, as well as raging rapids that allow you the chance to wage war against nature and come up smiling on the other side, your family will be disappointed if you miss out on this amazing adventure. The pictures that you bring back will be the envy of all your friends and family back home!
The Big Eddy Thriller – Of the three tours we offer, this one is the most popular and most exciting! Lasting about an hour and 15 minutes, departing from Bend and Sunriver multiple times each day, this is the one where you will get to battle the Big Eddy—class III rapids that are moderately difficult. It’s safe for kids 6 and older, but still exciting enough to give you a thrill!
The Lower Deschutes All Day Adventure – Because an hour on the river isn’t good enough and more is always better, we also offer a white water rafting trip that lasts the entire day. It’s about an hour from nearby Bend, and for an extra $5 we will pick you up from Sunriver, but this experience is definitely worth the extra drive and dollars! This all-day adventure involves a river side lunch, volleyball, swimming, and more class III rapids guaranteed to bring you extra thrills and chills!
