Ah, spring! Days are getting longer, the air is getting warmer, and there is a freshness to life! What is your springtime go-to? For some, it means a cleaning binge, or exciting new goals, or starting outdoor sports. But spring is also a great time to travel – especially if you’ve been cooped up indoors all winter! If you’re interested in a cozy getaway in the woods, check out all that Sunriver, Oregon has to offer for your spring vacation. Part of the high desert of Central Oregon, Sunriver is at about 4,000 feet above sea level and is nestled in the Deschutes National Forest in the Cascade Mountain range. Sunriver is an outdoorsman’s playground, yet it’s less than 20 miles from bigger, hip cities like Bend! You don’t want to miss spring in Sunriver!

Play Outside

The natural world around Sunriver really is the star of the show, and we won’t blame you if you want to spend most of your time playing outside. We’re used to it, and as a matter of fact, we totally encourage it! Take the time to reconnect with the earth, unplug from all your social media connections, and really get in touch with yourself and your family. Take a walk around Sunriver’s 30 miles of paved pathways or get out into the National Forest and go hiking! In Deschutes National Forest, you can explore endless miles of mountain biking trails. East of Sunriver, visit Lava River Care and check out the ancient, mile-long lava tunnel and cave tour!

Furry Friends

If you brought Fido along on your trip, you could enjoy miles of off-leash adventures on many National Forest roads and trails, as well as on most mountain biking trails in the Deschutes National Forest. Or visit one of Bend’s eight off-leash dog parks and make some new furry friends. Another great opportunity for bonding with an animal awaits at Sunriver Stables, where they offer a number of equestrian experiences. From pony rides for the kiddos, multiple lengths of trail rides, or personalized riding lessons, horseback riding is a great way to see some of the beauty around Sunriver.

Rest and Relax

After your full day of exploring adventures, grab dinner and one of our local cafes, restaurants or breweries, and then head home to sleep soundly in the privacy and comfort of your Sunriver vacation home.
