Imagine a Christmas spent in the beautiful Oregon countryside, with pine trees stretching for miles and a welcoming fire crackling in the hearth. Spend your days snow-tubing or hiking along the Deschutes River, and evenings relaxing in front of a glowing fire. It’s the perfect time of year to cozy up in Sunriver, complete with whimsical Christmas events, great local dining, seasonal activities and plenty of winter recreation. Explore Sunriver Christmas in 2019!
Outdoor Activities Made for the Season
There’s plenty to do during this Christmas to take advantage of Sunriver’s natural beauty. At the nearby Mt. Bachelor, you can enjoy miles of trails for skiing, as well as snow tubing and cross-country skiing. Spend the days leading up to Christmas exploring the mountainside or go for a Christmas morning run on the slopes—on Christmas Eve and Day they hold their Santa on the Slopes event, where you might be able to score a present or two! In town, The Pavilion at the Sunriver Resort offers ice-skating all month long. The SHARC recreation center hosts a black-light snow-tubing experience at night, complete with glowsticks and hot chocolate—dates for this year are November 30th, December 21st and 28th. If you venture over to Sunriver Stables, you can go on a real horse-drawn sleigh ride along the Deschutes River, taking in the scenery while cuddled under thick blankets.
Cheerful Christmas Events and Holiday Dining
As their Grand Illumination tree lighting takes place in November, you can expect The Village at Sunriver to be decked out in holiday decorations come December. Stop by to marvel at their giant Christmas tree, and pick up a few last-minute gifts from local artists at one of the many boutique shops. This December, they hold their annual Santa’s Workshop, where you can make your own holiday keepsake and enjoy a hot cocoa bar. You can find the workshop on Fridays from Nov. 29—Dec. 13, and Saturdays from Nov. 30—Dec. 14, and daily from Dec. 20—26 (closed on Christmas). For holiday dining, the Sunriver Resort offers their Great Hall Christmas Dinner buffet, or you can find multi-course plates at Carson’s–reservations are required for both, so plan ahead!
