Planning Your Vacation With Our Sunriver Activities Guide

You’ve taken the vacation time, purchased your airline tickets, and made your reservations with Sunriver Pines; now it’s time to start planning what to bring, where to go, and what should be moved to the top of your list for things to do in Bend, Oregon, and we are here to help you with all of that! It can get stressful and worrisome trying to figure it out by yourself, but since you chose us for your vacation accommodations, we do everything we can to make it easy for you.

Packing for the Trip

Many of our homes come with washer and dryers, so packing light is the way to go. If traveling in the winter, wear your heaviest stuff on the plane (winter coats make great blankets or pillows) and leave the lighter articles of clothing for your suitcase. There are places to rent outdoor equipment while you’re here, so leave your ski pants and kayaks at home. Comfortable shoes, your toiletries, a laptop if you have one, and maybe a camera are the only other things you absolutely need to bring with you. Leaving room in your suitcase for souvenirs and memorabilia for your return trip is highly recommended! If you bring your pets during your winter vacation to Sunriver, you might want to think about providing a coat and booties to protect them against the cold.

Things to do in Bend, Oregon

There’s so much to do while you’re here, you may need to visit more than once just to get it all in. Luckily, our hometown is a beautiful place to see over and over again!

Animal lovers and future astronomers may want to visit the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory, where they can get up close and personal with the wildlife that makes our corner of Oregon their natural habitat and take a peek at the sun through filtered telescopes that protect your eyes.

Another exciting activity that we love and feel should be moved to the top of your bucket list is taking a horseback tour. Sunriver Stables offers trail and pony rides (for the smaller travelers in your group!) and getting to see the Oregon landscape from atop one of their gentle giants is an experience that may end up being the highlight of your entire vacation.

Skiing in the winter, pickleball in the summer, hiking, biking—our Sunriver activities guide is a long one, so hurry up and get here so you can get started!
