Full description
Experience a tandem kayak lake tour and enjoy the best mountainous views in Central Oregon. Meet your local guide in the heart of Bend, Oregon. Along with the rest of your group, make your way out of town and up into the Cascade mountain lakes where your kayaking adventure begins. Receive a lesson on kayaking safety measures before climbing into your tandem sit-on-top kayak.  Navigate your way through little-known caves, bays, and wetlands with the help of your naturalist guide. Keep a look out for the otters, mink, osprey and eagles that inhabit this area, and bring a camera for the best mountain views in Central Oregon. After around 2 hours of paddling and admiring your surroundings, you'll have time for a quick dip in the lakes to cool off.

The guide was nice he loves wild nature and has a lot of knowledge about it, so it's great to share both activities between the kayak and discover wildlife. The lake is huge and the water very clean with a lot of fishes rainbow trouts, perch. We saw beavers and their houses, herons and we spoke about trees and their environment. It's great to meet people that they can practice sport but integrate it inside the environment to avoid the destruction of plants or water etc. We will return there in winter for skiing and snowshoes. because these mountains are so beautiful and still wilds.
