Sun Country Tours

You’ll feel like you’re on the set of an old Western as you journey down 13 miles of the Lower Deschutes River, which winds through a big-sky, desert canyon. Like all our whitewater trips, the All Day Adventure features thrilling Class III rapids, including the infamous Boxcar Rapids, known for its huge kicker wave! There are also peaceful stretches perfect for taking in the incredible scenery.

The All Day Adventure includes a grilled lunch served riverside, where you may also choose to enjoy some beach volleyball. There is also swimming, and even an option of floating through the Upper Elevator rapid outside the boat in your life jacket!

Ouzel Outfitters

The North Umpqua River offers our most exciting paddle rafting experience as well as delivering some of the most spectacular scenery in the Northwest. Towering Douglas fir forests line this steep and rugged canyon, shading the crystal clear water as it cascades through steep gorges and boulder-strewn rapids. The North Umpqua is raftable all summer, but the best time to go is in June or July.

At Ouzel Outfitters, our trips are fully outfitted and inclusive. This means that we don’t add additional fees for launch and permit costs, transportation fees, peak weekend fees, camping gear rentals and other items necessary to the trip. These items are included in one price. We are also willing to go “above and beyond” assisting with pre and post-trip itineraries, lodging and helping to arrange other activities for your group.

Our trip planners are tailored to the specific trip and are thorough, providing clothing lists, transportation information, lodging options and much more with many useful links to maps, weather reports and items of interest in the area. Knowledgeable reservation staff are always on hand to answer questions. Our goal is to take the guess-work out of preparing for your trip.
