Learn about Oregon’s wine country and immerse yourself in the beautiful natural environment that makes this place special. First we’ll start with a brief overview of our day, then we’ll get on the river. We’ll hear about the local history and learn about wildlife from our award winning naturalist guides. You’ll enjoy the mellow current as we work our way downstream amidst wildlife, amazing views and clear Oregon streams. Finally, we’ll end the day with a trip to one of our local vineyards for artisan wine tasting and a delicious riverside meal.
Our winery tours vary based mostly on time of year. Water levels fluctuate seasonally here in Oregon. Due to heavy rains and snow over the winter, we have high flows during the early spring. Our early season (April – May) trips are located on the Marys River and include up to class II whitewater! This is an excellent trip for our more adventurous paddlers. Early season trips head to Harris Bridge or Cardwell Hill Cellars.
While our early season trips are a bit more adventurous, kayaking trips later in the year (June – Sept.) start further down the watershed on the Willamette river. As a result, summer is perfect for first time kayakers, beginners or folks interested in a mellow float down to wine country. Our summer winery visits include a rotation of Ankeny Vineyards, and Airlie Winery and we’re working hard to develop more destinations! The wine of the Willamette Valley is waiting for you. Come explore on a winery tour with us!
