A FEW OF THE MANY WAYS
To Enjoy Central Oregon
Tree-lined streets frame your view of the snow-kissed Cascades, as Drake Park hosts a steady stream of farmers markets, musicians and family picnics. Stroll the cobblestone sidewalks, while you enjoy an array of popular restaurants, breweries and unique street shopping.
Host to more breweries per capita than any other city in Oregon, Bend invites visitors to tour the facilities, sip and sample every brew imaginable—from the traditional to completely unique.
Hot Air Ballooning
Take in the sights of Central Oregon as you leisurely float over the landscape from the basket of your hot air balloon. Jump in to assist with the inflation of the balloon if you like and relax in the comfort of the basket while you take in the views at your own pace.
While the views from Pronghorn are spectacular in their own right, our daylight and sunset helicopter tours will give you an unmatched view of Smith Rock, the lava lands and our vast high desert, not to mention the views of the nine peaks of the Cascades on the horizon.
Volcano and Cave Tours
Our landscape is marked with reminders from our volcanic past—lava flows, caves and even an active volcano are visible and available for your exploration. Our tours provide a unique and safe way to explore a part of Central Oregon unseen to most visitors.
One of Central Oregon’s most unique activities combines biking and hiking as you descend over 2,500 feet to visit six pristine waterfalls and explore two safe natural watersides. Two 1/2 mile nature hikes will be required to reach the enchanting waterfalls and slides below.
