Paulina Plunge

The Paulina Plunge Downhill Waterfall Mt.Bike Tour is a wet and wild family adventure for all active ages 4 to 70. We will descend over six miles down a smooth forest trail, where our friendly guides will lead you to six pristine waterfalls and two natural water slides. Exploring this natural water park will be the highlight of your Central Oregon vacation.

Gravity will be your friend, as you descend deep into the Oregon back country. Along the way you will learn the legends of the ancient indigenous people and the saga of Chief Paulina. During the length of the trip, you will descend over 2,500 vertical feet on your mountain bike. That translates into four 1-1/2 mile biking segments to each waterfall stop. The group will visit up to 6 pristine waterfalls, ranging in height from 10 to 40 feet, as well as 2 safe natural waterslides to explore and play in.

This region is considered by archaeologists to be one of the richest sights in the Northwest. Native Americans have lived in the shadow of this dynamic volcano for at least 10,000 years. When the group arrives at the waterfalls below, we’ll indulge in the traditional Paulina Plunge and then break for a snack lunch.

TOUR COST: $65 per person for all ages. Recommended age 4-70 years. Mountain bike, helmet and day pack are included.

Canoe Tours @ Wanderlust Tours
Sep 23 all-day

Paddle the glassy waters of a spectacular mountain lake as Wanderlust Tours’ renowned guides highlight tucked-away spots on these beautiful lakes that you may never find by going on your own – be sure to watch for otter, mink, osprey and eagles, and bring a camera for the best mountain views in Central Oregon.

Enjoy a day or moonlight canoe tour. Spend 2 1/4 hours on the water for relaxation and soaking in the beauty with Wanderlust Tours! Wear your swimsuit for a refreshing dip.

You’ll see parts of these large lakes that you can only see by canoe; you’ll paddle into the secluded fingers and coves created by the basaltic lava flows of Mt. Bachelor. Surrounded by the Three Sisters and Broken Top mountains, canoeing provides the ultimate experience in this area!

Paulina Plunge

The Paulina Plunge Downhill Waterfall Mt.Bike Tour is a wet and wild family adventure for all active ages 4 to 70. We will descend over six miles down a smooth forest trail, where our friendly guides will lead you to six pristine waterfalls and two natural water slides. Exploring this natural water park will be the highlight of your Central Oregon vacation.

Gravity will be your friend, as you descend deep into the Oregon back country. Along the way you will learn the legends of the ancient indigenous people and the saga of Chief Paulina. During the length of the trip, you will descend over 2,500 vertical feet on your mountain bike. That translates into four 1-1/2 mile biking segments to each waterfall stop. The group will visit up to 6 pristine waterfalls, ranging in height from 10 to 40 feet, as well as 2 safe natural waterslides to explore and play in.

This region is considered by archaeologists to be one of the richest sights in the Northwest. Native Americans have lived in the shadow of this dynamic volcano for at least 10,000 years. When the group arrives at the waterfalls below, we’ll indulge in the traditional Paulina Plunge and then break for a snack lunch.

TOUR COST: $65 per person for all ages. Recommended age 4-70 years. Mountain bike, helmet and day pack are included.
