Adventure: Wanderlust Tours invented this one of a kind snowshoe tour under the light of our solar system’s twinkling lights. Cruising on snowshoes, our destination is a hand-carved amphitheater in the snow where a crackling bonfire awaits. Join us for a magical meander through the powdery snow-filled forest at night in the Cascade Mountains west of Sisters, Oregon.

Naturalist Guided Experience: Kicking through the snow-laden forest after the fall of darkness, our nose will, in part, lead us to a Michaelangelo-esque creation- an amazing snow built amphitheater. When the whiff of pine hits our nostrils anticipation will grow for a taste of delectable desserts and hazelnut espresso vodka-laced hot cocoa. Our naturalist guides will point out planets, stars and constellations as we relax in the glow of the fire. The hushed ambience of the forest will stir your soul. The magic of this wholly unique experience will remain instilled within you forever!

Location: Snowshoeing tours take place in the Deschutes National Forest of the Cascade Mountain Range of Oregon. New to off-trail snowshoeing? Let Wanderlust Tours do the driving and teach you fun snowshoeing techniques and tricks. All tours include instruction. Wear winter boots and powder/ski pants to keep your feet and legs dry while snowshoeing.
