Wanderlust Tours invented this one-of-a-kind snowshoe tour under the stars. 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. Naturalist guides lead us to an amazing snow-built amphitheater, where we will enjoy dessert and hazelnut espresso vodka-laced hot cocoa. Naturalist guides will point out planets, stars and constellations as we relax in the glow of the fire. The magic of this unique experience will remain with you forever.
