Everyone knows that the family that plays together, stays together. At Sunriver Resort, the cliché becomes reality. Here, all ages can enjoy an array of fresh-air adventures that will excite, educate and entertain. Don’t miss these activities during your next visit.
Are you a family that loves biking? Welcome to paradise. Sunriver is home to more than 40 miles of spectacular bike paths, suitable for all levels of cycling experience – and the resort makes it easy to get out and enjoy them. The adventure begins at the Bike Barn, where more than 300 bikes are tuned up and ready to ride. The experts here can get you set with the perfect bike for everyone in your crew. For a readymade bike journey, hook up with the Bike Barn team for an intermediate bike tour to Benham Falls, one of Central Oregon's most gorgeous natural destinations. You'll cruise through lovely landscape of the Deschutes National Forest, soaking up the scenery and enjoying the fresh air.
You’ve probably done some hikes with your family. But you’ve probably never done a hike like this. Wanderlust Tours' journey into the belly of an ancient volcano takes you past mountains of pumice and obsidian (black volcanic glass) and the shores of sparkling Pauling Lake. You'll pass through an old-growth hemlock forest and marvel at towering lava flow. For active adventure-seeking families, this hike is a must-do, and at just two miles, it's accessible for most ages and abilities.
The Deschutes River is the perfect place for on-the-water activities that all ages will love. Located on the shore of the river, Sunriver Marina rents canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, tubes and more – everything you need for an unforgettable float. For the ultimate Deschutes adventure, sign up for the Family Fun Float. The resort’s expert river guides will lead you two miles down the river in a six-person raft. During the float, soak in the unbeatable Cascade Mountain scenery and the gorgeous early-evening high desert sunset.
After the float, enjoy refreshments, play some games and unwind to musical entertainment.
Even though Sunriver and the surrounding areas are famously beautiful, they look even better on horseback. At Sunriver Stables, guided trail rides through a forested landscape are available for guests of all experience levels, from beginner to advanced riders (instruction is provided prior to all rides). For little buckaroos looking to get in on the fun, pony rides are available for kids ages 2-6. Sunriver Stables’ Shetland ponies are just the right size for smaller riders – and they are friendly and unbelievable cute (you’re going to want pictures!).
Sunriver is a dream destination for the dedicated golfer. But what about the rest of the family? Glow Golf on the Meadows nine-hole putting course is the perfect way to get everyone in your crew involved. When the sun goes down, you can try to score a hole-in-one using glow-in-the-dark golf balls. Check in at the Merchant Trader Gift Shop (Sun-Wed until 8:00pm, Thurs-Sat until 9:00pm) or at the first tee.
