1. Bend: Cascade Mountains Snowshoeing Tour and Bonfire
Enjoy a one-of-a-kind snowshoe tour with a naturalist guide under the light of the night sky in Bend, Oregon. Cruising on snowshoes through the Cascade Mountains, wander to a hand-carved amphitheater in the snow where a crackling bonfire awaits. Your tour takes place in the area around Mt. Bachelor and the surrounding Deschutes National Forest of the Cascade Mountain Range of Oregon. Don't worry if you are new to off-trail snowshoeing as each tour starts with an introduction to the best techniques and tricks. Kicking through the snow-laden forest after dark, walk to a snow-built amphitheater. Breathe in the smell of fresh pine and sit down to a range of desserts with hazelnut espresso vodka-laced hot cocoa. Relax in the glow of the fire as your guide points out planets, stars, and constellations.
