About the location
This is one of our favorite cities for outdoor adventures. We love that there are so many rad hikes to choose from, plus, the mountain biking and rock climbing near here is some of the best in the world. A trip to Bend wouldn't be complete without sampling its many breweries and farm-to-table restaraunts.
Explore old growth forests, waterfalls, vibrant blue lakes, epic mountain peaks, and rad rock formations surrounding Bend.
Take it easy and float the Deschutes river, be bold and give river surfing a try, or check out our favorite cliff jumping spot.
This guide is for anyone who wants to experience the hip city of Bend- it's great breweries, delicious food, and fun events- and likes exploring nature and the outdoors. I've included a 6 day sample itinerary with options to save some money by camping. If that's not your thing, don't worry, there are plenty of options for hotels & Airbnbs for you to relax at after a day exploring the Cascade Lakes, Mackenzie River, and Smith Rock. If you like active adventures and don't want to spend hours researching the best hikes around Bend, this guide has you in mind.
