Kayak & Hike Yurt Trip
Not far south of Portland lies Champoeg State Park, a gorgeous destination of forests, fields, and wetlands which make it the perfect place for days of kayaking and hiking.
We’ll explore some peaceful stretches of the Willamette river, where you can see great blue heron, rare Western Bluebirds, and even otter. There are no rapids on this stretch of river, so no kayaking experience is necessary - we’ll teach you everything you need to know! On land, we’ll explore the hiking trails, fascinating history of the park, and maybe even play a round of disk golf. One day we’ll take a day trip to visit the beaches and bluffs of the Oregon Coast! At night we’ll stay in cozy yurts or cabins, or you can choose to sleep solo in a tent. Read the detailed trip description to learn more.
