Hike and Paddle in the Wallowa Mountains, known as “Oregon’s Swiss Alps”! Different from the Cascade Mountains, the jagged Wallowa Mountains in Northeastern Oregon reach up to nearly 10,000 feet and are similar to the Rockies. This trip provides amazing outdoor activities each day; canoeing on Wallowa Lake, and spectacular rugged hikes into the Eagle Cap Wilderness, known as the “crown jewel” of the Wallowa Mountains. Of course, there will also be time to relax, swim in the lake, and get to know the other new students on your trip. You will stay in tents at Wallowa Lake State Park, cook delicious meals on camp stoves, and have access to showers and flush toilets in the bathrooms at the campground.
