Hike & SUP Oregon’s Alps

Hike and Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) in the Wallowa Mountains, known as “Oregon’s Swiss Alps”!  Very different from the Cascade Mountains, these Wallowa Mountains in northeastern Oregon shoot up to nearly 10,000 feet and are more similar to the Rockies. On this trip you will do amazing outdoor activities each day: stand up paddleboarding on Wallowa Lake, exploring the local rivers, and spectacular rugged hikes into the Eagle Cap Wilderness, the “crown jewel” of the Wallowa Mountains.  Of course, there also will be time to chill at the camp we rented, swim at the beach at Wallowa Lake, and to get to know the other new students on your trip. You will stay at a camp College Outdoors has rented, eat great food in the camp’s dining hall, have access to showers and flush toilets in the bathrooms at the camp, and reside in rustic cabins there for the week.
