TRIP DETAILS

Tour Length:   Half Day Tour: 2-3 hours all inclusive  |  Full Day Tour: 5-6 hours all inclusive

Tour Departure: All tours will meet at The Bend Tour Company at the time that works best for you.  We will meet up for some coffee and snacks and discuss the plan for the day.  If planning for a Sunrise Tour, plan on meeting 1-2 hours prior to sunrise, and Sunset Tours will be meet 1-2 hours prior to scheduled sunset.  All tours will end back at the same place.

Weather Conditions: Although Bend is notorious for "300 day of sunshine a year" there are days where the weather is less than optimal.  In most cases we can reroute to another location with better weather outlook for the day.  Also keep in mind that inclement weather often results in some of the most dramatic and stunning photos! Just make sure you dress and prepare accordingly.

Hiking / Fitness: This will be up to you.  Once you book your tour we will send out a short survey, to better assess your goals for the tour and what you would like to see and be photographed doing. We can cater each tour to your needs. 

Food/Water: Other than coffee and a light snack at our meet up, we do not provide food on our outings. All participants should bring food/water to hold them through during the tour. We will have a cooler where you can store food and drink.

What to Wear: You should check the weather forecast prior to coming on the trip. Depending on where we decide to venture to, the altitude can make it cooler than it is in Bend, so I always encourage bringing layers. Don’t forget sunglasses and sunscreen. If it’s very cold and or windy, don’t forget a jacket, warm hat and some gloves. If rain or snow is in the forecast, bring a rain jacket. We recommend wearing sturdy footwear due to potential uneven terrain.

Restroom Facilities: Depending on where we decide to visit, there are limited to no facilities. If you need to use the restroom in the backcountry, we will have toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and a shovel available. You can dig a hole back behind a bush to do your business.

Cell Phones: Bring your cell phone along! They are great for capturing candid images. Note that cell service is limited during the drive. There are USB ports in our vehicles so bring a charging cable if you need one.

Group Size: 2-4 max - Private tour
