What you'll do

Your Bend Lava Adventure tour with Outriders Northwest begins at our trailhead location just outside of Bend, Oregon. I will meet the guest with all ATVs & helmets ready for them to go explore the vast volcano lands of Central Oregon. After sizing up helmets and presenting a safety & operational tutorial the guests will be ready to set off. This is a hands on experience and all guests will have their own 2020 Polaris XP 1000 to drive or ride in with their group of up to 4 guests per ATV. The tour begins with some exciting Ponderosa Pine forest trails that wind through the Deschutes National Forest. As are guests drive the machines, they will be able to enjoy the local fauna and flora in this unique forest setting. We will then arrive on the hidden lava flows that were created nearly 8000 years ago from Paulina Mountain, a local shield volcano. At the lava flow, guests will have the rare opportunity to hike on petrified lav formations and appreciate the dramatic landscapes that were formed when flowing. The adventure continues on as the tours climbs higher and higher through the high desert surrounding and ending up on top of Fuzztail butte. From this breathtaking viewpoint the guests will be able to soak in a 360 panoramic vista of the entire Central Oregon region. From 7 mountain peaks in the Cascade range to the drifting high desert far to the east.

Being a native Oregonian I have always had a passion and love for the natural beauty that is a hidden gem throughout the state. My love for the outdoors landed me in Bend were the mountains, desert and rivers all collide in an amazing landscape of diversity. I love sharing my knowledge of the local volcano history and unique wildlife when exploring with my guests. Having the opportunity to show off the ancient Paulina Lava Flows and shield volcano buttes is an incredible encounter for me and my guests alike.
