Outdoor Recreation

Hiking

Whether you hike or wike (hike while in wine country), you will find lots of vineyards, rolling hills, and beautiful vistas as you explore the trails in Dundee and the surrounding area. From the Harvey Creek Trail to the Winter’s Hill Vineyard’s native oak tree savannah, you will delight in the scenery and wine tasting along your route. Many local wineries offer guided or self-guided hikes.

Paddling

Take advantage of Oregon’s beautiful summer months by exploring the majestic Willamette River which flows through Dundee. Kayakers, canoers, and paddle boarders can cruise the river at their own pace.

Horseback Riding

Sip. Saddle. Ride. That’s the mantra of Equestrian Wine Tours which lead two-hour trail and vineyard rides atop Tennessee Walking Horses, the perfect breed for riders of all abilities. Most afternoons from early spring through late autumn, guests can ride through leafy vineyards, oak and fir woodlands, and take in views of Mt. Hood, Oregon’s iconic peak, and the snow-capped beauty of the Oregon Coast Range.

Hot Air Ballooning

Fly high over the Willamette Valley with Vista Balloon Adventures, the Pacific Northwest’s largest and oldest hot air balloon company. Book a balloon for up to 10 people or a romantic ride for two. During your Vista adventure, which begins at dawn, you’ll see the wine making hills of the Willamette Valley, the twisting Willamette River, and 10 mountain peaks.
