Are you tired of taking the same old summer trips? Do you want to fill your favorite season with fun and excitement?


Consider spending your summer vacation in Sisters, Oregon! As a mecca of outdoor adventure, the area truly comes to life during the summer season. The roads are open, the weather is mild, and the landscapes are beautiful. It’s your chance to enjoy some of our most amazing activities at their very best! 


Ready to start planning? Prepare to seize the summer with these top Sisters activities. 


Take to the trails. Some of the best hiking and biking trails in the state are within easy reach of your Sisters rental. You can find a trail for every type of adventure, from easy strolls through scenic forest to challenging climbs up mountain peaks. You can tackle a thrilling mountain biking trail or ride in comfort around the Cascade lakes. Whatever you choose, the season’s mild weather and vibrant landscapes are the perfect setting for summer exploration. 


Golf. If you plan to spend the summer working on your swing, Sisters will fit perfectly in your schedule. There are two world-class championship golf courses within minutes of the city, each offering fine fairways and challenging hazards around every hole. Aspen Lakes is one of the top-ranked courses in Oregon and features signature red sand traps that stand out against blue skies, bentgrass fairways and snow-covered mountains. You can also book a time at Black Butte Ranch, a local resort just 10 miles west of Sisters that offers two 18-hole courses to choose from. If you’re bringing your golf buddies, be sure to book our private 5-bedroom home on the 7th hole for easy access! 


Fishing. Are you a fan of fishing? Then cast a line for some trophy-sized trout! Sisters country has a strong reputation for solid fly fishing. The Metolius and Deschutes rivers are popular places for photo-worthy prizes, or you can make your way to one of many mountain lakes to cast in fewer crowds. You can also book a guided tour to get some local tips from expert anglers (we suggest this local company).


Horseback Riding. You can’t visit an Old West town without channeling your inner cowboy! Horseback riding is a fun and convenient way to explore the Three Sisters wilderness with ease. Black Butte Ranch offers guided trips for riders of all ages and abilities, from beginner trips through scenic meadows with mountain views to more advanced tours that wind deep into Deschutes National Forest. If you’re new to the saddle, be sure to sign up for a quick lesson before setting out. 


Rock Climbing. Sisters is just 40 minutes from the birthplace of U.S. sport climbing, which is a great reason to add ‘scaling a cliff’ to your summer itinerary. Head to Smith Rock State Park and choose from close to 2,000 routes that range in difficulty to test your skills (and your nerve) as you scale steep volcanic climbs and crumbly basalt columns. Even the lower heights are staggering, so be sure to sign up for their guided services if you’re new to the sport. 


Whitewater Rafting. There’s no better way to beat the heat than with a wild whitewater rafting adventure! The McKenzie River is one of the best rafting spots in the region, offering a steady plunge of exciting dips, thrilling rapids and scenic views. The Deschutes River is another great choice – it offers two separate courses in the Upper and Lower areas, with the former being short and great for small children. You’ll find numerous outfitters in the area that offer gear and guided tours of the area’s best river-running experiences.
