Kayaking is a workout that surrounds you with nature, like chopping down a tree or escaping from a coffin. Look alive with this Groupon.
$24 a 90-Minute Willamette Falls Kayak Tour ($49 Value)
Meeting at Clackamette Park, guides furnish kayakers of any skill level with all the equipment they'll need to enjoy their tour. After smoothly launching into the Willamette River, the narrated tour heads upstream. Paddlers drink in the sights as they pass both man- and nature-made architecture such as bridges and rock walls, eventually reaching the base of Willamette Falls-one of the largest natural waterfalls in the country.
Northwest River Guides
The outdoor experts of Northwest River Guides lead whitewater-rafting, kayaking, and standup-paddleboarding trips on local waters that range from the Willamette to Klickitat Rivers. They also prepare adventurers for independent outings through kayaking classes, including advanced training in swift-water rescue. For those seeking once-in-a-lifetime experiences or to bolster their strange-and-exotic-water collections, Northwest’s guides organize international expeditions to such destinations as Canada, Costa Rica, and Scandinavia. Members of American Whitewater, the Outdoor Alliance, and Portland-based nonprofit We Love Clean Rivers, guides advocate preservation and stewardship during each trip.
