AdventureWenatchee is pleased to announce we will begin offering outdoor guided tours — mountain biking, hiking, trail running, cycling and bird watching — in the Wenatchee Valley and the surrounding foothills of the Cascade Mountains in late spring 2015.
Our professional guides will take you off the beaten path to explore areas only us locals know about — including places like the Horse Lake Reserve, a Foothills area protected from development, and the Horan Natural Area, a Columbia River estuary home to dozens of birds. Along the way, you will learn about plant life, geology, wildlife, and, in some cases, fire history.
Our region lies in a transition zone between the Cascade crest and the Columbia River plateau. So that means views aplenty, including ones of the high peaks to the west, basalt cliffs to the east, and the meandering Great River of the West below.
AdventureWenatchee also will be providing tours for company entertainment and recruiting needs, retreats and meetings. Please check back in the coming days and weeks for more info or call us today at (509) 630-2090.

The free ride asks participants to move no faster than 10 mph and to remain silent during the procession — all as a way to honor those who have been killed or injured while cycling on public roadways, and to raise awareness that cyclists have a legal right to public roadways. Read More
