The legendary floating and  fly-fishing destination, the Deschutes River, runs through Central Oregon. Along its banks, you’ll find world-class mountain bike trails, alpine and Nordic skiing, some of the state’s best beers and an unusually sophisticated populus for being out in the high desert of Oregon. Hit the slopes at Mt. Bachelor for a perfect winter getaway in Bend or choose Central Oregon as your next summer vacation to hike, bike, fish or paddle anything that can handle the unlimited amount of lakes and rivers dispersed throughout this area.
