4 Days/3 Nights
WARM SPRINGS, OR
Class III

Orion Expeditions is teaming up with Geologists, and an Astronomer for our first ever multi-day eco-adventure trip. Rockstars: A Geology & Astronomy Deschutes River Trip blends aspects of recreation with environmental education, helping to spark a deeper curiosity for all those adventure-seekers out there.

When it comes to experiential learning opportunities, Rockstars is a trip all it’s own giving participants a taste of adventure paired with lessons in Natural History. This trip is truly the best of both worlds: Day & Night, Earth & Sky. Experience exceptional views, delectable meals, intriguing geologic formations, and star-filled desert skies.

A different take on a typical multi-day river trip, Rockstars is a formative collaboration between Orion Expeditions and Environmental Educators, giving our participants a vividly unique journey through the Deschutes River Basin.

Program Features
-An all-inclusive Deschutes river trip including delicious meals, all necessary river gear, professional river, geology, and astronomy guides, and a courtesy shuttle arranged upon arrival at the river.
