Adventure and Exploration at Celilo Inn

We at the Celilo Inn love our wine and we love relaxation, but every now and then we like to stretch our legs and go adventuring. Lucky for our guests, Celilo Inn is located minutes away from as much exploration as one could ever want! Taking advantage of this, Celilo Inn has created the Adventure Package.


The main adventure within the Adventure Package is a white water rafting trip down the Deschutes or White Salmon River.


Deschutes River is one of the most popular destinations for white water rafting. This is most likely due to the exquisite canyon surroundings, perpetually great weather, and consistent water flow. White water rafting on the Deschutes River is fun for all ages and all experiences levels.


White Salmon River is a favorite destination for experienced and adventurous first time white water rafters.  This rafting excursion is full of multiple rapids in quick secession, and features the exciting Husum Falls.


After your white water rafting adventure, if you still are craving more don’t fret, there are plenty of other opportunities for exploration in The Dalles, OR and the surrounding areas.
