Sometimes you just want to get away from daily stressors and set your sights on relaxation.  Luckily Sunriver has a host of ways to relax, and they’re right at your fingertips.

Go on a family horseback ride at the Sunriver Stables.

Those looking to relax while still staying active may enjoy golfing on one of the spectacular golf courses, playing tennis, or going on a soothing horseback ride.

Families will love visiting the High Desert Museum and seeing the many animals and raptors on display, swimming at the SHARC aquatic center, floating the Deschutes River on a lazy afternoon, and stand up paddle boarding.

If you’d like to dedicate time to personal wellness and are looking forward to recharging while you relax, the Anjou Spa is an amazing place to spend the day, or you may enjoy doing some yoga.
