Charting a Course Down the Russian River

July 03, 2018

Summertime is adventure time here in Sonoma County, and if you’re in the mood for some outdoor thrills, we have just the thing for you. Burke’s Canoe Trips offers guests the chance to experience a beautiful and energizing ten-mile, self-guided canoe journey down the Russian River. All along the route, you’ll discover ideal spots to picnic, swim, or just sit back and marvel at the wonders of the wild (in addition to the gorgeous foliage, you’re most likely to see ospreys, otters, turtles, egrets, and Great Blue Herons). The tour departure point is conveniently located less than a mile from our hotel, but don’t think you can just wander over anytime and grab a canoe. These tours are very popular, so it’s best to call ahead to book a reservation. Whether you’re looking to take a solo trip or enjoy the day with friends or family, Burke’s has just what you need to reconnect with the splendor of the great outdoors.
