SAANO ADVENTURES: Kayaking, Yoga and Wine Tasting

REGISTER AT WWW.SAANOADVENTURES.COM

Today you'll experience a remote stretch of river, shared only with nesting bald eagles, river otters, turtles, and great blue herons. We'll paddle 11-miles, under the shade of oak, and cottonwood trees, stopping to cool off in the water and enjoy the quiet serenity of the wilderness.

Our team of professional guides are trained to ensure that you're having the best experience, both fun and safe, possible.

We're strong advocates of healthy living, and nothing agrees more with healthy living than yoga. Our professional yoga instructors are masters in their art, and passionate about connecting with you. We have a few favorite locations to practice yoga while on the river, and we'd like to share a few of those locations with you. 

Along the banks of this beautiful river, we'll share in an hour of relaxing backcountry yoga, then we'll head over to a local vineyard for a tasting of some of California's best wines and explanation of the winemaking process.
