Journeys on the River

The Russian River is Healdsburg’s hidden gem. While vital to residents -- as a water source for both agriculture and humans and a beloved spot for recreation -- many visitors miss the splendors of the Russian River for the lure of the vines.
Now you can enjoy this special place too, by kayak, canoe or stand up paddle board.
Our concierge has crafted an unforgettable experience for you to paddle the river surrounded by secluded beaches, swimming holes, bird life, and lush landscapes.
Half or full day experiences are available for all skill levels with a choice of a simple or gourmet (think white table cloth) lunch. Customized family tours and dog-friendly floats may also be arranged.
Hotel Healdsburg and h2hotel have been longtime collaborators with Russian River Keeper -- the organization whose mission is to steward the health of the river -- and can arrange special tours with Riverkeeper Executive Director Don McEnhill and his team if you’d like to go deeper into river ecology, history, or politics.
We will provide a dry bag complete with sunscreen, snacks, towels, and a waterproof phone pouch so you can capture your experience.
