Welcome to Explore Del Norte

Outdoors Category

An outdoor adventure in Del Norte County can be as peaceful as sitting on a bluff catching a glimpse of a rare and beautiful bird, or as exhilarating as rushing down Klamath River whitewater rapids. You can simply sit back and relax while driving through the redwoods on Howland Hill Road, taking a Fun Bus Tour, riding the Sky Trail above the treetops, or cruising the river on a Jet Boat Tour. But, if you’re more inclined to engage in challenging physical adventures, you can go kayaking, river and ocean fishing, surfing, and hiking and biking on our more strenuous trails. And there is so much in between like golfing, canoeing, birdwatching or having a picnic on the beach.
