Nature lovers can opt to just paddle their way through wine country, or choose a tour that combines a kayak trip with a bike ride or a hike through the area. There are a number of companies that offer kayak tours down the Russian River, some through calm areas and some that include rapids.
Kayak tours tend to start in the late morning and run through the early afternoon, with stops for a picnic lunch and visits to area wineries along the way. Kayaking also allows you to check out wildlife along the river, from snowy egrets and salmon to scenic osprey nesting areas.
Do you prefer an adventure with a bit less in the physical exertion department? Try a decadent limo tour of wine country instead.
