Visit Del Norte County
Ancient redwoods reaching hundreds of feet into the sky. Pristine waters of the Wild and Scenic Rivers flow freely as they meander through the forests and empty into the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Del Norte County is a place to let go and enjoy the wonders of unspoiled nature and abundant wildlife in amazing diverse habitats.
You’ll find rugged outdoor adventure like whitewater rafting, kayaking, camping, and fishing that makes your heart pound with excitement. It’s where you can take in the fresh sights, sounds and smells of abundant plant, marine and wildlife without interruption from the hurried outside world. Stay with us in a comfortable bed and breakfast, a convenient modern hotel, a rugged fishing cabin, a pretty inn or a family friendly campground. Many of our properties feature ocean-views.
There are trips and tours available for river lovers—try an exhilarating jet boat tour! We have horseback riding for all levels. If you enjoy birding, you have found paradise! Del Norte is famous for our abundant bird population. We offer birding tours year round and other Birding Festivals throughout the year.
