Glacier-carved landscapes, thick evergreen forests and fossil-sprinkled deserts surround chic towns and untamed shoreline in this coastal state.
The coastal state of Oregon is made up of pockets of contrasting scenery. You can hike up volcanic depressions, clamber through forest-backed sand dunes, visit Mount Hood’s perennial snowfields or tour the rolling vineyards of Willamette Valley, all within its boundary.
From the shimmering Crater Lake and the Painted Hills, smeared in vibrant hues of red and yellow, to Cannon Beach’s poster child, Haystack Rock, our specialists have visited the region extensively. They can use their first-hand knowledge to meticulously design a trip that takes you to some of Oregon’s highlights and through its contrasting landscapes, adding in experiences based on your interests and tastes.
Strewn between the state’s mountain passes and dense forests are plenty of lively towns and cities. Spend some time soaking up Portland’s laid-back lifestyle and sampling dishes at its many food carts (the city was the first to introduce the concept). Or, stay in Bend to hop between its growing collection of microbreweries.
Along the state’s wild coastline, explore Florence’s wind-whipped sand dunes and unusual tree islands on a dune buggy ride, and taste Newport’s rich maritime heritage through its fresh seafood.
