Oregon – Things to do

Oregon Attractions

Oregon is blessed with natural wonders, so make your holiday here a trip to remember with immersing yourself in the great outdoors. Head to the deepest lake in America, drive winding scenic byways, watch the waves sculpt sandstone shorelines, ride an exhilarating dune buggy and see abundant marine life from the rocky coastline. Oregon has incredible vineyards from the Willamette Valley to the Gorge, abundant microbreweries and coffee houses in Portland and in Eastern Oregon's Wild West you can see alpine peaks, wide open wildernesses and rocky desert canyons in cowboy country.

Mt Hood Railroad

Mount Hood

Crowned by 11 glaciers, the permanently snowy peaks of Mount Hood is home to six distinct ski areas. Lavender and wildflowers fill the valleys in spring and in late summer and then in the autumn bring berries and fruits galore. Winter is perfect for exploring in the snow and then relaxing by an open fire at one of the local lodges.

Painted Hills

See millions of years of history revealed in the layers of colourful rock at the John Day Fossil Beds. We recommend visiting late in the afternoon where the yellows, golds, blacks and reds are most vivid and the region is best explored when you hire a car or motorhome to travel around with your family.
