From its dramatic coastlines to its breathtaking forests, you can't go past all that Oregon has to offer. Here is just a fraction of what you can find in this gorgeous state. The beautiful beaches Do you like the sound of ending up on a vast beach - with it all to yourself? That's entirely possible along the expansive coastline of Oregon. With a whopping 363 miles - that's around 584 kilometres - to explore, you're bound to find your own special spot. Must-see highlights include the crashing and churning waves at the Devil's Churn and Punch Bowl rock formations, plus whale watching at Depoe Bay. The rest is yours to discover for yourself! Portland The city of Portland is found in Oregon - and it's seriously impressive. From its artistic credentials, such as being home to the world's largest indie bookstore, to its fantastic reputation for gourmet cuisine, it simply can't be missed. With a friendly, upbeat atmosphere, you can spend days or weeks in this city enjoying the cafes and restaurants, complete with delectable wine to boot grown in the region. Then there's the city's stunning design, from its twinkling skyscrapers to its pristinely manicured gardens. Head to the Downtown to take in the commercial heart of the city, complete with plenty of museums and tourist attractions, and stop by the Pearl District for a taste of trendy art and eateries. Mount Hood Mount Hood is one seriously awe-inspiring mountain. Whether you visit in winter, when its six ski fields are an absolute dream for powder-seekers worldwide, or during the summer when its hiking trails are blooming with flowers, you won't be disappointed. Check out the gorgeous glaciers, luxurious lodges and beautiful lakes - and that's just for starters. Crater Lake You’d be hard pressed to find a more beautiful sight than looking down from the rim of Crater Lake onto its deep blue water. The surrounding cliffs are up to 600 metres high, so add in the fact that Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States and has stunningly transparent water, it certainly makes for a spectacular view. Open all year long, Crater Lake National Park has fantastic hiking and great cross-country skiing in winter. Enquire Now First name* Last name* Email* Phone How can we help?
