The Cape Perpetua area of the Oregon Coast is blessed with a temperate climate, clean air, spectacular headlands and lush forests. A sense of isolation, adventure and a learning experience all make wonderful reasons to escape to the coast for an energizing yet relaxing getaway. Natural history classes precede a naturalist-led interpretive walk in the rainforest already in bloom. Learn simple, basic tai chi techniques (all levels). The chef at Heceta Head Lighthouse Bed & Breakfast will demonstrate and teach how to prepare the famous seven-course gourmet breakfast that you'll be served. Let the coast rejuvenate you!


Highlights

• Practice making balanced food choices on your retreat and learn to maintain healthy eating practices with a cooking demonstration led by a chef at your B&B.
• Hikes with a naturalist amid old-growth rainforest and to Cape Perpetua enhance the energizing sense of escape you enjoy.
• Expert-led yoga, qigong and tai chi relax and rejuvenate you, helping you get the most out of your Oregon Coast escape.
