At a Glance

From the jagged alpine terrain of the Cascade Mountains to mossy rainforests and wave-battered headlands, discover why the Northwest landscape is as awe-inspiring as it is unique. Learn alongside experts as you explore some of the world’s grandest natural wonders.
Activity Level
Keep the Pace
Must be able to walk up to two miles a day. Be prepared for walking on uneven ground, unpaved trails or sandy beaches. There are steep stairs at some locations that will require you to be sure-footed. Elevations of 4,000-7,100 feet.

Best of all, you’ll…

  • At Crater Lake, marvel at a massive volcanic caldera holding the deepest lake.
  • Experience the thrills, excitement and breathtaking scenery of the Rogue River on an expert-led jet boat ride.
  • Touch trees rooted when Caesar ruled Rome in the world’s largest remaining stand of virgin redwoods.
