Southern Oregon is home to world-class fishing and rafting rivers, mountains for skiing, biking and hiking, and green valleys that produce award-winning wines. It's also home to North America's deepest lake and Oregon's only National Park - Crater Lake - which graces the back of Oregon's state quarter.
From the valleys to the high desert, wildlife and nightlife share space. Southern Oregon is home to a pair of well-known attractions - the Britt Music Festival and Ashland's Oregon Shakespeare Festival - and to dozens of museums, art galleries and theaters.
With more than 250 of the state's 300 wineries calling the Willamette Valley home, it makes sense that the name is synonymous with wine country. Although the region has everything from large producing estates to small boutique artisan wineries, it also abounds with world-renowned chefs using the local bounty to whip up culinary masterpieces, and fun-filled attractions the whole family can enjoy.
An outdoor mecca, the Willamette Valley is perfect for a wide range of activities from high-flying adventures like skydiving, to a casual bike ride across historic and scenic covered bridges. Collegiate sporting events, mountain biking, running and golf are just a few more of the many adventures that compose the region.
Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge
From the 11,245-foot peak of its most recognized landmark, majestic Mount Hood, to the fertile Willamette Valley farms where homegrown specialties include tulips, berries, Christmas trees and wines, Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory is ripe with activities to be explored.
Year-round recreation for all skill levels stretches from skiing on the mountain to white-water rafting rivers, kayaking lakes, hiking trails, biking, and hitting the links for a round of golf. It doesn't end there. Don't miss the unsurpassed beauty of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area - 77 waterfalls are scattered amongst numerous hiking trails and campgrounds, while a windsurfing paradise awaits the waters of the largest river in the Pacific Northwest.
Central Oregon is full of adventure for the outdoor enthusiast - activities range from golfing, skiing, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, and river rafting. Summer evenings often include cultural events and concerts along with our spectacular mountain sunsets.
The term "semi-arid desert" might seem contradictory, until you experience the over 500 miles of rivers cutting through our forests and more than 150 pristine mountain lakes. Explore one of the wonderful State Parks nearby for hiking, camping, boating and fishing. There is so much to do ... all within a short drive of Bend, Sunriver, Sisters, La Pine, Redmond, Madras, and Prineville in beautiful Central Oregon.
Eastern Oregon is a place of awesome beauty - from Hells Canyon's wildest rapids to the glimmering peaks of the Wallowas, from the rolling wheat fields of the Columbia River Plateau to the rugged breaks of the Steens Mountain. The skies are wide and blue, and beautiful scenery unfolds around every bend in the road. Adventure awaits you.
East Oregonians are proud of their heritage - Chief Joseph, Lewis and Clark, Oregon Trail pioneers, and those who followed to settle the land. Their traditions and celebrations are rooted in the earth, the water, the wildlife, and the climate.
