Northwest Now

Pacific Northwest Tour – Oregon and Washington Outdoor Adventure Tours

Discover the landscapes and people of Oregon and Washington

Northwest Now, our Pacific Northwest tour, immerses you in the flavors, stories, art, and landscapes of northwestern places, allowing you to discover for yourself what gives this region its refreshing style and unique vibration. Traveling in a small group through the states of Oregon and Washington, we visit traditional destinations along with hidden treasures off the beaten path.

Our outdoor adventure tour will bring you to the region’s most beautiful areas including the Columbia River Highway, Cascade Range volcanoes, quiet lakes, the Pacific Coast and the Olympic Peninsula. There will be endless opportunities for taking photographs, bird watching, hiking, and reflecting. Enjoy the pleasures of being on the road and in beautiful natural surroundings with like-minded travelers.

To the right, Mt Hood stands 11,249 ft.(3,429m) tall and belongs to the volcanoes of the Pacific Ring of Fire. A favorite among skiers and climbers, this mountain enjoys the longest ski season in North America.
