Oregon introduces the rugged Cascade Mountains to the lapping shores of the Pacific Ocean. The deep green pine trees contrasted against soft seafoam and tide pools draw mountain and ocean adventurers alike. As the most geographically diverse state, Oregon offers unparalleled outdoor adventure with volcanic mountains for hiking, biking, skiing, and backpacking, and bodies of fresh and saltwater for kayaking, rafting, windsurfing, and snorkeling.

Beyond the photogenic scenery and adventure opportunities, Oregon bears the fascinating history of the American West. The mountainous regions and oceanside views are etched with the stories of Indigenous nations and European traders and explorers.

Crater Lake is the only national park in Oregon, but its origin story, rooted in Indigenous legend, manifests Oregon’s intertwined history and geographic beauty. Oregon’s culture and breathtaking views make it an incomparable and unmissable destination.
