History

More than the Oregon Trail.

We’ve all heard of the Oregon Trail, but did you know that long before the settlers started arriving in the 1850s, indigenous peoples including Native American tribes lived within Oregon’s borders for at least 10,000 years? Or that ghost towns still speckle the state and lighthouses stand watch over our bays?

Best Oregon Tours' knowledgeable guides prospect into Oregon’s rich cultural heritage while balancing the present.

Nature

From sandy beaches and rocky cliffs to welcoming vineyards and meandering rivers.

Oregon is lucky enough to be home to some of the most diverse and flourishing ecosystems in the United States. With an ocean nestled on its shoulder, veined in cascading streams, waterfalls, and meandering rivers, Oregon boasts 11 national forests, 21 wildlife refuges, and 361 state parks.

 

Some say you couldn’t see them all in one lifetime…but we can sure try.
