Discovering the spellbinding beauty of nature

Oregon’s diverse natural wonders are beyond the renowned Mount Hood, Crater Lake, and Silver State Falls Park. The state offers a vast array of landscapes waiting to be discovered! Whether you’ve already visited the iconic attractions or are seeking off-the-beaten-path adventures, here are a few breathtaking wonders you should definitely visit!

1. Painted Hills:

Located in the Wheeler County, they are a part of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. What makes the Painted Hills truly captivating are the vibrant layers of colourful clay soil that have been exposed through erosion.

2. Thor’s well:

Let yourself be enchanted by the spellbinding spectacle, especially during high tide when the water rushes and swirls, in this collapsed sea cave that creates a profound sinkhole. Nonetheless, exercise caution as the area may pose risks during severe weather or high tide occurrences.

3. Hells Canyon:

Witness the grandeur of North America’s deepest river gorge, enveloping a sprawling and secluded area marked by striking shifts in elevation, landscape, climate, and flora. Carved by the mighty Snake River, this gorge offers awe-inspiring vistas and natural wonders to behold.

4. Bandon:

Embark on a journey to the charmingly dubbed “Cranberry Capital of Oregon” and discover the origins of its unique moniker. Situated just over 4 hours south of Portland along Oregon’s scenic South Coast, Bandon offers expansive sandy shores, a thriving arts community, iconic sea stacks that grace its coastline, birdwatching haven, and enchanting hiking routes.
