SEPTEMBER 4-14, 2018

Oregon Coast

Highway 101 follows mostly along the shore or on along the clifftops at the Pacific Ocean's edge. There is ample opportunity to take in the beaches, ocean, wildlife and fresh seafood.

Crater Lake

This most blue and beautiful lake is on many people's bucket list... and rightly so. It is the second deapest lake on the continent and affords spectacular scenery.

Columbia Gorge

The roads less traveled are usually the best for motorcycling and we find many such roads on this tour.



Northwest Volcanoes & Coast Tour
September 4-14, 2018
Itinerary & Pricing
We will start and end in Portland, Oregon then explore the best roads in Oregon and Northern California. First we explore the seaside along the Pacific Ocean negotiating most of the Oregon coastline and on into Northern California. The Lost Coast gives adventuresome souls a chance to go somewhere few people explore. The mighty Redwoods - the tallest trees in the world - shadow the road as we travel along the Avenue of the Giants. After traversing Northern California on one of the best motorcycle roads in the state, we start exploring the volcanic history of this region heading into the interior and the mountains. Who knew how much volcanoes shaped this land? Near the end of the tour we venture into the beatiful Columbia River Gorge. It's known for Lewis & Clark, hydroelectricity, wine and wind surfing. Mt. St. Helens caps our exploration of volcanic sites and it's one not to be missed. It erupted catastrophically in 1980 leaving a huge scare and a mountain now 1,314' shorter in elevation.
Columbia Gorge from Vista House. The prominent rock in the center near the river is Beacon Rock, named by Lewis and Clark during their expedition. They traveled down the Columbia River to arrive at their final destination on the Pacific Ocean.
