Explore Oregon’s rocky northern coastline on this scenic full-day trip from Portland. Travel the picturesque US Hwy 101 through quaint beach towns, stopping in Cannon Beach, Ecola State Park, and Oswald West State Park. Spend a luxurious day enjoying panoramic coastal views, geological wonders, and wind-swept beaches.
Your luxury mini-coach departs bright and early from downtown Portland. Your first stop is at Ecola State Park, where you can take in stunning views of the Oregon coastline. Next up is Cannon Beach. Upon arrival, head to Haystack rock, an enormous monolith that earned fame in the film The Goonies. Walk all the way to Haystack’s base (if the tide is out), explore tide pools and glimpse scurrying sea creatures. Enjoy lunch (own expense) in the town of Cannon Beach at your preferred local eatery. After lunch, reboard your mini-coach for a southbound tour along the famous coastal US Highway 101. Along the way, explore the unique beauty of the Oregon coast and stop at beautiful beaches along the way. Stop at breathtaking scenic overlooks, admire the Pacific Ocean as it crashes along the cliffs, and visit other small towns that dot the coastline. Upon arriving at the Neahkahnie Overlook, keep a look out for gray whales while gazing out into Tillamook Bay. Afterward, one of your last stops is at Oswald West State Park. Your tour concludes back at the starting point, in downtown Portland.
Aaron took us on a great trip to the Oregon coast, packed in loads of knowledge and history on the way, and then gave us photo opportunities galore as we looked down onto Cannon beach, then walked on it, out to Haystack Rock before seeing other coves and bays down the coast. We had time for a relaxing lunch and then also an afternoon walk through ancient rainforest to the sea. Great day out!
Jesse was a fabulous tour guide and made the trip. Treated us and made us feel like long time friends from the time we met him. Extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend the day with. Thank you for everything Jesse. Sites were beautiful and what an awesome area to see.
I highly recommend Viator tours. This is one of many I have taken and never been disappointed. This tour had everything - comfortable van, great driver/guide, and fantastic views! The Oregon coast is not to be missed.
Many thanks to Clinton and Wildwood Adventures for a wonderful tour of the northern beaches and coastal towns near Portland, including a perfect hike through an old growth forest leading to Short Sands beach. Clinton was very knowledgeable and shared his extensive knowledge of the Pacific Northwest’s history, agriculture, industry, forestry and culture. Highly recommend this daylong tour!
We throughly enjoyed the Oregon Coast tour. The bus was clean and our guide Andy was one of the best guides we ever had. The sights are beautiful with great stops at Ecola State Park, Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, etc. Definitely a tour you don't want to miss!
Our tour guide was awesome. He was pleasant, personable, and made sure we were comfortable.
I would take this tour again if we could have Aaron for our guide. He knew the area very well and could point out many things along the way that we would have missed if we were driving ourselves.
