This day trip is a customized tour along a section of rugged coastline along Oregon's northern coast. There will be one or two town stops, and multiple stops at headlands and beaches. After your pickup in Portland, we'll discuss the interests of people in the group, and your guide will customize the itinerary to those interests. Regardless of interests, the trip will include driving the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway with a short hike through oldgrowth Sitka spruce forest, beach time, tide pools, sea stacks, viewpoint stops, and a lunch stop in a charming coastal town. If group interest allows, stops with a more technological history focus may be made, such as the Tillamook Air Museum, Tillamook Cheese Factory, or Camp 18. You'll be back in Portland early enough for dinner.
- Please be prepared for whatever the weather may be when your tour runs
(e.g. rain gear, sunglasses, hat, extra layers, sunscreen).
- Wear shoes that you don't mind getting sandy and wet.
