Why you'll love this trip
  • Explore Redwoods National Park – home to some of the tallest and most ancient trees in the world – and discover gorgeous parklands, oak woodlands, condors and the Avenue of Giants drive.
  • Visit a fellow B Corp and have a go at shucking your own Tomales Bay oysters – then enjoy a scenic picnic lunch where you can eat the fruits (oysters) of your labour.
  • Walk along the rim of Crater Lake National Park – this natural wonder was formed 7700 years ago from the collapse of a mountain peak and is now the deepest lake in the USA fed by rain and snow.
  • Head to the USA’s best wine region for Pinot Noir – Willamette Valley – and enjoy a wine tasting at a local winery in the valley, with gorgeous views of sprawling vineyards, hills and forest.
  • Wander around natural areas that will inspire awe – like the cascades of Multnomah Falls near Portland and the peaceful Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park.
