Willamette Valley

Oregon’s prime wine country, the Willamette Valley (in Silver Falls State Park) is home to nearly 600 vineyards – two-thirds of Oregon’s total – wineries, orchards and farms. Stretching for 150 miles from Portland to just south of Eugene, the valley which¬† is surrounded by mountains on three sides and is a world-famous wine region for good reason; its prized pinot noir-growing climate makes it one of the top pinot-producing areas in the world.

There are 10 spectacular waterfalls to see along a patchwork of trails you can choose to suit your comfort, or see them all along the famous 7.2-mile Trail of Ten Falls or for a trail of a different kind, visit Oregon’s capital city, Salem, and enjoy the Salem Ale and Cider Trail.

The first official Scenic Bikeway in the United States was the 134-mileWillamette Scenic Bikeway which although moderately difficult to complete, there are lots of shorter stretches that make for great day trips. There are also plenty of coffee shops, wineries and brewpubs in friendly towns along the way.

 

Everything went to plan. The car was excellent, we had no problems with the ferry bookings or the hotel reservations and the information we received was all accurate. We appreciated the very convenient seats that were reserved for us on the flights. Overall, an excellent holiday experience, you did an excellent job in putting it all together for us and in responding to my many queries
