- Discover the epic beauty of the Oregon coastline
- See the spectacular Astoria Column
We’re thrilled to include this enchanting Oregon gift experience in the Tinggly catalogue - this is one of the best days out from Portland that you could hope to find - travel by comfortable minibus along stretches of the state’s most spectacularly beautiful coastline to enjoy dramatic vistas of Cannon Beach, Tillamook Rock Lighthouse and the wild Pacific Ocean. You’ll see Haystack Rock, a marine wildlife sanctuary that teems with avian and aquatic life, from crabs and starfish to puffins and terns. The Astoria Column, a one-of-a-kind 38m tall structure, overlooks the ocean and is decorated with murals depicting significant events from Oregon history. Depending on the day and the available time you may be able to climb up to the observation point for some truly sensational views.
The guided tour moves south to Cannon Beach, a charming and quaint beachside town with a vibrant artistic community where you can purchase a spot of lunch (the seafood here is exceptional!). Then, you’ll have the chance to explore the stunning beauty and distinctive ecology of this region - take a stroll through an old-growth forest, and admire panoramas of Manzanita and the Nehalem River. The beauty of the Pacific Northwest landscape is enough to take anyone’s breath away, and ensures that this is one of the must-do Portland day excursions.
