"Oregon in a " Winter Tour
Take the legendary Oregon in a Nutshell tour during the winter season for a truly unforgettable experience! See breathtaking Gorge and mountain scenery and ride the Mt. Hood Railway through the snow covered Hood River Valley.
The Oregon in a Nutshell winter tour can be taken just as you would our summer excursions. You can start your tour in Portland or another location. You can choose our standard itineraries or customize your own trip to include overnight stays and activities before, after or along the route!
On the tour you will travel through some of Oregon's most beautiful scenery. You will experience the Magic Mile chairlift ride* to the top of the world and the scenic Mt. Hood Railway. Traveling on the railway lines during winter is a special and memorable experience. You can sit back and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the white, wild and wonderful winter landscape.
Traveling in the winter season is highly recommended, since there are less people and more room for travelers to enjoy the view. You can complete our tours in one day, but we highly recommend that you take your time by adding overnight stays and taking our multi-day options!
By taking your time, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and participate in several exciting winter activities. What about a winter safari, some snowshoe hiking, snowmobiling or even sleigh rides in Government Camp?
*One last tip: Dress warmly and bundle up - it can get very cold in Oregon!
