About Willamette Valley
Head south through the Willamette Valley and things soon turn from “weird” to “wine”. With over 700 wineries calling the region home, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to silky-smooth pinot noir that’s made a name for itself as some of the world’s best, as well farm-to-fork restaurants making the most of the local produce. Balance the food and drink with visits to Salem and Eugene, or head to the hills to explore the surrounding forests. Mount Pisgah, with its vast arboretum, is the perfect place to immerse yourself in nature, particularly if you visit during wildflower season. Otherwise, the trails running parallel to the Willamette and McKenzie rivers can be tackled on two feet or two wheels and cater for hikers, trail runners and cyclists, whatever their level of experience.
