You like a vacation that's equal parts exciting and relaxing. That's cool, we get it. You do you, we'll show you how.

Vino:

Hood Territory have 18 wineries located within the Willamette Valley which has been recognized as the 2016 Wine Region of the Year, but we've made it as easy as possible to experience our wineries with the Mt. Hood Territory Wine Trail

Like your wines in a country setting? Check out Whiskey Hill Winery at Postlewait Vineyards. Do you like your wine paired with a delicious brick oven pizza? Then make a stop at Christopher Bridge Cellars. For some lesser-known varietals, try King's Raven Winery or Wooden Shoe Vineyard. That barely scratches the surface of wineries you can tour; you can spend a week touring and tasting here. 

Whoosh:

Guess what, you're not in Mt. Hood Territory, as we boast the longest ski season in North America! Head up to Timberline Lodge & Ski Area to take advantage of the almost year-round whooshing that Palmer Glacier has to offer. 

During the winter months you also have access to Mt. Hood Skibowl, which is North America's largest night skiing area. Who needs boundaries like seasons or daylight, you can hit the slopes almost any time you want here in Mt. Hood Territory. 

Tuber:

You'll immediately see why this spot is one of the most photographed locations in all of Mt. Hood Territory, if not Oregon. Head over to Milo McIver State Park and float down the Clackamas River to Barton Park. Both parks also offer some great recreation opportunities. The float takes about 3-4 hours and is a fun trip down a gorgeous river. You can encounter some small rapids on this trip, so be prepared for a little tube adventure on your ride.

Of course you don't have to be relegated to a tube. If you want to try something a bit more unique, maybe sign up for a stand up paddleboard (SUP) yoga class with eNRG Kayaking. You'll be guided through some simple poses on your paddleboard just offshore from scenic Willamette Park in West Linn.
