Day 1:

Upon departure from Eugene, we will drive over the historic Goodpasture Covered Bridge and you will have the opportunity to photograph it! This quintessential covered bridge is Oregon’s most frequently photographed covered bridge – and it’s easy to see why. Excellent vantage points along Hwy 126 showcase the bridge’s elegant 165 foot (50 m) span across the scenic McKenzie River. The bridge itself is well crafted with attention to architectural details and classic style.  It is also the second longest covered bridge in Oregon (the first is Office Bridge in Westfir).

Our next stop of the day will be at Sahalie Falls.  Sahalie (or “Heaven” in the Chinook language) is a mass of foaming white water plunging 100 feet (30 m) over a natural lava dam.  Take an easy walk through forests of 6-foot-thick Douglas fir and droopy-limbed red cedar to see this beautiful waterfall. These famous falls can be spotted in Disney’s movie Homeward Bound.

Next, we will drive to the town of Sisters, where you will have free time to explore the quaint downtown and have lunch at one of the amazing restaurants.  Sisters is a charming town with an 1880’s western theme and the shops in this town are anything but old-fashioned. Well-known artists work graces downtown Sisters in a variety of galleries and shops. Find your treasure at one of the antique shops or the perfect gift at one of the many specialty stores.

Upon our arrival in Bend we will visit the High Desert Museum.  This unique museum reveals the natural world and cultural history of the West’s High Desert region through artful exhibits, alluring animals, engaging programs and meaningful history.  Discover why they’re rated the #1 Thing to Do in Bend by TripAdvisor!

Day 2:

Upon arrival at Crater Lake we will spend the day visiting all the incredible vistas, visitor centers, and overlooks.   Crater Lake has inspired people for thousands of years with some of the 1st Native Americans who discovered its beauty and mystique. No place else on earth combines a deep, pure lake, so blue in color; steep surrounding cliffs almost two thousand feet high; two unique picturesque islands; and a violent volcanic past. It is a place of immeasurable beauty and the Nation’s deepest lake over 1,900 feet deep.

Our day will end in the wonderful town of Ashland Oregon.  Tonight you will have the option of enjoying a play at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Each season celebrates OSF’s ongoing commitment to the work of Shakespeare, imaginative adaptations of beloved classics and illuminating new plays.

Day 3:

Today we will leave Ashland and make our way back to Eugene. This morning we will stop at a local creamery who’s Blue Cheese recently won “Best in the World” and The World Cheese Awards, held in Bergamo, Italy.  While here you will learn how they make their cheese and be able to sample and buy some if you want.  Make sure not to leave without trying their blue cheese and honey grilled sandwich!

We will also stop at a wildlife safari where you will be able to have an up close interaction with amazing animals and as we drive through the safari get up close to Ostrich, Watusi cattle, Lions and Zebra. We will also venture through the homes of hippos and the land of the scimitar horned oryx. Your Safari journey will take you through Southern Africa where the Rhino and Giraffe rule. Carry on to interpretive wetlands, cleaning the local waters in reaffirmation of our commitment to the soil before venturing into the land of bears, bison and elk within the sprawling canyon forests of North America. We will end our journey here with a trip through a carnivore loop featuring Wildlife Safari’s top cheetah breeding grounds and ferocious Sumatran Tigers.

Upon arrival in Eugene we will drop you either at your hotel (hotel reservation not included tonight) or at the Eugene Airport so that you can fly home.
