Introducing Central Oregon & the Oregon Cascades

Love mountain tops? Well, that's what Central Oregon and its Cascades are all about. You can practically skip your way from peak to snowy peak here, from Mt Hood, to Jefferson, to Bachelor, to Three-Fingered Jack and the lovely Sisters volcanoes. As you can imagine, there's plenty of awesome skiing and mountaineering, along with stellar hiking and camping. And it's not just mountain lovers who come here – world-class biking, golfing, rafting, kayaking, fishing and rock climbing are also on offer. Did we mention there's nearly 300 days of sunshine every year?

As much as the outdoors may beckon, the lively city of Bend provides plenty of good food and accommodations. Or head nearby to the sweet little town of Sisters for a more quaint and personal atmosphere. Add a must-stop visit to Mt Hood's historic Timberline Lodge, or a getaway break in the region's many peaceful lakeside resorts, and you'll find that Central Oregon's many attractions are hard to beat.
