Dust off the boom box and plug in the lava lamp: Today’s Escape makes one heck of a mixtape.
Rolling Stone couldn't have done a better job picking Oregon's Greatest Hits for this seven-day excursion with Bonvoy Adventure Travel - featuring hiking, climbing, rafting, mountain biking, and wine tasting - all for $950.
After meeting your guides at Portland International Airport, you'll hit the ground running with your first night camping on Oregon's own Stairway to Heaven, the 11,000-foot dormant volcano, Mount Hood. In the morning, you'll Walk the Line on the "Hogsback" route with the expert instruction of your experienced guides to summit America's most-climbed glaciated peak.
Afterward, rest your legs and indulge in some liquid courage for the next part of your adventure with a wine tour of the Willamette Valley. With several winery visits, a private tour, and a night in a cozy bed and breakfast, you'll emerge from your Purple Haze ready to tackle the forests and alpine meadows of central Oregon by mountain bike.
On day five, you'll get your Satisfaction in summiting the walls of Smith Rock, the birthplace of modern sport climbing, on your choice of more than 1,000 routes. And finally, it's on to the rapids of the lower Deschutes, where you'll find your River Deep, Mountain High on the Class III whitewater runs.
With all of the transportation, food, activities, gear, and expertise provided, you're free to sit back, relax, and experience A Day in the Life of a seasoned adventurer. And with double the adrenaline for your dollar, who says You Can't Always Get What You Want?
