Pacific North West

Pacific North West

In the top northwest corner of mainland America, just below Canada, the Pacific North West is made up of the two states of Washington and Oregon and covers around 300,000 square kilometers. This is the only place in the world where you are never far from a volcano, a winery, a good coffee, or a 4 by 4 – not to mention tropical rain, desert sun, and the deep blue Pacific Ocean.

Its diverse and scenic landscapes provide a veritable playground for outdoor enthusiasts, while its cities are cultured and cutting edge with high standards of living. Must do adventurous activities when visiting this region are sand boarding, kite surfing, climbing Mount St. Helens, visiting a Native American Indian reservation, and joining the cowboys for the Pendleton Round-Up.
