Pacific Northwest Drivers’ Encore Tour – May 20-28th, 2023
May 20 - May 28
Following our 2022 Pacific Northwest tour, some of us were so smitten by Oregon’s backroads, we created this driver focused journey to return to some of the best roads from that trip and more. With the help of our Oregon partner, Ralph Harding, it is designed for the Ultimate Driving Experience catering to those who really enjoy challenging roads with interesting scenery.
However – beware – it is all about driving and will not be for the faint of heart! There will be a lot of great miles and our intent is to cover them all with minimalistic overnight stops punctuated with the casual bite of food and lots of great car talk! We will be concentrating this into a one-week tour (Saturday to the next Sunday) that will fit into anyone’s schedule and pocketbook. We have also chosen a late May timeframe to avoid any heavy vacation traffic, although locals tell us these are such remote roads, they would not see too much traffic even during peak season.
Take your own car, join us wherever you want, drive on your own or convoy style, it’s all up to you. However, some of these roads are less travelled will be best enjoyed following our seasoned organizer who can show you some of the niftier ones. We will provide a hotel list where the organizers will be staying along with suggested routes. Estimated budget will be between $2,000 and $2,500 Canadian depending on hotel choices and exchange rate (tire wear and brake pad wear not included 😉).
This map shows the overall route we will be taking from Calgary and return. The inset box shows Day 4 where we drive some of the canyon carvers around Baker City. The itinerary is in the February newsletter. Detailed route maps for each day will follow.
