Help with a 10-day Washington / Oregon itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm new to these forums, and am posting because everyone seems so helpful and I'm so stuck! My husband and I are planning a 10-day trip in mid-August to Washington and Oregon around a business trip of his to Portland (flying in and out of Portland). I've come up with endless itineraries, but I can't seem to put one together which includes everything we want to do without being completely unrealistic and exhausting!

We like short walks (say 2hrs max), wineries and good food, varied scenery and wildlife. Not so keen on towns and cities (we live in London and want to get away from it all!), and we don't want to drive for more than three hours a day if possible.

I've been trying to squeeze in the Willamette Valley, Columbia River Valley, Mt Hood, somewhere on the Oregon Coast like Cannon Beach, some of Olympic NP, Mt Rainier, and Mt St Helens, but I can't make it all fit! I've also been thinking about the North Cascades. I want to get the best of both mountains and coast, but despite lots of looking, I can't work out which bits are much the same as each other and which are different enough to be worth extra time.

Any feedback much appreciated on how to put an itinerary together. Thanks in advance :)
