Oregon-Washington in September

Jump to last reply

I am planning to visit Oregon and Washington from Aug last week to Sept 1st week.
Here is my itinerary, I am listing down all places planning to visit, and I spoke to guided tour companies to book the all day hike tour.

Fly to Portland and reaching early morning

1st day. Drive half way to Crater Lake around 140 miles for 2hrs then take rest, start again in the morning to Crater Lake 100 miles then spend couple of hours.

2nd 3rd day. From crater lake start driving to Mt. Hood (240 miles) , stay overnight at Mt. Hood and next day morning take guided hike tour, if possible visit adventure park on the same or next day, (Columbus gorge is also in my mind for next day but not yet decided)

3rd day. start driving to Mt Rainier and planning to book the hotel near paradise, but I don't know I will get it or not, if not I will stay near the park on the route of guide tour shuttle, planning to take full day tour from 1pm to 10pm and come back to the hotel

4th day. Cover Seattle local attractions and start driving to north cascades 150 miles, planning to book overnight base camp tour.

5th day. North cascades, not decided what to do (please advice)

6th day planning to visit Olympic national park (please advise)

I am not sure all above is possible or not, please post your opinion as well as suggestions/experiences in Oregon/Washington

I am still thinking whether to cover Crater Lake or not, I could save one day time if I avoid driving 250 miles up/down from Portland to Crater Lake. I want to relax and explore places instead of spending time in driving.
