Oregon is a West coast destination that takes its nature-based wellness seriously, so during this time when outdoor activity has been curbed for the world’s health and safety, Travel Oregon is sharing its favourite Moments of Zen, and other virtual tours, in hopes of offering some mindfulness.

Twenty minute videos offering a break from working at home, or the world as a whole, take viewers to all seven regions around the state, including:

  • A musical performance at The Painted Hills in Eastern Oregon
  • Painting Autumn colours en plein air at Lithia Park in Southern Oregon
  • Watching waves lap the shore in Samuel H. Boardman State Park on the Oregon Coast
  • Fly fishing on the Deschutes River in Central Oregon
  • Chasing waterfalls at Salt Creek Falls in the Willamette Valley
  • Touring the Portland Japanese Garden
  • Relaxing fireside overlooking Mt. Hood and Mt. Hood Ski Bowl

Viewers can also virtually explore some of Oregon’s iconic sites in 360-degree video, including:

  • Columbia River Gorge – the largest designated National Scenic Area in the U.S.
  • Smith Rock State Park – the birthplace of U.S. sport climbing
  • Southern Oregon Coast – part of the publicly owned People’s Coast (584 km long)
  • Hellgate Canyon – the deepest river-carved gorge in the U.S.
  • Portland Timbers – Oregon’s Major League Soccer (MLS) team
  • Anthony Lakes – 15 alpine lakes in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon
  • Oregon Coast Aquarium – a leading centre for marine education and top attraction in Newport
  • Archery Summit Winery – one of Oregon’s 725 wineries, the most wineries per capita in the U.S.
  • Mt. Bachelor – offering one of the longest ski seasons in America
  • Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood – the only ski area in North America open year-round

And if this doesn’t occupy the mind, and time, of armchair travellers:

  • Oregon State Parks’ Whale Watching Centre in Depoe Bay is livestreaming whale watching
  • Skiers and snowboarders who are missing the mountains can virtually hit the slopes from Spring skiing on Mt. Hood to exploring the backcountry in the Wallowas
  • Cyclists can virtually ride Oregon’s Scenic Byways through wine country from the Tualatin Valley to the Willamette Valley, and beyond
  • And Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals offers a virtual tour for geology buffs
