Oregon Coastline

Known as the "Beaver State", Oregon is a dramatic land of refuge. Right after it became part of the United Sates of America in 1859, it was a refuge from slavery disputes by declaring itself as a "whites only" state. Today, it serves as a place of refuge for dreamers and outdoor enthusiasts looking for a place where life's simple pleasures can be enjoyed at its fullest.

From its rugged coastlines to volcanic mountains, crystal-clear lakes, rivers and forests that stretch as far as the eye can see, Oregon offers many amazing outdoor opportunities.
