Portland’s name was decided over a coin toss in 1845, and this same cheery and carefree attitude can be found from the city’s buzzing food markets and peaceful parks, right out to the adventures to be found across the wider region.
If you fancy experiencing Portland, Oregon for yourself, Audley Travel has the perfect prize just for you: the tailor-made travel specialist is offering one lucky reader the chance to win a trip for two.
One of the best ways to explore is to hop on two wheels and take to the bicycle lanes of Portland, with a guide leading the way. You’ll travel along the waterfront, through the hip Pearl District and then downtown into the University District, passing art galleries, food carts and boutique shops, all while getting your bearings and learning about the city’s history.
It’s then time to uncover the best foodie hotspots. Enter Central Eastside to find the local artisan food and drink businesses that have paved the way to Portland’s growing gastronomic reputation and sample tasty treats along the way.
A kayak tour from Oregon city doesn’t just offer a fun and gentler pace of travel. As you paddle one mile upstream, it can prove a great way to spot waterfowl (such as bitterns, herons and egrets) and to learn more about the history of the region, especially the famous Willamette Falls.
On land, the Tualatin Valley sits in the north-western corner of the Willamette Valley. These hills are well-known for their abundance of vineyards, but whether you’re a wine aficionado or amateur, an excursion here will reward you with vivacious vintages to try and a fun day out.
When it comes to booking your holidays, Audley Travel and its holiday specialists won’t just ask you where you want to go, they’ll ask how you want to feel. With
a team made up of experts who have travelled many times or lived in the destinations the company features, they can show you the main highlights in a different light and introduce you to experiences that ordinarily you might miss. Drawing on their passion and knowledge they can tailor a trip just for you.
In this way, and should the competition winner so wish, Audley Travel can arrange extra tours and excursions (at an additional cost) and extend the trip to accommodate this, subject to availability of return economy flights.
