10 Outdoor Activities to Get You Moving in Oregon

Oregon has some of the best outdoor activities in the USA. It’s a state full of beautiful beaches, stunning mountains, and the clearest waters in the country. If you want to get moving in Oregon, here are some awesome activities to get you started.

10. Go Fly a Kite

If you brought a swimsuit to the Oregon Coast, don’t worry. Someone will loan you a sweater.

When the wind gets going, so should you. Grab a kite and head down to one of the awesome beaches Oregon has to offer.

9. Take the Kayak Out

There are all kinds of things to do here but you don’t have to do any of them.

There are plenty beautiful lakes and rivers, or hop in a sea kayak and test the waters on the Pacific.

8. Try Your Hand at Cross-Country Skiing


It’s one of the best full-body workouts you can do.

7. Go Camping for the Weekend

Hi folks! Joe Whittle (@joewhittlephotography) here! I’m a freelance photographer and backcountry ranger in the Wallowa Mountains and Hells Canyon region of Eastern Oregon. I’ll be taking over Travel Oregon’s Instagram Monday and Tuesday of this week to share some of my favorite outdoor adventures in this incredible part of the world. After that we’ll be moving over to the Eastern Oregon Visitor Association’s feed (@easternoregon) for the rest of the week, so I hope you’ll follow along as I continue my personal tour of the sort of adventures Oregon’s largest wilderness area and North America’s deepest canyon have to offer. Here’s a photo from an annual backpacking trip I take with my daughter to the headwaters of the Imnaha River, which flows from the heart of the Wallowas and down into the mighty Snake River at the bottom of Hells Canyon. This area can be accessed for hiking and backpacking from the Indian Crossing trailhead and campground, found off the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway and Forest Service Rd. 39, which travels from Halfway, OR, in Baker County, to Joseph, OR, in Wallowa County. It is a seasonal road open summer through fall. #traveloregon #easternoregon #wallowacounty #bakercounty #eaglecapwilderness #stargazing

You’ll be able to knock off several items on this list in one weekend, pack your tent and head into the Oregon wilderness.

6. Cycle the Coastline


The grade is challenging but so worth the trip.

5. Go Trail Running with Fido


It’s hard to say who will have more fun.

4. Test the Slopes at Mt. Bachelor


It’s the top rated mountain in Oregon, and it’s a blast.

3. Take a Leap of Faith at Crater Lake


Just don’t look down.

2. Try SUP


Stand Up Paddleboarding, that is. It’s a good workout and a great way to tour the state, one paddle at a time.
