Two Identical Tours in 2022!

June 21 - June 26

September 20 - September 25

The ORPCA Northwest Passage Team has put together two fabulous driving tours, and is offering it twice in 2022, with fun roads, beautiful scenery, delicious food, great accommodations and an opportunity to renew old friendships and make new ones. From mountains to forests to the Pacific Ocean, this year’s Northwest Passage route takes us through some of the most scenic and best driving roads in the northwest. This year’s tour will visit covered bridges as we wind our way through the Willamette Valley, redwood forests and drives down the Pacific Coast Highway.

Porsche of Beaverton will host a pre-tour social event on Tuesday night in their beautiful showroom.  An event not to miss, we will be treated to a tasty selection of hors d’ oeuvres, wine and beer, amidst beautiful Porsches as we say hello to old friends and greet new tour participants.

The 2022 Northwest Passage begins on Wednesday afternoon when participants meet at The Oregon Garden Resort. Come early and explore the fabulous gardens.  The Northwest Passage Team will host a welcome reception on Wednesday evening with hors d’oeuvers, wine and beer to welcome participants and to provide a time for us to meet and socialize with one another.

Thursday morning, our route zig zags its way south through the Willamette Valley, ferreting out covered bridges and then goes to the coast. Thursday afternoon we head down the coast to Bandon where we overnight. Thursday evening, the Northwest Passage Team will host a delicious dinner at the famous Lord Bennett’s Restaurant.

Friday morning, our route takes us south into California and then up the Redwood Highway, stopping for lunch at the Patrick Creek Lodge that is along the Redwood Highway. After lunch we continue north on forested highways to our overnight lodging in Roseburg.

Saturday morning we will depart Roseburg and enjoy our Porsches on twisty highways that meander through forests, along rivers, and through covered bridges to our lunch stop at The King Estate winery.

After lunch we will drive north through a covered bridge via scenic roads past farmland, wineries and along riverways to our overnight lodging at the Salishan (June) or the Hallmark Resort (September)

The Northwest Passage Team will once again host its popular Beer wash following our Saturday drive. This event gives everybody a chance to wash the road grime off their cars, socialize and just have fun. A hosted banquet on Saturday night at the Chinook Casino (June) and the Hallmark in Newport (Sept). Sunday morning, we enjoy a lovely hosted brunch.

This year each 2022 NW Passage tour is a five-day event.  The cost per car will be announced in early December ’21. Because of the size of the dining and lodging venues, we are limiting the number of cars on this year’s NW Passage to 40 cars on each tour.  The Northwest Passage typically fills up very fast, so signing up early is recommended.
