2021 NW Passage WAITLIST
June 16 - June 20
The ORPCA Northwest Passage is “On The Road Again” with the 2021 tour! We will be featuring new and exciting roads with rolling hills, mountains, and switchbacks, as well as familiar destinations from past tours that we all have come to enjoy. This year’s tour explores the roads of the high plains of central and eastern Oregon, passing through towns named Wasco, Condon, Heppner, Sumpter, Baker City and John Day. From beautiful rivers and mountains, to undulating hills, this year’s Northwest Passage Tour will be a great drive as well as a feast for the eyes. To add more fun to this year’s tour, we will be offering an optional Sunday night stay at Riverhouse on the Deschutes.
Porsche of Beaverton will host a pre-tour social event on Wednesday night in their fabulous 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 2021 Northwest Passage begins on Thursday afternoon when participants meet where the Cascade Mountains intersect with the Columbia River. The Northwest Passage Team will host a welcome reception on Thursday 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.
Friday morning, our route follows the Columbia River and then up on the central Oregon high plateau as we wind our way east through Condon, Heppner and Sumpter, enjoying some spectacular scenery and fun Porsche roads. Friday afternoon we continue east to Baker City where a full street will be blocked off so tour participants can park and display their cars.
Friday evening, the Northwest Passage Team will host a reception with wine and beer at the historic and majestic Geiser Grand Hotel.
Saturday morning, we zig zag our way towards John Day. After lunch, we head west, following great driving roads with big sweeping curves and long straight stretches filled with beautiful scenery, before arriving at our destination, Riverhouse on the Deschutes in Bend.
The Northwest Passage Team will once again host its locally famous, always popular, keg and car 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 beer keg and snacks will be provided. Saturday evening, we will enjoy a delicious hosted dinner together at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes.
Sunday morning, we enjoy a lovely hosted brunch. For those who don’t have to rush back home, we have planned an optional Sunday night stay at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes where you can sit back and enjoy the amenities of the resort, watch the Deschutes river flow by or explore the local roads.
