Explore some of America’s most breathtaking terrain – the rugged, remote Cascade Mountains range. Our adventures begin and end with Oregon’s wilderness, and in the middle you’ll find solitude. Whether you’re hiking, backpacking, whitewater paddling, or mountaineering – you’ll travel along alpine meadows, cold-mountain streams, cascading waterfalls, and remote mountain passes.

NCOAE’s Pacific Northwest courses are exceptional with their unique combination of adventure and skill development.  You’ll master your outdoor technical skills, critical thinking and decision making as you explore rocky ridges and rushing rivers through the Pacific Northwest’s remote outdoor classroom.
