Agritope is located in Portland, Oregon along the Willamette and Columbia
Rivers in a extraordinary location with an evergreen backdrop rarely found
in urban settings. In any direction you take from Portland you can enjoy
exciting outdoor activities in less than a 2-hour drive: snow skiing in the
Cascades, windsurfing in the Columbia River Gorge, white water rafting or
escaping to the Pacific Ocean Coast for some rest and relaxation. You don't
have to leave Portland, however, to have a great time. Portland offers over
200 parks (home to the world's largest city-owned forested park), music and
art festivals, symphony, opera, theater, dance, museums and galleries,
delicious restaurants, cozy cafes, lively microbreweries, and an abundance
