Southern Oregon ADVENTURE
This past year, the Bear Hotel underwent a spectacular transformation. This amazing new experience featured a complete redesign, transitioning from Christmas on Mars to a Southern Oregon Adventureland, complete with towering redwoods, Crater Lake, dense forests, flowing rivers, Southern Oregon Coast, and vineyards … all designed by local artists. You can view this amazing Southern Oregon Adventure during Rogue Winterfest.
Inside the Bear Hotel an adventure awaited, beginning with a vista overlooking Crater Lake. Pathways led visitors through majestic redwoods and canyons with waterfalls and wildlife critters created by local artists. A covered bridge opened yet another door to vineyards with rolling hills that made their way to the Oregon coast. And to top it all off … everything was dusted with a layer of sparkling snow and listen closely to the sounds of nature.
