It was already overcast when we arrived in Florence in the afternoon. Florence is the northern gateway to the Oregon Dunes National Reserve area with 47 miles of coastal dune and a favorite spot for off-road -vehicle rides. Knowing rain forecasted to arrive the following day (surprise this is Oregon!) we immediately signed up for a 10-mile dune buggy ride at Sandland Adventures. Wow! We rode on a Sand Rail with over 20″ of suspension travel and plenty of horsepower on the towering dunes. Our driver showed us a great time traveling across miles of dunes at great speed. It was exhilarating, exciting, and impressive. We had a blast!
This youtube video SandRail Tour and pictures below show you how much fun we had and how spectacular the dunes are.
