BEND, OREGON – National Proposal Day has passed but it is not too late to plan your special day on your next visit to Bend. We know how much time and planning goes into each and every proposal, and nothing makes our team of pilots and office staff happier than seeing the complete joy in the faces of our couples on a remote location helicopter proposal!

In honor of National Proposal Day, here are a few our favorite proposal ideas in Bend.

Outdoor Marriage Proposals

We’re huge fans of outdoor marriage proposal ideas. After all, relationships are about experiences, the journey, and adventure. If you and your girlfriend enjoy a good hike, outdoor picnic, or extreme adventure, here are a few unique marriage proposal ideas to get you planning.

Ski Lift ProposalMt Bachelor is the perfect ski mountain in Bend to write different phrases in the snow that are visible to you and your girlfriend as you’re going up the ski lift (you can put love quotes, write out dates/milestones from your relationship, or scribble some nicknames in the snow). At the very top, have the last phrase be “Will You Marry Me”. You can use food coloring to dye the snow to make it easier to read.

Proposing On A Hike – What better place to propose than at the end of the trail? It’s symbolic of your journey and chances are, the view at the top will be breathtaking. In Bend, Tumalo Falls is a great location, or for the more adventurous an epic hike to Broken Top at sunset is one of Central Oregon’s perfect locations to pop the question. You’ll find literally hundreds of special locations in the backcountry of Bend, with a romantic dinner waiting in town at Ariana’s.

Proposing On The Back Nine – Tetherow Resort  in Bend, Oregon boasts a visually striking par 72 layout that was designed by award-winning architect David McLay Kidd. The routing takes full advantage of the stunning panoramic views of the Cascade peaks, including Three Sisters and Broken Top as well as the rugged high desert terrain, the perfect location for a back nine champagne proposal at sunset.

Our three day helicopter retreat offers an epicurean, all-inclusive vacation experience of refined rustic elegance, gourmet cuisine, and warm, welcoming, five star service amidst the romance of a working ranch.
