Cascades Fire Scar Mountain Tour – In 2017 Oregon experienced some of the worst local forest fires in history, torching an estimated 400,000 acres of forests across the state. Locally, in Bend we watched the Mt Jefferson and Milli Fires rage while the Nash Complex Fire threatened our iconic Elk Lake Lodge. These fast moving and destructive fires have been successfully extinguished thanks to the support of air tankers, helicopters, and an army of ground teams who battled for three months to hold containment lines. Now is your chance to explore Central Oregon’s incredible fire scarred forest by helicopter at sunset when our mountains explode into the golden hues and bright sunset rays that make for legendary end of day scenic helicopter flights.
