This off-road tour is open to all PCA members and their Porsche SUVs (Cayenne, Macan) and lifted (Safari) Porsche sports cars. Non-Porsche vehicles are permitted if the registrant is a PCA member.


Join fellow Porsche enthusiasts and adventurers in the beautiful Methow Valley in North-Central Washington for a weekend of exploring the valley and mountains in your Porsche SUV or lifted Porsche (Safari) sports car. We will be driving primarily on gravel/dirt roads and forest service roads during our excursions in the local area. Roads will not be technical or abusive to your vehicle, but you will encounter dirt, dust, and rocks. Roads and trails are well within the capabilities of any stock Porsche SUV. You just need to be willing to get your rig a little dirty. As defined in the PCA Off-Road Minimum Driving Tour Standards, this is defined as a Category 2 off-road tour.  We will be spending Friday and Saturday nights at Howard’s on the River in Pateros, WA (see lodging details below).


September 15th-17th, 2023

Howard’s on the River, 233 Lakeshore Dr, Pateros, WA, 98846

King and Double/Queen rooms are available in limited numbers at a discounted group rate of $125.99/night.
