Once considered one of Oregon’s great mysteries, Thor’s Well is a bowl-shaped hole carved into the basalt shoreline of Cape Perpetua. Also known as the Drainpipe of the Pacific, the seemingly bottomless well perpetually fills and drains throughout the day. During high tide, water shoots out the top like a geyser, reaching heights of up to 40 feet. This stunning geological formation attracts thousands of visitors each year and is one of Oregon’s most popular attractions. Read on to learn more about Thor’s Well and how to make the most of your visit to this natural wonder.
