Today you set out to explore two of the greatest attractions of the Pacific Northwest - the Columbia Gorge and Oregon wines! You begin mid-day on your journey, heading east from Portland toward the spectacular Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. As you travel along the mighty Columbia River you will be on the lookout for Bald Eagles and Osprey, while admiring the towering basalt cliffs and other fascinating rock formations formed when the now tame River cut it’s way violently through the Cascade Mountain Range. On a clear day, white-cloaked volcanic peaks loom over you like sentinels guarding the majestic landscape.

You will drive along the Historic Columbia River Highway, where you'll be greeted at nearly every bend of the road with another breath-taking view. Here you can take in a few of the 70 waterfalls found in the Columbia Gorge Scenic Area, including the second tallest perennial waterfall in the US, Multnomah Falls. Opportunities for hiking, splashing, and photography abound, as trails to, under, and around these natural beauties provide ample access for every kind of adventurer.

As you continue heading east, the wet forests of the coastal Pacific Northwest give way to Garry Oak, Ponderosa Pines, and other more arid vegetation, creating prime growing conditions for grapes. Nearing the town of Hood River you will embark on a tour of a few local wineries, each one unique and charming in its own way, and of course sample some of the boutique wines found only here in Oregon. The weather, views, and wines make for an unparalleled vineyard experience.

5.0 / 5
We had never been to Portland and this tour was a great way to see more of the area and learn about its history and unique features. We saw new sights, sampled local wines, and got to experience the Columbia Gorge! This tour is super for couples or small groups to want to see the Gorge and like to learn about wine.
