From Portland: Columbia Gorge Waterfalls and Mt. Hood Tour

1. From Portland: Columbia Gorge Waterfalls and Mt. Hood Tour

Explore the Columbia River Gorge and Mount Hood National Forest on board a luxury passenger van. Enjoy picturesque Pacific Northwest scenery on well-maintained trails with an expert guide. Depart from downtown Portland and drive towards Troutdale, known as the Gateway to the Gorge. Enjoy the journey along the Historic Columbia River Highway, the first planned scenic roadway in the United States. Arrive at Crown Point Vista House, an overlook that sits high above the Columbia River. From here, go deeper into the Columbia River National Scenic Area to the first waterfall for the day, the dramatic Latourell Falls. This waterfall plunges 249 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt. Depending on the season, a short walk will take you closer to the falls. Proceed next to the grand Multnomah Falls, which plummets to the ground from 620 feet in two major steps. Explore the Multnomah Falls Historic Lodge and stand on the easily accessible viewing platform that offers a full view of the Benson Bridge and cascading falls beyond. Next up is Hood River, known as the "Windsurfing Capital of the World", where you can explore and grab some lunch. After, set out heading south, through the Fruit Loop orchards and lavender farms. If time permits, you may even make a brief stop at one of the farm stands. Then, climb about 6,000 feet in elevation to Timberline Lodge. This National Historic Landmark sits proudly against Oregon’s highest peak, Mount Hood. Take a walking tour at the lodge and enjoy the Cascade Mountain Range views from the lodge’s patios, before a relaxing journey back to Portland.

It was a small group in the tour which made for a relaxing and enjoyable trip. The guide was knowledge and told about each area we traveled through and especially the areas we stopped at. She gave many recommendations for lunch so we have a hard time choosing but with it being Sunday some were closed. She kept us on time by tellling how long we had at each stop. I would recommend this adverture to all travelers.

We loved this day trip so much!!! Dominique was awesome! She was the right amount of talking, fun, and informative. She had great stories and a good speaking voice. I only wish we had more time!! I recommend this tour company and this particular trip to everyone!!!

This was a great experience. The waterfalls were beautiful! It was nice to sit back and view the attractions while someone else drove.
