Your day trip begins early with hotel pickup from downtown Portland. You'll embark en coach for an exhilarating morning drive through the Columbia River Gorge. Catch spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains that flank the river and glimpse a waterfall or two.

Along the forested highway, visit Oregon’s famous waterfall Multnomah Falls. Join your guide and fellow visitors on Benson Bridge and snap a picture of the 611-foot-tall cascade of water as it crashes below. 

Next, continue to Hood River, a picturesque valley town renowned as a prime destination for wind sports. Watch kiteboarders and windsurfers skate across the water as you learn about Hood River’s rich environmental and cultural history. Then take some free time for lunch, shopping or tasting local wines. 

The final stop on your guided tour is the glorious Mount Hood, Oregon’s tallest peak at 11,249 feet (3,429 meters) and Timberline Lodge. Take a mountain walk or a self-guided visit through the renovated lodge that was once the setting for the classic film The Shining.

Your day concludes back in Portland by early evening.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area
The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area protects the spectacular canyon where the Columbia River cuts through the Cascade mountains - with cliffs and overlooks of Washington to the north and Oregon's mountains and waterfalls to the south. The Gorge is unique in its natural and cultural history, as well as its designation as a National Scenic Area. As we drive to Multnomah Falls and Hood River we will be driving through the Columbia River Gorge.
Stop At:  
Multnomah Falls
A waterfall as magnificent and memorable as any in the country is located just a 30- minute drive outside of Portland. Visiting Multnomah Falls, a 611-foot-tall roaring, awe-inspiring cascade of icy water, lets you experience the power and beauty of nature up close and with ease. We will stop here and you will have time to walk to Benson Bridge and explore the historic Multnomah Falls Lodge.
Duration: 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Rowena Crest Viewpoint
Overlooking a major chokepoint along the Ice Age Floods path, Rowena Crest lies at nearly 700 feet above the Columbia River at the upstream end of Rowena Plateau, a miles-long promontory that protrudes into the path of the river. This forces the river around the plateau through a relatively narrow section of the Gorge known as the Rowena Gap. We will stop here and enjoy the view while taking amazing photographs!
Duration: 20 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Trillium Lake
Trillium Lake is a beautiful and popular spot not far from the quaint town of Government Camp. It provides spectacular views of majestic Mt. Hood, Oregon's highest point. This location is well-known for its scenery and abundant recreational opportunities. We will stop here in the summertime and you will have the opportunity to take photographs of Mt Hood reflected in the mirror-like lake.

Pass By:  
Mount Hood
Mt. Hood’s perpetually snowy peak — crowned by eleven glaciers, one for every thousand feet it rises above sea level — can be seen from miles and miles away. It’s home to a total of six ski areas, making it a great base camp for skiers. Beautiful alpine lakes with names like Lost, Trillium and Mirror dot Mt. Hood’s flanks, each offering its own unique view of the mountain.
Stop At:  
Timberline Lodge
Constructed in 1937, Timberline Lodge stands on the south slope of Mt. Hood at an elevation of 6,000 feet. This beautiful 55,000 square foot structure rises out of a pristine alpine landscape and is still being used for its original intent – a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for everyone to enjoy. Legendary and awe-inspiring, it's a tribute to the rugged spirit of the Pacific Northwest and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977.

Our guide Jon was wonderful and very knowledgeable. However, the air conditioning in the van was horrible. I got overheated and sick on the van. Our guide also needed a sound system. The poor guy had to yell to be heard in the back of the van.

The many stops for photos was the best part of this tour. Some areas difficult to drive to because of quota restrictions. Of course getting to know my fellow travelers was another great part of the tour and our guide made the introductions and facilitated discussions along with his narration of the sites we visited. A truly memorable experience and absolutely the best photos guaranteed!

A pleasant and wonderful tour of the Columbia River Gorge

If I rented a car and tried to find the gems found in the gorge on my own, I would have not seen what we’ve seen in the tour. We saw such excellent views on the country side and breathtaking views of MT. Hood up close. And, did not have to drive which I think is cool. Worth every buck!
