Columbia Gorge Waterfalls & Mt. Hood Tour from Portland

by Wildwood Adventures Duration 8h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $129

Follow the path of an ancient riverbed, carved by the last ice age, past breathtaking waterfalls and the Bridge of the Gods. Traverse Oregon’s fertile fruit valley on the way to the alpine top of a volcano.

Departing Portland, we’ll head east along the Columbia River toward the Gateway to the Gorge! We will join the beautiful Historic Columbia River Highway, winding our way further into the gorge until we reach our first stop, the Crown Point Vista House, where we can take in the spectacular 180-degree views of the Columbia River and gorge below. Time and weather permitting, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the interior of the Vista House, an intricately designed observatory and museum, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We’ll continue our journey further into the Columbia River National Scenic Area, where your guide will share information on the history and geology of the gorge along the way, giving insight into what makes this a truly unique and special environment. We’ll be sure to stop at some of the gorge’s most iconic and breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls, including the famed Multnomah Falls where we will spend extra time exploring. This will allow guests the opportunity to enjoy the Multnomah Falls Historic Lodge and if interested, walk to the viewing platform for a closer look at the Benson Bridge and the cascading falls beyond.

Onward to Hood River, known as the Windsurfing Capital of the World! Here, we will pause for an hour with a chance to explore the town and enjoy lunch before continuing south, through the picturesque Fruit Loop orchards and lavender farms.

Together, we will wind our way up the mountain, through Mt. Hood National Forest, climbing to roughly 6,000 ft. At the top, we will visit Timberline Lodge, a National Historic Landmark sitting proudly against Oregon’s highest peak, Mt. Hood! We’ll explore the lodge inside and out and enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding Cascade Mountain Range.

After the full day of adventures, you will return to Portland (approximately 1.5-hour drive).
