We start along the Historic Columbia River Highway National Scenic Byway. Some of the waterfalls make include; Latourell Falls, Multnomah Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Wahkeena Falls and Horse Tail Falls.
Crown Point Vista House:
Best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, providing a panoramic view of the Columbia River. The Crown Point Vista House was built in 1916 and refurbished in 2005, with its beautiful marble interior and brass fixtures completely remodeled.
Plunge 249 feet (76 m) over a massive wall of columnar basalt – some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest – before cascading hastily towards the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many famous photographers to give this location their treatment. And if you stand in just the right place, and look way up, behind the falls you see another falls!
At Multnomah Falls, take a picture from any one of the many viewpoints or walk 5mins to the Benson Bride to view the falls from a unique perspective- above!
The second highest year-round waterfall in the United States. Nearly two million visitors a year come to see this ancient waterfall, making it Oregon’s number one public destination. Fed by underground springs from Larch Mountain, the flow over the falls varies but is highest during winter and spring.
Then, we continue driving east farther up the river to the town of Hood River, where breathtaking natural beauty and high winds create a paradise for windsurfers, kite boarders and sightseers. Your tour guide will tell you about the history of the land and the region’s culture, giving you an understanding of how this incredible landscape was shaped many years ago.
