Due to the wildfire on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge this tour will be running on a modified itinerary (see below). Once the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge is open we will go back to our original itinerary.

Modified itinerary:

Visit Silver Falls State Park, which is best known for its magnificent waterfalls! See pictures of them below.  People call it the “crown jewel” of the Oregon State Parks system, and once you visit, you know why. Silver Falls State Park is the kind of standout scenic treasure that puts Oregon firmly onto the national—and international—stage. Its beauty, boundless recreational opportunities and historic presence keep it there. Nestled in the foothills of Oregon’s Cascade Mountains,  the sprawling 9,200 acre property is the largest state park in Oregon, and one of the most popular. While here we will explore part of the Trail of Ten Falls, a spectacular, nationally recognized hiking trail that weaves through a dense forested landscape. We will take short hikes to several of the waterfalls along this trail and you will be able to spend time at these beautiful waterfalls!

Original itinerary:

Multnomah Fall

The number #1 attraction in Portland area… Multnomah Falls & Gorge Waterfall Tour. The great ice age Lake Missoula Flood left scars literally from Montana to the Pacific Ocean. Take photographs as we explore the waterfalls. Our Tour Guides will share research uncovering the effects of the Lake Missoula Flood in Northwest Oregon and Southwest Washington. This catastrophic flood propelled over 500 cubic miles of water, ice, rock, and mud across eastern Washington, scouring the Columbia River Gorge, and covering the Willamette Valley with up to 400 feet of water and left gravel bars a mile wide and hundreds of feet high. In addition, our guides will show you many of the signs still visible today.

Highlights:

-Bring a camera! The views of Portland, Multnomah Falls and Cascade Mountains are indescribable!

-En-route to the waterfalls, learn about the geological landscape and the region’s culture, giving you an understanding of how this incredible terrain was shaped over time.

-Enjoy views of gorgeous waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.

Itinerary:

We don’t just drive by the waterfalls! We stop and allow you to get out and up close. We start along the Historic Columbia River National Scenic Highway . Some of the locations we may visit include Portland Women’s Forum, Crown Point Vista House, Latourell Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Multnomah Falls and Horsetail Falls.

  • Crown Point Vista House: 20160221_163346(1)

Best known of the scenic lookouts along the Historic Columbia River Highway, providing a panoramic view of the Columbia River. Crown Point Vista House opened in 1916 and underwent a complete remodel in 2005.

  • Latourell Falls: DSC02507

Plunges 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 this captivating location.

  • Wahkeena Falls: wahkeena falls

Most beautiful in the Yakima language sometimes spelled Wah-kee-na, tumbles 242 feet in a cascading type of falls with 3 plunging falls. On up behind this falls is a cascade which flows a long way. . . and then you come to Fairy Falls.

  • Multnomah Falls: mmexport1445389427692

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.

  • Horsetail Falls: 1280-1280.c9f5060a5a64bf911b0c7bb598b78f289f758742_whjt_59_whjt4_t.02f8e2

Horsetail Falls was named for its distinctive form and plunges 176 feet. The trail leads to Upper Horsetail Falls, also called Ponytail Falls. There the trail leads behind the base of the Falls. Horsetail Falls is a great opportunity to stop and take some photos or simply enjoy the beauty of the surrounding area.

  • Return to Portland.
