Explore 2 of the Pacific Northwest’s greatest attractions on a 6-hour tour of Columbia Gorge and the Oregon winelands. Look for wildlife in their native habitat, hear tales of historic grandeur, and visit boutique wineries to sample lush Oregon wines.
What to Expect
Enjoy a combined 6-hour sightseeing tour of Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area with the chance to sample the wines of Oregon at boutique wineries.
In the company of a naturalist guide, travel alongside the Columbia River, looking out for Bald Eagles and Osprey, and admire the towering basalt cliffs that formed when the river cut its way through the Cascade Mountain Range.
See some of the region’s 70 waterfalls including Multnomah Falls, the second tallest perennial waterfall in America. Continue east, as the wet forests of the Pacific Northwest give way to Garry Oak, Ponderosa Pines, and other arid vegetation, creating prime growing conditions for grapes.
As you near Hood River, embark on a tour of the local wineries, each one unique. Sample the boutique wines exclusive to Oregon. Your guide will tell the story of the land’s natural and cultural history, so that with each sip you will learn a little more about how the forces that shaped the landscape also shaped the wine in your glass.
