Full description
Head east from Portland with your guide, crossing into Washington State to float down the exciting White Salmon River with professional river guides. It's a small river that punches well above its weight with dozens of rapids packed into 2.5 hours on the river.

Dry off, enjoy a casual picnic lunch, and your guide will lead you to the Hood River, where you’ll sip like locals at two boutique wineries. In an intimate setting, learn local winemaking history and the art of viticulture. The area’s microclimate allows for cool-climate white wines and pinot noirs, as well as bold sun-loving reds like Cabernet, Malbec, Syrah, and more.

As you travel through the Columbia Gorge from the river toward the wineries, you’ll get a scenic overview of the region, possibly including views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Multnomah Falls, Beacon Rock, and other Columbia Gorge landmarks. On the route back to Portland, travel the scenic highway for an up-close view of the waterfalls that make the area famous.
