Mitä teet

Multnomah Falls and other waterfalls and vistas of the Columbia Gorge are astonishing icons of geology, the sort that have inspired mythology and lore of warriors, gods and passions in every world culture. Meet the tallest waterfall in the state, and a few of the shorter but even more stunning ones, too; falls which could only be the daughters and sons of legend.

In this half-day experience, we will explore wonders in our customizable small-group, half-day experience with short hikes (up to 3 miles/5 km) and visits to overlooks and vistas that will have you gasping in awe. While Multnomah Falls and its iconic Benson Bridge are together the most-visited tourist attraction in the Portland area, they are only a part of our experience.

We will meet at our shop in inner SE Portland, where we'll ride in our Mercedes Sprinter vans to the nearby gorge. Depending on weather conditions, we could visit a few small hidden waterfalls or spectacular plunge-style falls whose columnar basalt has us learning words for "amazing" in other languages.

We'll also tell you stories, geology, botany and oft-repeated tales of pioneers and road-builders, but also the old stories we've learned, of gods and wild spirits and about the oldest North American civilization, forever altered by “manifest destiny."

Please note we book directly as well as through AirBNB, and your group may be up to 10.

Missä tulette olemaan

Meet in central Portland at 833 SE Main #120 to be driven to the Columbia River Gorge, full of waterfalls and wonders! We'll stop at the Vista House, conditions permitting. Each waterfall will include a short hike, so you may hike up to 2.5 miles (4 km) in total. If your group has appetite for more strenuous hikes, just ask; hiking is our business!

This was such a great tour! The waterfalls were gorgeous and we learned a lot of important information about Oregon’s history and climate change as well.

Kerry was super gentle and told us very cool stories. She is very knowledgeable and allowed the group to enjoy at our own pace. Very easy and relaxing trip. Beautiful waterfalls.

This tour was absolutely the highlight of our trip. Our guide, Jeri, was so kind and knowledgeable, and really made our experience special. We were able to see some truly beautiful waterfalls that we wouldn’t have seen on our own. We learned new things about Portland, the forest, the rivers, and more. I highly recommend this tour!

Fabulous tour of the Columbia River Gorge near Portland. Multanomah Falls gets a lot of the fanfare, and it is VERY lovely, but our tour guide, Edwin Skaug, saved the best for last with Latourell Falls - a fantastic natural cathedral of geometric basalt rock carved by the waterfall, colored by iridescent lichens and moss. You can't tell from the roadway how amazing this waterfall is, you have to do the mild hike to the base of the falls. Horsetail Falls and Wahkeena Falls are also great - be prepared for a bit of an uphill climb to Wahkeena. The views of the Columbia River in all directions from the Vista House are beyond stunning. Edwin is a laid-back and amusing tour guide. He is full of good information, both historical and practical. COVID protocols observed in reason: masks were required in the van which only holds up to 9 tourists (we had 6 which was very comfortable), as well as in the restrooms and gift shops at Multanomah Falls, and Vista House, but not in the outdoor spaces. A half-day morning tour was the perfect amount of time for us as we were constricted by a schedule.
