What You Can Expect

Columbia Gorge Waterfalls and Wine Tour from Portland

Wine Tasting in the Stunning Columbia Gorge

After pickup from your downtown Portland hotel, relax on a scenic drive by luxury vehicle to Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. Travel along the mighty Columbia River and be on the lookout for bald eagles and osprey, all while admiring the towering basalt cliffs formed from the river cutting through the Cascade Mountains.

When you arrive, your professional guide will take you to a few waterfalls. This area is home to the second-tallest perennial waterfall in the US, Multnomah Falls.

Spend some time hiking around these stunning natural wonders, and be sure to have your camera ready! Then, continue driving east, where wet forests of the coastal Pacific Northwest provide views of oaks, pines and other arid vegetation, creating prime growing conditions for grapes.

As you near the town of Hood River, embark on a tour of a few local wineries, each one unique and charming in its own way. At each winery, relax and sample some boutique wines found only in Oregon. The weather, views and wine make for an unparalleled vineyard experience.

In between wineries, your guide will tell you about the history of the land and the region’s culture, giving you an understanding of how this incredible landscape has shaped the wine in your glass.

Some of the wineries you may visit include Cathedral Ridge, Wy'East Vineyards, and others depending on the season. After your tour, relax on the drive back to your downtown Portland hotel.

My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide Kelsey was excellent, and she had so much knowledge during the entire trip, of everything Oregon. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone I can. I would recommend a heartier snack selection, as the trip is long and during the lunch hour. Thank you!

Aaron was a very knowledgeable tour guide who did a great job of creating a congenial atmosphere. I could have spent more time at the waterfalls, but some of the group could have skipped them completely and gone straight for the wineries. Highly recommend to people looking to get a taste of Oregon's natural beauty as well as sample great wine. PS - there's a little bit of walking on concrete, so appropriate shoes are helpful.

The waterfalls were beyond beautiful and our guide, Brandy, was amazing! Very knowledgable and interesting. She took us to the best spots and we had a great time with her. The wine in Hood River is also to die for! We were so glad to have been able to experience this on our first trip to Portland. Our next visit will definitely be spent exploring some of the hiking trails Brandy told us about:

Great scenery, wonderful wineries, delectable snacks. Aaron could tone down his middle-school-teacher -level enthusiasm a bit, but he was very knowledgeable and pleasant. Geez, it was hot, though!
