What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Mt Hood Snowshoe Adventure from Portland

The Historic Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood

Your 10-hour trip begins early with pickup from your downtown Portland hotel. Relax in the luxury van and take in the scenery as the city falls away and you enter Mount Hood National Forest. Along the way, stop to see waterfalls and grab a pastry and warm drink. 

Your excursion will make the entire Mt Hood loop, stopping in the Columbia River Gorge, the orchard-rich Hood River area and Government Camp. Each stop offers a different hiking opportunity. Depending on weather conditions, your expert guide will select the best trails of the moment for educational and scenic snowshoe hikes. 

Immerse yourself in the winter wonderland. Your guide will teach you some critical wilderness skills and share insight into the area’s adaptive ecosystem, wildlife and breathtaking geological features. Finish your hike with lunch on the mountain and a glass of local wine.

Next stop is the historic Timberline Lodge. Built in the late 1930s, this National Historic Landmark is a destination for more than two million visitors annually. Take a self-guided tour of the renovated lodge — the exterior of which was once the setting for the classic film The Shining — and cozy up fireside for a cup of cocoa before the drive back to Portland.

Your luxury van returns to your Portland hotel in the evening.

great guiding - Jeff. Interesting history and geology information, beautiful waterfalls, spectacular beyond belief scenic exercise snowshoeing, and great buffet lunch with well timed morning and afternoon snacks and hot drinks. We loved all the other people on the trip and got lots of tips for where to eat in Portland since it was our first time there.
