Itinerary
Pass By:  
Columbia River Gorge
Millions of years ago, during the formation of the Cascade Mountain Range, lava and other pyroclastic matter flowed west from what would be the Cascades all the way to the Pacific Ocean, creating a thick shell of basalt rock that covered Western Oregon. Then, during the Pleistocene Ice Age, roughly 15,000 years ago, water from the Lake Missoula Flood carved out the Columbia River Gorge as hundreds of cubic miles of water, ice, rock and mud rushed from present-day Montana to the Pacific Ocean. Explore the beauty of the canyon walls and rock formations, breathtaking waterfalls and awe-inspiring visas that make the Columbia River National Scenic Area one of the Seven Wonders of Oregon. Our enthusiastic guides will introduce you to the most amazing places in the Gorge, while providing a comprehensive narrative of this spectacular landscape and its transformative history.
Admission Ticket Free
Pass By:  
Vista House
Perched atop one of the most panoramic overlooks in the Columbia River Gorge, Vista House provides an unrivaled, majestic view of the Gorge. Often referred to as “The Crown Jewel of the Columbia River Gorge,” Vista House was built between 1916 and 1918 as a memorial to Oregon pioneers, a scenic viewpoint, and a comfort station for those traveling on the newly constructed Historic Columbia River Highway. Built with expertly carved sandstone and stunning marble, then finished with bronze lining and amber-green opalescent art glass windows, Vista House and the view it offers are sure to amaze and inspire you.
Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At:  
Latourell Falls
While at Latourell Falls You will be able to walk down the trail to the waterfall (approximately 1/4 mile) and get up close to the waterfall. This dazzling waterfall plunges 249 feet (76 m) over a massive wall of basalt and then rushes through the forest into the Columbia River. The falling water of Latourell is framed by some of the most perfect columnar basalt formations in the Pacific Northwest that are adorned with a large florescent patch of yellow lichen and shrouded in brilliant green flora. We’ll venture down to the punch-bowl pool below the falls, where you’ll hear the tremendous rush of water and feel the cool mist that it creates. You’ll easily realize why this special place is one of the most photographed waterfalls in Oregon.
Duration: 20 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Multnomah Falls
You will have time to walk to Benson Bridge and take photographs and explore the area around Multnomah Falls. Fed by underground streams that originate miles above on Larch Mountain, this ancient 620 foot (189 m) waterfall is divided into two sections; the upper falls plummets an impressive 542 feet into a pool and again drops 69 feet to form a creek that runs into the Columbia River. Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the United States and the highest in Oregon, and is Oregon’s number one natural attraction, drawing over 2.5 million visitors a year from around the world. At the base of the waterfall sits the Historic Multnomah Falls Lodge, a full-service day lodge complete with restaurant, gift shop, snack and espresso bar and interpretative center. Although much of the area surrounding Multnomah Falls was recently damaged by fire, you will be able to visit the lodge and experience the natural beauty of the waterfall.
Duration: 25 minutes

Stop At:  
Horsetail Falls- Columbia River Gorge
If time allows we will stop at this this waterfall (that really looks like a horse tail!) and you will be able to walk up to it for photographs and enjoy the spray from it on a hot summer day.

I loved this tour. Aaron was a great guide and I enjoyed sitting in the front of the van with him, chatting about the waterfalls, Portland, and the state Oregon in general. He's a very cheerful, engaging, and knowledgeable guide. I learned a lot.

If I could I would give it 6 stars! It was more than what we expected. The tour guide Steve was fabulous. He was so polite, kind and gave us lots of great information. We had no idea we were going to see so many beautiful waterfalls. The trip was honestly a perfect way to spend your afternoon if you are a visitor. You get to see so much. The only suggestions I have is to leave more time for Multnomah falls. Thank you Viator and Steve!!
