Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Mt Hood Day Trip from Portland to Multnomah Falls and Hood River

Columbia River Tour to Multnomah Falls, Hood River and Columbia River Gorge

Your 8.5-hour trip begins early with hotel pickup from downtown Portland. You'll embark en coach for an exhilarating morning drive through the Columbia River Gorge. Catch spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains that flank the river and glimpse a waterfall or two as you approach the Crown Point Vista House. 

At this historic building, constructed in 1916 as a ‘comfort station’ for weary travelers, you'll admire sweeping panoramic views of Oregon and Washington before heading down into the lush green forests that make up the National Scenic Area. 

Along the forested highway, visit Oregon’s signature waterfalls including Latourell Falls, Wahkeena Falls, Horsetail Falls and the famous Multnomah Falls. Join your guide and fellow visitors on Benson Bridge and snap a picture of the 611-foot-tall cascade of water as it crashes below. 

Next, continue to Hood River, a picturesque valley town renowned as a prime destination for wind sports. Watch kiteboarders and windsurfers skate across the water as you learn about Hood River’s rich environmental and cultural history. Then take some free time for lunch, shopping or wine-tasting (if whimsy strikes you!). 

The final stop on your guided tour is the glorious Mount Hood, Oregon’s tallest peak at 11,249 feet (3,429 meters) and Timberline Lodge. Take a mountain walk or a self-guided visit through the renovated lodge that was once the setting for the classic film The Shining.

Your day concludes back in Portland by early evening.

This day trip was a great way to catch the highlights of the gorgeous Columbia River Gorge. Our guide, Julia, was so lovely and very knowledgeable about the area. Really loved the contrasts of the lush greenery and clear skies in the Gorge with the beautiful blankets of snow in Mt Hood. Amazing!

This tour was worth the money. We had a great time and our tour guide Gunner was very knowledgeable. We loved getting to see the Waterfalls and hearing fun Portland/Oregon facts. The lunch break in Hood River was wonderful Go try out Double Mountain Brewery and Pizza!. Do yourself a favor and take this tour. A great way to get outside of Portland and see how Beautiful Oregon is. Plus where else can you see Snow, Sun, and Waterfalls all in one day?

Best way to see the beautiful scenery, leaving all the driving to a professional. The many waterfalls were beautiful. Mt.Hood and Timberline Lodge are breathtaking. Great scenic photography opportunities on this tour. Suggested by the tourguide, we had the best salmon fish and chips at Full Sail Brewery.
