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 tour was worth the money. My wife and I had a great time and our tour guide Tom was very knowledgeable. We loved the scenic tour and getting to see the Waterfalls. Many places to eat during the lunch break in Hood River. When you got to the Timberline lodge, make sure to ask the front desk to hold the Here's Johnny Ax. This was a great way to see how Beautiful Oregon is. Plus where else can you see Snow, Sun, and Waterfalls all in one day? Enjoy

Eddie was very personable and informative, and he tailored the tour to the group. We had so many stops that broke up the drive while offering the opportunity to experience many sites of Oregon along the way. I could have easily spent more time in the town of Hood River too!

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!
