Columbia Gorge, wine and waterfalls tour

Savour two of the greatest attractions the Pacific northwest has to offer: the Columbia Gorge and Oregon wines! Learn the ins and outs of the gorge while spotting for wildlife and hearing tales of historic grandeur, before visiting boutique wineries for sipping and learning about the art of viticulture. Heading east from Portland you reach the spectacular Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. Travelling along the mighty Columbia River, be on the lookout for Bald Eagles and Osprey, while admiring the towering basalt cliffs and other fascinating rock formations formed when the river cut its way through the Cascade Mountain Range. On a clear day, snowcapped volcanic peaks loom like sentinels guarding the majestic landscape. Breathtaking views await you on the Historic Columbia River Highway, where you can see several of 70 waterfalls found in the area, including the second tallest perennial waterfall in the US, Multnomah Falls. Opportunities for hiking, splashing, and photography abound, as trails to, under, and around these natural beauties provide ample access for every kind of adventurer. Continuing east, the wet forests of the coastal Pacific northwest give way to Garry Oak, Ponderosa Pines, and other more arid vegetation, creating prime growing conditions for grapes. Nearing the town of Hood River enjoy a tour of a few local wineries, each one unique and charming in its own way, and of course sample some of the boutique wines found only here in Oregon. The weather, views, and wines make for an unparalleled vineyard experience. Savour two of the greatest attractions the Pacific northwest has to offer: the Columbia Gorge and Oregon wines!
