Know More about this tour

This scenic tour begins with a pickup from hotels located in the Downtown Portland area or from prearranged locations.

Due to the wildfire on the Oregon side of the Columbia River Gorge this tour will be running on a modified itinerary.

Modified itinerary:

Visit the beautiful Columbia River Gorge! We will first stop at Portland Women's Forum. The view from here is absolutely breathtaking and it's one of the best spots to soak in a view of one of the most beautiful places on earth: the magnificent, awesome Columbia River Gorge. With the scenic Vista House and the wide expanse of the Columbia Gorge in the background, more photographs of the Columbia Gorge are probably taken from this point than anywhere else.

As we drive to our next stop we will slowly drive past Multnomah Falls. Due to the Eagle Creek Fire this waterfall is still closed to visitors but you will be able to view it and take pictures of it as we drive past it!

Next we will stop at Starvation Creek Falls. This two-tiered waterfall is impressive!The powerful fall drops out of a narrow channel and into a natural bowl, where the creek spills out and down to a rocky mess before cascading past a picnic area and on to the Columbia River. When the creek is running high, the lower falls actually split around a large rock, forming a segmented lower tier.

The Bridge of the Gods will be our third stopduring our exploration of the Gorge.Constructed in 1926, the Bridge of the Gods takes it name from a Native American myth describing a large natural rock bridge over the Columbia River at the bridge site. The bridge was originally 1,127-feet long but was lengthened to 1,856-feet and raised in conjunction with the construction of Bonneville Dam downstream from the site.

Our final stop in the Gorge will be the Bonneville Fish Hatchery. Bonneville Hatchery is the largest of Oregons 33 hatcheries. The hatchery raises 8 million Fall Chinook, 1.2 million Coho, 200,000 Summer Steelhead, and 60,000 Winter Steelhead. You will be able to explore the Historic Egg Incubation Building, visit Herman the Sturgeon, and feed the fish!

Originalitinerary:
Spend an afternoon at Multnomah Falls and the Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls. Travelthe Historic Columbia River Highway Scenic Byway. Along the way, see the Crown Point Vista House, the most popular of the scenic lookouts along the highway, providing a panoramic view of the Columbia River.

Latourell Falls plunges 249 feet over a massive wall of columnar basalt, some of the best formations in the Pacific Northwest, before cascading hastily toward the Columbia River. This waterfall is usually most recognized for the large patch of bright yellow lichen adorning the cliff face to the right of the falls, and this characteristic has led many a famous photographer to this captivating location.

The tour ends with a return trip and drop-off in Portland.

  • Very informative guide, saw awesome sights

  • I guess it's not exactly fair to rate this trip since we did not go on the planned excursion. The road to Multnomah and the Gorge area was closed due to recent wildfires. Instead we went to Silver Falls State Park which was a little further away and probably not quite as impressive, but it was still very worthwhile. Phil, the guide, was very informative and pleasant. I would still recommend this trip.

  • It was great. Driver-guide was terrific and waterfalls were wonderful.

  • Beautiful Beautiful...if you had mentioned that it was an hour drive...I might not have gone. I did know that it would be 3.5 hours and enjoyed this very much.

  • Unfortunately, we had to do a modified tour due to the wildfires, but the trip to the state park was awesome! We got to see three really beautiful waterfalls and even went behind one, which was awesome! Our tour guide was very nice and super knowledgeable too. Only thing I would have changed was the bus itself. Since we got picked up second to last, we had to cram into the back seat with another couple, which was very uncomfortable for the 3 hour drive round trip. All of the other chairs in the bus were very comfortable, but they were taken by others and not shared throughout the day, which we found a bit annoying. We were grateful when we got dropped off to get away from the seat we were in!

  • Great guide. Enjoyed the beautiful sights.

  • Carrie was a terrific guide. Very enthusiastic and informative.
    Thanks!

  • The tour was great! We saw four major waterfalls and had opportunities to hike at Multnomah Falls and around two additional water falls. Our tour guide was very friendly and highlighted the history of the region as well.

  • We were unable to take this tour because of the fires.
    The tour we did take to Silver Falls was quite nice. Our guide, Jessica, was knowledgeable and an excellent driver.

  • On September 12, Silver Falls State Park with viewing of three waterfalls was substituted for the Multnomah Falls/Columbia River Gorge tour and we were not made known of this until after loading the van at pickup location. VERY disappointed in this tour. The tour guide John did his best but I feel as if the company just subbed something for the money!! I realize now that the Gorge area was inaccessible due to wildfires but we should have been given advance notice that the subbed change was being made so that we could have been given a choice as to whether this was something we wanted to do. I am disappointed that Hub World did not give prior notification of this change. If I could, I would request that we not be charged for this tour!
