- Follow the route of the famed Lewis & Clark expedition
- See the world-famous Multnomah Falls
This grand day out from Portland to the Columbia River Gorge begins at the historic Vista House, a memorial to American pioneers such as Lewis and Clark who led the first American exploration to the west coast. From here you’ll see the magnificent Multnomah Falls, the tallest in the state and particularly beautiful in the fall and winter, as well as the Bonneville Dam. This is considered one of the most picturesque areas in Rose City so be sure to bring along a camera. Descending down the famed highway loops to the Latourell Falls and Wahkeena Falls, the views are utterly sublime.
There are many other breathtaking natural attractions on display during this memorable Portland gift experience, such as the Horsetails Falls and the Oneonta Gorge, with its fascinating fish ladder, a manmade ‘bridge’ that assists with migration. You might even see a few fish hopping up the steps! Returning to Portland around lunch time, you’ll take the river-level route of the Lewis and Clark expedition to enjoy sumptuous views of Beacon Rock, Cape Horn and Rooster Rock. An unmissable day out in the stirringly beautiful Oregon countryside
