Full description
Enjoy a combined 6-hour sightseeing tour of Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area with the chance to sample the wines of Oregon at boutique wineries. In the company of a naturalist guide, travel alongside the Columbia River, looking out for Bald Eagles and Osprey, and admire the towering basalt cliffs that formed when the river cut its way through the Cascade Mountain Range. See some of the region’s 70 waterfalls including Multnomah Falls, the second tallest perennial waterfall in America. Continue east, as the wet forests of the Pacific Northwest give way to Garry Oak, Ponderosa Pines, and other arid vegetation, creating prime growing conditions for grapes. As you near Hood River, embark on a tour of the local wineries, each one unique. Sample the boutique wines exclusive to Oregon. Your guide will tell the story of the land’s natural and cultural history, so that with each sip you will learn a little more about how the forces that shaped the landscape also shaped the wine in your glass.

Chris - the tour guide was excellent - fun, knowledgeable and helpful.

Chris had was extremely knowledgeable about the nature and waterfalls along the Columbian Gorge. He imparted this in a story like manner and conversed with everyone on the tour. He also knew his wines and especially about the wines in the Oregon region. The coffee and cookies were also a nice touch.
