Hop-on board one of our custom equipped 4x4 Mercedes-Benz vehicles, kick back, and get ready to take in the majesty of the Columbia River Gorge. You'll ride along the Historic Columbia River Gorge Highway and slip into the past as your native Oregonian guide takes you through the history of this renowned region, customized just for your private group’s preferences. Stopping at Chanticleer viewpoint, Crown Point, and the Vista House you'll be perfectly positioned for breathtaking views and stunning photographs. Learn what makes the Gorge so geologically unique and why it's a nationally designated Scenic Area.
Home to one of the highest concentrations of waterfalls, your guide will handpick the best falls to visit and take you on an unforgettable tour. From Wahkeena Falls to the infamous 620-foot Multnomah Falls to several secret locals-only spots, you'll see the full expanse of everything the Gorge has to offer. Sound fishy? It better! Next comes the Columbia River Salmon ladders and Oregon's largest fish hatchery and Sturgeon Research Center. And no visit to the Gorge would complete without a stop at the Bonneville Dam.
Let it all sink in with an afternoon of lunch, fresh Oregon fruit, and wine tasting in Hood River, the windsurfing capital of the world. The Hood River Valley grows the best pears, apples, and cherries in the Pacific Northwest! 25 wineries have emerged in this naturally rich Northwest area just over the last decade. The dramatic transition from hot, dry desert in the east to the cool moist foothills of the west makes this area truly unique for wine. Known as the “world of wine in 40-miles,” and often referred to as the best kept secret in the Pacific Northwest, the Columbia River hosts 30 different wine varietals. From Albarino to Zinfandel, you’ll taste the full range of the region’s wine while you enjoy the unparalleled beauty of the Gorge.
