Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Service animals allowed
  • Near public transportation
  • Infant seats available
  • Not recommended for travellers with back problems
  • No heart problems or other serious medical conditions
  • You will be in a small group of a maximum of 10 people.
  • The short- to medium-length hikes to view waterfalls do include uneven terrain and elevation gain. The steepness of the trails and elevation gain will vary based on time of year and weather, as well as the aptitude of the group, but could include as much as 800 feet (250 meters) elevation gain.
  • Weather conditions, maintenance, and other natural events can cause closures of roads, trails and historic structures. In these events, alternate itineraries will be offered. If advance notice is possible, guests will be notified of the change the day prior to their departure.
  • This is a child-friendly tour. Children between the ages of 0 and 11 inclusively are permitted on this tour at the rate listed. Please inform us if you’ll be bringing a child under the age of 7 so we can provide appropriate car seats. Some very small children may find the hiking difficult.
  • Comfortable clothing/shoes for walking over uneven terrain are suggested. Most months of the year include the possibility of rain and mud. Outside of July and August, footwear that can handle occasional muddy trails and puddles is suggested; rain ponchos are available.
  • Travellers should have a moderate physical fitness level
  • On this tour of the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area, you will be taking trails and pathways that are beyond what most visitors experience while here. In fact, about 30% of your time on the tour is on a trail that is used by fewer than 5% of the visitors to the Columbia River Gorge.
  • The tour also supports the local communities by providing snacks from a locally-based purveyor, a small woman-owned business in Portland. In addition, if you choose to purchase something from the Vista House, which stocks a large variety of local craftspeople (including Native American craftspeople), proceeds go to the not-for-profit foundation that maintains the rest stop and historical site.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 10 travellers

My boyfriend and I were so happy to find a tour operator in Portland who is still offering fun experiences during Covid times and has clearly put substantial thought into safety. That being said, although there were other people on this tour and it required car travel, the

The views: wow! The waterfalls: cold, gorgeous, so impressive. The hikes were easy enough for someone who isn't a regular hiker, but still fun, I felt like I really got into the forest. Edwin was so informative and really loves what he does. He did a great job connecting with

Great experience, would do it again! It was so cool to see the waterfalls with all the spring rain. The guides gave me the perfect mix of time with the group and time to myself. 10/10 would recommend.
