One of Oregon’s most distinguishing features is the ever-present snow capped peak of Mount Hood. Oregon’s highest mountain stands 11,249 feet tall. Covered in vast expanses of pristine old-growth forests, panoramic alpine meadows, and magnificent mountain lakes, Mount Hood lies at the heart of the Cascade Mountain Range. Join us on our full-day guided tour from Vancouver to Mt. Hood. By visiting Mount Hood with our enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides, you will have multiple opportunities to get the best photographs of the awe-inspiring scenery and learn about the heritage of Oregon’s iconic mountain
Our tour will depart the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver by taking you into the wonders of the Columbia River Gorge. We will follow the Columbia River east to the town of Hood River for lunch before driving up through the Hood River Valley to the south side of Mt. Hood. Stops may include: Multnomah Falls, Bonneville Fish Hatchery, Rowena Crest, a farm stand (seasonally), and Timberline Lodge. Your route may vary based on weather and road conditions.
Multnomah Falls is the second highest year-round waterfall in the US and the highest waterfall in Oregon. At the base of the falls sits the historic Multnomah Falls Lodge, a full-service day lodge featuring a restaurant serving up local cuisine, an extensive gift shop, a snack and espresso bar, and an interpretive center. While visiting Multnomah Falls, you will be able to explore the lodge, hike up to the Multnomah Falls bridge, and experience the natural beauty of this Oregon wonder
Bonneville Fish Hatchery
First built in 1909, the Bonneville Fish Hatchery is Oregon’s largest. The hatchery raises millions of salmon and steelhead each year. Your tour will take you past the natural fish ponds and the Sturgeon Center where you will have the chance to meet “Herman” the sturgeon. Herman is a 75-year old, 10-foot long, 500 pound prehistoric fish; the result of 200 million years of evolution
The city of Hood River, Oregon lies nestled in a fertile valley of the Columbia River Gorge. Popularized as a windsurfing destination in the 1980’s, this former timber town has grown dramatically into an outdoor recreation mecca. We will eat lunch in downtown Hood River which offers a variety of restaurant and craft brewery options
Observe the rapid change in climate and landscape as we drive east towards this iconic viewpoint. The Historic Columbia River Highway winds its way up in a series of horseshoe curves and switchbacks. We will intimately experience the artistic design of this road as we slowly make our ascent. Rowena Crest, easily one of the most photographed viewpoints in Oregon, reveals a dramatic landscape carved out by the ice age Missoula Floods.
Experience locally grown food along Hood River County’s most scenic drive, known as the “Fruit Loop.” The “Fruit Loop” passes through the valley’s orchards, vineyards and family farms. Along this route, seasonally-opened fruit stands offer an assortment of fruits, vegetables, flowers, pies, jams, syrups, local honey, ciders and hand-crafted artisan gifts. When in season, we will stop so you can sample and purchase many of these farm-fresh delights, and bring back home a little bit of Oregon
Mount Hood’s Timberline Lodge
At 11,249 feet, glacier-clad Mt. Hood is nationally known for several alpine ski areas, especially Timberline, which has the longest skiing season in North America. Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions. While visiting the lodge, take time to meander through the public areas of the building, admire its rustic charm, and don’t forget to take lots of photographs of the mountain
