Vad du kommer att göra

Multnomah Falls and other waterfalls and vistas of the Columbia Gorge are astonishing icons of geology, the sort that have inspired mythology and lore of warriors, gods and passions in every world culture. Meet the tallest waterfall in the state, and a few of the shorter but even more stunning ones, too; falls which could only be the daughters and sons of legend.

In this half-day experience, we will explore wonders in our customizable small-group, half-day experience with short hikes (up to 3 miles/5 km) and visits to overlooks and vistas that will have you gasping in awe. While Multnomah Falls and its iconic Benson Bridge are together the most-visited tourist attraction in the Portland area, they are only a part of our experience.

We will meet at our shop in inner SE Portland, where we'll ride in our Mercedes Sprinter vans to the nearby gorge. Depending on weather conditions, we could visit a few small hidden waterfalls or spectacular plunge-style falls whose columnar basalt has us learning words for "amazing" in other languages.

We'll also tell you stories, geology, botany and oft-repeated tales of pioneers and road-builders, but also the old stories we've learned, of gods and wild spirits and about the oldest North American civilization, forever altered by “manifest destiny."

Please note we book directly as well as through AirBNB, and your group may be up to 10.

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with partners & guides Edwin, Jonathan, Carrie and Eddie will host the experiences. I'm a published writer of essays and professional storyteller, and each of the narratives around which our tours are based is a collaboration between us, writers and route designers, as a movable narrative, what we call place-based storytelling.

Among us, we have decades of experience guiding bicycling, hiking and scenic tours in the Columbia Gorge, as well as full liability and injury insurance, wilderness readiness training and education in the botany and geology of this place. We have taken the best parts of our 1000s of visits and applied it to what we do here.

Var ni kommer att vara

Meet in central Portland at 833 SE Main #120 to be driven to the Columbia River Gorge, full of waterfalls and wonders! We'll stop at the Vista House, conditions permitting. Each waterfall will include a short hike, so you may hike up to 2.5 miles (4 km) in total. If your group has appetite for more strenuous hikes, just ask; hiking is our business!

This is a very do-able thing if you have a car. And although we had a car, we wanted to sit back/enjoy the ride and that’s exactly what we did. Sarah was very informative on different landmarks and knew a lot of history on the area. It was super chill and fun!

Edwin did an amazing job leading this tour! He did an excellent job leading the group to all of the waterfalls as well as giving the history and geology of the area. I would totally take this tour again and recommend it to others. Well worth the time and expense!

OMG. What a phenomenal tour!!! Wasn’t expecting too much, but Jonathan was one of the most knowledgeable guides I’ve had. His “monologues” were perfect and so well timed, from history to nature to politics and economy, very interesting and fun and memorable. The waterfalls are speechless (duh!) but it was really the stories that made it special. Thank you Jonathan and the team, great experience. Made me fall in love with Portland even more!

Really wonderful tour of the Gorge and it’s waterfalls. Having the tour guide navigate the roads and tell us the history of the falls was also great. We were really happy with our experience!
