Your Itinerary

    1Portland, OR
    Welcome to the City of Roses! Portland's history and culture has forever been entwined with the two rivers that flow around and thru it: the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. If you're planning to arrive early into Portland, talk to our agents about putting together a city tour, crossing many of Portland's beautiful bridges, and even stopping at the International Test Garden featuring over 6800 rose bushes!

    2Astoria, OR
    Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies, close to where Lewis & Clark wintered at Fort Clatsop during their Corps of Discovery expedition. Just stepping off the boat you'll have access to the city trolley - a quaint ride along the waterfront that will explain all the highlights of Astoria - and the Columbia River Maritime Museum, examining the history of crossing the bar and the actual ships and artifacts of ships that found the crossing too dangerous. Other options from here: Fort Clatsop Tour & Astoria Experience, or Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center at Cape Disappointment.

    3Mount St. Helens, WA
    There is nothing more magnificient or eye-catching than the beautiful Mount St. Helens. She is a local treasure, despite her grumblings and 1980 eruption. Everyone should take this complimentary excursion to Johnston Ridge Observatory. Make sure to watch the film, where you can hear Johnston call out: "Vancouver! Vancouver! This is it!" His last transmission before perishing in the eruption.

    4Stevenson, WA
    We'll enjoy some cruising time along the river before reaching the port of Stevenson, WA. But the fun you'll have! Choose from the ever popular Multnomah Falls excursion that crosses the Bridge of the Gods to explore the falls, or the Bonneville Dam & Columbia River Gorge Interpretive Center. The fish ladders are always fun, and you'll stand in awe at the power of the dam.

    5The Dalles, OR
    The Dalles sits on the east side of the Gorge, with Mt Hood to the south and Mt Adams to the north. Lewis & Clark camped here at Rock Fort Camp during their expedition.

    6Pendleton, OR/Richland, WA
    The Hanford Reach Museum in Richland is an amazing option for your fun today. Or book the Pendleton Signature Tour: underground city tour, BBQ lunch at Hamley's Restaurant, and visits to the Tamastslikt Cultural Institute and Pendleton Woolen Mills.

    7Clarkston, WA
    At the border lies Clarkston, WA and Lewiston, ID - I wonder how they got their names? There's so much history and culture to explore here, including the complimentary excursion to the Nez Perce National Historic Park. But the Hells Canyon Jet Boat Signature Tour is always a hit. Be sure to sign up for this one in advance - it fills up!

    8Disembark in Clarkston, WA
    Talk to our agents about travel arrangements, or lengthening your stay with a hotel in Spokane, WA.
