Sheppard's Dell Bridge, Columbia Gorge Historic Highway, Oregon

Columbia Gorge and Waterfalls Coach Tour

Experience first-hand the beauty and grandeur of the Columbia River Gorge.

Experience first-hand the breathtaking vistas, man-made wonders, and ancient history of the nation's only official National Scenic Area.

Retrace Lewis and Clark’s epic journey through the Columbia River Gorge along Oregon’s Historic Scenic Highway. Mountains rise 4,000 feet straight up from the only sea-level passage through the imposing Cascade Mountains. We'll explore both the natural and man-made wonders of this ice-age-carved passage and discuss Native American life and lore.

Highlights include:

  • Vista House on Crown Point, perhaps the most beautiful travelers’ rest station ever built, perched ominously atop sheer cliffs hundreds of feet above the Columbia River
  • Multnomah Falls, at 620 feet, the largest and most picturesque of the seventy-seven waterfalls lining the Oregon side of the gorge
  • Bonneville Dam, one of the gorge’s man-made wonders, generating electricity for thousands of residents and businesses while protecting the native Northwest salmon swimming upstream to spawn
  • Discussions of the region's history, including Lewis and Clark's journey, the story of the historic highway, tales from the once-dangerous Oregon Trail, and Native American life and lore
  • Spectacular views of the Columbia Gorge from above and up-close, providing different but always spectacular views and photo opportunities of the area's natural splendor, its many accessible waterfalls, and the snow-capped Cascade Mountains

By arrangement for private groups only.
