As we continue heading east, you may notice a dramatic change in climate and plant life…

The wet forests of the coastal Pacific Northwest give way to Garry Oak, Ponderosa Pines, and other more arid vegetation, creating prime growing conditions for grapes.

Nearing the town of Hood River we will embark on a tour of a few local wineries, each one unique and charming in its own way, and of course sample some of the boutique wines found only here in Oregon. Some of the wineries we may visit include Marchesi, Hood River Vineyards, Cathedral Ridge, Wy’East Vineyards and Pheasant Valley. The weather, views, and wines make for an unparalleled vineyard experience.

After our fill of excellent wines, we head toward Mt. Hood, whose snow-capped peak dominates the skyline. Along the way, you can enjoy hikes along rushing rivers and fish-laden streams. We will make our way up the mountain to historic Timberline Lodge, where you can take in the monumental views and read about local legends and pioneering skiers.

After a day of waterfalls, wineries, and mountains, it is back to Portland in time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city!

Traveler Testimonials

Here is what travelers are saying about our trips right now:

We highly recommend this 12 hour tour! Pleasant ride, plenty of beverages and snacks, and a series of stops to make the trek from Seattle more comfortable. One stop at a wildlife refuge and another at an old growth forest added more interest to the tour. We pulled over at a few places to take in the view and snap photos. In the National Monument, our guide Marissa laid out a wonderful lunch consisting of wine, soft drinks, grilled chicken breasts and several salads (kale, chick pea, and some sort of grain). The Johnston Visitor Center was certainly a highlight of the tour supplying us with a great video, a hike, and clear views of Mount St. Helens. On the way back we saw Mount Rainier and stopped for a brief walk across the Skyway in Tacoma. A GREAT tour!

Viator Reviews, August 2018

Day tour to Mt. St Helens was a great experience. Everything was well planned and prepared for. The tour van was a large Mercedes sprinter van that was very comfortable. Lunch was solid. The tour itself was very well planned with nice stops along the way to the volcano. The tour guide did a great job keeping everyone engaged by providing good information and fun facts…stuff that you don’t get if you go solo without a guide.
This tour was unique in the sense that there is more to the visit than just a visit to a national park/ monument. In this case there was a major event in the not-too-distant past that drastically altered the entire community and landscape. Was very cool to see the contrast between the immediate area around St Helens and the unaffected area leading up to it. Such a unique experience all the way around. I highly recommend it.

Great experience for the money. They may be on the higher end of pricing for tour companies but they offer a high-touch and all-inclusive product along with some of the best guides in the business. Definitely a 5-star business!

Mt St. Helen’s day tour was awesome. I went in not knowing what to expect and not knowing much of anything about Mt. St. Helen’s…booked the trip as I had a day to kill. This tour was fantastic. Comfy bus, awesome tour guide, good lunch and great scenery, nice group. Got a good workout too!!
