Day 1 Portland, OR
At the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, Portland was a sanctuary for pioneers and is a fitting place to start your journey. The city is surrounded by national parkland, but also offers an array of museums and shopping. If arriving a day early, we recommend the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum or the Portland Art Museum.
Day 2 Astoria, OR
The oldest American settlement west of the Rockies, the town of Astoria is steeped in culture and tradition. From more than 70 Victorian-era homes to the replica of Fort Clatsop, where Lewis & Clark spent the winter of 1805-1806, Astoria is alive with history. Astoria is well-known for being an integral part of the lucrative fur trading industry in the 1800's with the Pacific Fur Company building its primary trading post in the town in 1811.
Day 3 Mount St. Helens, WA
Perhaps the most impactful of all landmarks in the region is Mount St. Helens. From high on an overlook, bear witness to the awesome power of the volcano whose eruption in 1980 scorched 230 square miles of forest land and forever changed the landscape. Expert guides will show you the pumice plain and lava dome as they explain the impact of the volcano had on the lives of those in the surrounding towns.
Day 4 Stevenson, WA
Multnomah Falls is the landmark of the day. After cruising past the waterfall, we will bring you to the falls for an up close view of one of North America's tallest waterfalls. Stroll along the footpath to Benson Bridge for the best view of the 620-foot plunge. The village of Stevenson has a classic small town charm with a unique Northwest flair and is easily accessible from our dock.
Day 5 Portland, OR
End your cruise back in the city of Portland. The red brick of Pioneer Courthouse Square and the beautiful fountains of Waterfront Park can easily fill an afternoon. The Saturday Market, one of the largest farmer's markets in the United States is also a one-of-a-kind experience and the ideal way to conclude a week in the Northwest.
Please Note:
