Columbia and Snake Rivers

see larger map >>

September 10 to 17, 2018

Cruise the entire length of the magnificent Columbia River Gorge aboard the 62-passenger National Geographic Sea Lion, gaining a fresh perspective on the Bonneville Lock and Dam, Beacon Rock and Multnomah Falls—Oregon’s tallest.

The corps of discovery. Trace the path of the Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery to Fort Clatsop near Astoria where the explorers hunkered down, and where the Columbia empties into the Pacific. Savor the flavor. Taste award-winning wines at a local vineyard on the Gorge, sample fresh fruit from a family farm in Hood River and sip hand-crafted Oregon beer. It’s harvest time! Let loose on the Palouse. By kayak or landing craft, traverse the calm waters of the Palouse River surrounded by basalt cliffs, then visit Palouse Falls that plunges 198 feet into the pool below.
