Into oza kuyenza

Multnomah Falls and other waterfalls and vistas of the Columbia Gorge are astonishing icons of geology, the sort that have inspired mythology and lore of warriors, gods and passions in every world culture. Meet the tallest waterfall in the state, and a few of the shorter but even more stunning ones, too; falls which could only be the daughters and sons of legend.

In this half-day experience, we will explore wonders in our customizable small-group, half-day experience with short hikes (up to 3 miles/5 km) and visits to overlooks and vistas that will have you gasping in awe. While Multnomah Falls and its iconic Benson Bridge are together the most-visited tourist attraction in the Portland area, they are only a part of our experience.

We will meet at our shop in inner SE Portland, where we'll ride in our Mercedes Sprinter vans to the nearby gorge. Depending on weather conditions, we could visit a few small hidden waterfalls or spectacular plunge-style falls whose columnar basalt has us learning words for "amazing" in other languages.

We'll also tell you stories, geology, botany and oft-repeated tales of pioneers and road-builders, but also the old stories we've learned, of gods and wild spirits and about the oldest North American civilization, forever altered by “manifest destiny."

Please note we book directly as well as through AirBNB, and your group may be up to 10.

Each waterfall was gorgeous and our guide brought us to a fruit stand that sold amazing fruit. Beautiful location and comfortable/clean bus for travel. Was lovely to get to know the other people on the tour as well. A must-do tour!

SO so glad we booked this experience over taking a Multnomah Falls shuttle. Sarah's knowledge of the history of the area made us feel so much more connected and appreciative of the beautiful landscape. We also never would have known there were so many other waterfalls in the area worth a visit. Sarah's excursion really opened us up to the beauty of the state of Oregon and we can't wait to go back.

This was a really great experience. Sarah was super knowledgeable and provided us with great stories and information about Portland and the Columbia Gorge area along the entire trip. I particularly enjoyed the less-crowded falls as well as the little produce pop-up where I was first introduced to Marionberries (they’re amazing!). Thanks Sarah, this was one of the best things we got to do in Portland!
