Qué harás

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.

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with partners & guides Edwin, Jonathan, Carrie and Eddie will host the experiences. I'm a published writer of essays and professional storyteller, and each of the narratives around which our tours are based is a collaboration between us, writers and route designers, as a movable narrative, what we call place-based storytelling.

Among us, we have decades of experience guiding bicycling, hiking and scenic tours in the Columbia Gorge, as well as full liability and injury insurance, wilderness readiness training and education in the botany and geology of this place. We have taken the best parts of our 1000s of visits and applied it to what we do here.

Donde estarás

Meet in central Portland at 833 SE Main #120 to be driven to the Columbia River Gorge, full of waterfalls and wonders! We'll stop at the Vista House, conditions permitting. Each waterfall will include a short hike, so you may hike up to 2.5 miles (4 km) in total. If your group has appetite for more strenuous hikes, just ask; hiking is our business!

Unbelievable sights. Knowledgeable and nice guides. The tour is easy going, only a little actual hiking though. You’ll see multiple waterfalls AND an amazing view of the river to cap it all off.

This is a very do-able thing if you have a car. And although we had a car, we wanted to sit back/enjoy the ride and that’s exactly what we did. Sarah was very informative on different landmarks and knew a lot of history on the area. It was super chill and fun!

Edwin did an amazing job leading this tour! He did an excellent job leading the group to all of the waterfalls as well as giving the history and geology of the area. I would totally take this tour again and recommend it to others. Well worth the time and expense!

Sarah was really flexible and helpful by lending us two raincoats as we were unprepared for the rain on the day we arrived in Portland. We went on the tour with Jonathan and really enjoyed it! I’m so glad we chose to do the tour instead of adventuring on our own because not only did we get to enjoy so many special places in a 4 hour timespan but also appreciate it more after Jonathan went deeper into the history and interesting facts about each location.
