Day 1 – Fly into Portland early allow time to visit this beautiful city! Situated between the sparkling waters of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, Portland has flourished throughout history with the fortunes of the great rivers. In the golden age of riverboats, sternwheelers crossed Portland’s busy waterfront while steam whistles and calliopes rang out across the water. Today big city excitement, combined with small town charm, make Portland one of the favorite destinations in the West. Board The Queen of the West Rivership.

Day 2 – Today we start with a visit to Astoria, a nationally significant historic region at the western end of the Lewis & Clark Trail, Astoria is the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies and today showcases more than 70 Victorian-era homes in its unique historic district. In the winter of 1805-06 the Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery headquartered at Fort Clatsop.

Day 3 - Cruising through Volcano Alley on the Columbia River with views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams and Mt. St. Helens. From Rainier, we travel to Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. At the nearby observatory and interpretive center, look right into the volcanic crater with its steaming dome, and witness first-hand the destructive power and damage caused by this volcanic blast in 1980.

Day 4 - Eighty miles long and up to four thousand feet deep, the Columbia River Gorge is a spectacular river canyon cutting the only sea-level route through the Cascade Mountain Range. A popular recreational destination, the gorge holds federally protected status as a National Scenic Area called the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. The awe-inspiring cliffs look down on quaint riverfront towns and exhilarating windsurfing waters.

Day 5 - In the heart of the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area, we transit the Bonneville Lock and Dam to reach the port of Stevenson. At the Bonneville Dam Visitors Center, learn about the workings of the massive turbine generators behind this imposing hydroelectric power source. The Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center showcases the area's unique cultural and historical diversity, from the Native American tribes that inhabited the Gorge, to Lewis and Clark and 19th-century loggers.

Day 6 – Today we journey to Pendleton and get a taste of the real west watching working cowboys at the world-famous Pendleton Roundup and learn of the coming of the pioneers from the perspective of the Native Americans at the Tamastslikt Cultural Institute.

Day 7 – Enjoy the day cruising as we sample wines from this burgeoning wine region.

Day 8 - The twin cities of Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington, are known as the Northwest’s most inland seaports.
