When visiting the Portland area, Mt Hood should be a must on anyone's list. Its majestic beauty from afar is only the beginning. Once up close and personal you will feel a connection with the real wildness of the Pacific Northwest. Our guides can design a custom tour of Mt Hood that is tailored specifically to your travel goals.
Most trips to the mountain begin with a visit to a few of the nearly 100 waterfalls that exist in the famous Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. After a nature walk and a morning snack near one of these natural wonders, we continue East to the town of Hood River. Here you can find just about any outdoor activity you can imagine, but windsurfing and kite boarding are by far the most popular. After a delicious lunch and maybe a visit to a boutique or two, we continue towards Mt Hood via the pastoral and picturesque Hood River Valley. Take your pick from a variety of local wineries and fruit stands, or even a short hike to stretch your legs as we approach the most iconic destination in Oregon, Timberline Lodge.
A tour to Mt Hood can take you hiking or mountain climbing the second most climbed mountain in the world with a elevation of 11,245 feet, or enjoy the adventure of a lifetime and bathe in the overwhelming views on a 2 mile hike around Trillium Lake - offering some of the best possible views of the mountain itself. Snowshoe trips are popular in the winter, and our guides are trained to help make sure the tour you choose is inline with your skill level as well as your interests. We can even help you plan an overnight excursion for the family or a corporate retreat, and we are always happy to offer up ideas for the rest of your time in Oregon.

We love the Northwest and are sure with us as your guides, you will too!
