Journey through a geological masterpiece of astounding landscapes.

Begin with a stay in Spokane, Washington’s second-largest city, graced with beautiful parks and world-class museums.

Then embark on your river cruise in Clarkston, where rich Native American culture springs to life at the nearby Nez Perce National Historical Park. Explore the Interpretive Center at Sacajawea State Park, delve into the unique pioneer history of The Dalles, and take in picturesque scenery in Stevenson, Washington, home to the renowned Columbia Gorge Interpretive Center Museum. Before your voyage concludes in Portland, the “City of Roses,” visit the Bonneville Dam, a monument to human ingenuity, and revel in the small-town charms of the oldest city west of the Rockies, Astoria.
