What you can expect

You'll tackle the whitewater of the White Salmon River, then relax with amazing, hand-crafted Oregon wine!

Heading east from Portland, we will cross over to Washington State to float down the exciting White Salmon River with professional river guides. On the water you will experience the power of this mighty river and learn about the unique ecosystem that calls it home. Then we’ll dry off, change clothes and make our way to Hood River, where we’ll enhance the Northwest experience by tasting at two boutique wineries. In an intimate setting, learn local wine making history and the art of viticulture.

The White Salmon River on the Washington side of the Columbia River is a small river that punches well above its weight, with dozens of rapids packed into 2.5 hours on the river. The spring- and glacier-fed river plunges over Husum Falls on its way to join the mighty Columbia River in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.

High and dry after rafting, a casual picnic lunch awaits before we head off into the scenic area and drop in at two local wineries to discover the diversity of wines that call the Columbia Gorge region home. The area’s micro-climates make room for cool-climate white wines and pinot noirs, as well as bold sun-loving reds like cabernet, Malbec, Syrah, and more.

As you travel from the River and to the wineries, you’ll get a scenic overview of the region, possibly including views of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Multnomah Falls, Beacon Rock, and other Columbia Gorge landmarks.
