Make your own way to Director Park in downtown Portland where you hop on your bus, which heads toward the scenic Historic Columbia Highway.

Your first stop is Crown Point Vista House. Sitting 733 feet above the Columbia River, the overlook provides panoramic views of the Columbia River Gorge. Visit the museum before heading back to the bus, which takes you to three more waterfalls. At the Multnomah Lodge, stretch your legs with a short hike to the falls’ prime viewpoint, Benson Bridge.

Next up is Hood River, the windsurfing capital of the world. Watch athletes practice their craft on the water as you have lunch at local craft brewery. Then, tour orchards and a lavender farm, culminating at Timberline Lodge, which you may recognize from the movie The Shining.

After a guided tour and a short hike to the Pacific Crest Trail, load up to return to Portland where you started.
