Pacific Northwest

A personal exploration of harvests, history & landscapes

The Expedition Experience

Voyage into the past and present. See deep time in the region’s geology—stunning landscapes we navigate through. Visit storied sites of Lewis & Clark. Experience the flow of history and human mastery as eight locks lift the ship some 700 feet. And sample the region’s bounty with the help of cheesemakers, award-winning vintners, and craft brewers.
