Two great rivers and a region’s bounty
The most interesting way to experience the Columbia & Snake Rivers
On our Columbia and Snake River cruises, we travel through the region as early explorers, settlers, and natives did—by the waterways that stretch far inland from the Pacific Ocean. Our intimate, 62-guest expedition ship will enable you to:
Experience the region’s history, harvests & landscapes
The powerful Columbia and Snake Rivers flow through a beautiful land and offer access to fantastic wineries, places to kayak, bike or hike, and extraordinary scenery—you’ll experience it all. Hike to a towering waterfall. Taste local fruit at a family farm and enjoy views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. Visit sites used by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark while they made their way to the Pacific Coast. See more of the cultural experiences you’ll have.
Every day is engaging and options abound
You’ll be offered guided tours of museums, a farm, and a winery. You’ll walk, hike, bike, kayak, or expedition landing craft cruise—most days off-the-ship outings will be offered. Bike ride or walk along a historic route. Or, if you’d prefer to take an afternoon off, you’re welcome to grab a good book and relax on our ship’s sundeck. See more of what you’ll do.
