Columbia & Snake Rivers

Portland, Columbia River Gorge, Hood River, Palouse River, Clarkston
Aboard National Geographic Sea Lion

Exploring the Pacific Northwest by ship is a study in contrasts. It’s at once relaxing and mentally stimulating. It reveals great natural beauty, and yet it features modern marvels of human engineering: an imposing system of locks, and large-span bridges. The locks we travel through will raise and lower the ship nearly 700 feet—close to ten times what transiting the Panama Canal entails. Complimentary wine and beer tastings during evening recap and dinner will introduce you to local vintners and brewers for which the region is renowned. We’ll stroll the grounds of the Maryhill Museum, walk through a vineyard with Mt. Hood in view, see the reconstruction of Lewis & Clark’s Fort Clatsop, as well as kayak and explore by expedition landing craft. Throughout our journey, our superb expedition team will put everything in context and weave an ongoing narrative from each day’s events. You’ll also travel with a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor at your side and at your service—ensuring you’ll go home with fantastic photos.
