Columbia & Snake Rivers

7-night river cruises on the Columbia, Snake & Willamette Rivers

"I love the enthusiasm of your crew and how they worked as a team. Amazing how fast they all learn our names and formed bonds with us."
— Cecile C., Bellevue, WA (Columbia & Snake Rivers)
COLUMBIA GORGE. SNAKE RIVER. PIONEER AMERICA. 

Cruise the rivers—conveniently, roundtrip Portland, Oregon—aboard a replica coastal steamer. With two very different river adventures to choose from, you’ll need to decide. The great outdoors is there on both—coulees and canyons, evergreen forest, and dramatic basalt cliffs. Explore the rivers’ trails on foot or by bike, and along shore by kayak and raft. Or, focus on wine touring and tasting (sipping from casks and meeting winemakers) at vineyards and wineries in five AVAs. It’s all included—yes, all of it. Be sure to pack your spirit of pioneering adventure!

UnCruise on the Columbia & Snake Rivers

Bonneville Dam & Multnomah Falls

In October 2014, I sailed aboard the 88-guest S.S. Legacy on a river cruise exploring the Columbia & Snake Rivers roundtrip from Portland, Oregon. Though I usually work in the office, there are occasions I get out on the boats to experience our trips.
