Pacific Northwest Vacations Along the Columbia & Snake Rivers

Consider a Pacific Northwest trip that follows the path of Lewis and Clark. Inland Pacific Northwest tours typically operate between Portland, Oregon and Clarkston, Washington, or round-trip Portland. Enjoy offshoots onto rivers only accessed by small tours, including the Willamette, Hood, Deschutes, Snake, Palouse and Clearwater River. Let our experts help pair you with the right Pacific Northwest trip for your interests, whether it’s focused on wine & culinary, adventure activities, or history & geology.

Coastal Pacific Northwest:
Tours to British Columbia,
San Juans & Olympic Wilderness

Coastal Pacific Northwest tours focus on the Canadian Inside Passage, Washington’s Olympic National Park, Alaska’s Inside Passage, or all three. Your Pacific Northwest trip will likely start or end in Seattle, and offer excellent opportunities for spotting the abundant wildlife of the Pacific Northwest. Longer positioning cruises in particular provide ample time to spot the region’s well-known whale populations, especially whale watching in Alaska. Or opt for shorter San Juan Island cruises to really immerse yourself in a single destination.
