The Mt. Hood and Columbia River Gorge experience was a scenic and adventurous day trip. It was so great viewing Oregon’s natural wonders and meeting new people as well! We were so happy the organizers decided to reverse the order of the trip so we visited the waterfalls later in the day when the heat was unbearable. Our tour guide, Zeke, was friendly and well learned on Oregon’s history and culture. He energized the long day trip and accommodated all participants’ needs. My partner and I are excited to return and see the falls and mountain in the future!

We couldn’t have asked for a better day with guides Malia and Craig! The weather cooperated, giving us breathtaking views of Mounts Hood, St. Helen’s, Jefferson and Adams. Malia and Craig shared from their wealth of knowledge and stories about the beautiful Columbia River Gorge area with its numerous lovely falls. Their passion for this beautiful corner of Oregon made it even easier for us to fall in love with the Pacific Northwest. We enjoyed our ride up Mt. Hood and loved walking in the snow and meeting Heidi, the Saint Bernard mascot of Timberline Lodge. Malia and Craig easily fielded any questions that arose and interacted with the guests in a manner that made us feel like family. The group was small and the van very clean and comfortable. We highly recommend this trip and wouldn’t hesitate to book a future experience with Wildwood Adventures.

This was a delightful trip and so glad we did both the falls AND Mt. Hood. Our travel van followed the Columbia River beginning in Troutville and had great stops along the way at Vista House and several waterfalls in the area. Our Driver/Guide was SAM and she was very personable and offer great information about the area and if she didn't know the answer to a question, she'd check in with Wildwood staff and get an answer by the next stop. Lunch was on our own in Hood River, OR - lots of little coffee shops, diners and brewpubs. On the afternoon leg of the trip we stopped at a farmer stand if folks wanted to purchase fresh cider, jams, or fruit. Additionally, the Draper Girl market stop offered the chance to feed goats and a great view of Mt. Hood from the parking lot. Plenty of time was allocated to explore Timberline Lodge (if you have a National Parks passport get a stamp from the front desk of the hotel) before returning to Portland. Sam was attentive to the needs of her passengers and willingly took photos when asked. We'd happily book again with Wildwood!

Booking this tour was by far the best idea, the places we saw were absolutely stunning and the guide, Zeke, was so knowledgable about them all and had extra information and answered every question the group had. I went by myself and the other people on the tour made me feel really comfortable, as did Zeke. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone who was thinking about it, it was he highlight of my trip!!

Very relaxed tour where you have free time to explore yourself during the several stops. Brian our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining with his commentary. The minibus / van was clean and comfortable. We experienced stunning scenery and luckily exceptional weather. I was concerned the waterfalls wouldn't be flowing due to lack of rain but during the tour we learned the falls were fed from springs that release water year round so no worries there. I can heartily recommend this trip. It was a little bit expensive for us due to the poor exchange rate between USD to GBP but worth it

Thanks Brian 👍

The weather was great, the scenery was stunning and Zeke provided interesting and informative commentary. The waterfalls and forest were beautiful and the day was capped off with a clear view of snowy Mt Hood. Small tour in a comfortable bus.

David our tour guide gave us the best information on the area, fun facts, and excellent tips at each stop. We loved the waterfalls, lunch in Hood River, and the best views of Mount Hood from vistas points and also at the Timberline Lodge up close. Leaving the driving, parking, and details to our experienced tour guide allowed us to enjoy the views and see the very best of Columbia Gorge , Hood River, and Mount Hood

My wife and I could not be more pleased with the overall tour. From the communication to the comfort of the transportation, to Evan, our excellent tour guide with many hidden talents.

Full of information and great scenery. The weather could not have been more perfect which provided for unobstructed views.

Overall, we highly recommend Wildwood Adventures and ask for Evan.
