Before your river voyage, spend two nights in Portland to experience the art, food and beautiful gardens of this hip river city nestled between Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens.


• Delve into the city’s fascinating history from “Stumptown” to “The City of Roses” during a presentation by a local historian.
• Learn some fun facts about the city on an expert-led walking excursion then hop aboard MAX, Portland’s state of the art light rail system, to discover the city on your own.
• Discover why Portland is known as a “foodie” town and center of the local food movement as you enjoy two lunches and one dinner at locations of your choice.

Activity Notes

The distance you walk is up to you on this independent program. The optional expert-led walking excursion covers about 1.5 miles.
