At a Glance

Come aboard the Wilderness Discoverer, an expedition cruise ship that will bring you up close to lands forged by volcanoes and washed by catastrophic floods — lands that Lewis and Clark first laid eyes on two hundred years ago. Cruise nearly 1,000 miles amid breathtaking mountains and spectacular canyons, and go on land to learn about the adventures of Lewis and Clark from an expert as you explore these great outdoors.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • On a daylong field trip to Astoria, visit Fort Clatsop, Lewis & Clark's encampment during the winter of 1805 and 1806.
  • Take in the natural beauty of the towering Multnomah Falls, and learn about and the geological history that carved this gorgeous region at the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Museum.
  • An expert on the Corps of Discovery offers an in-depth exploration of Lewis and Clark’s expedition while stopping at various sites where they made camp.
