Cosa farete

Multnomah Falls and other waterfalls and vistas of the Columbia Gorge are astonishing icons of geology, the sort that have inspired mythology and lore of warriors, gods and passions in every world culture. Meet the tallest waterfall in the state, and a few of the shorter but even more stunning ones, too; falls which could only be the daughters and sons of legend.

In this half-day experience, we will explore and meditate on wonders in our customizable small-group, half-day experience with hikes (up to 3 miles/5 km) and visits to overlooks and vistas that will have you gasping in awe. While Multnomah Falls and its iconic Benson Bridge are together the most-visited tourist attraction in the Portland area, they are only a part of our experience.

We will meet at our shop in inner SE Portland, where we'll ride in our Mercedes Sprinter vans to the nearby gorge. Depending on weather conditions, we could visit a few small hidden waterfalls or spectacular plunge-style falls whose columnar basalt has us learning words for "amazing" in other languages.

We'll also tell you stories, geology, botany and oft-repeated tales of pioneers and road-builders, but also the old stories we've learned, of gods and wild spirits and about the oldest North American civilization, forever altered by “manifest destiny."

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with partners & guides Edwin, Jeri and Phil will host the experiences. I'm a published writer of essays and professional storyteller, and each of the narratives around which our tours are based is a collaboration between us, writers and route designers, as a movable narrative, what we call place-based storytelling.

Among us, we have decades of experience guiding bicycling, hiking and scenic tours in the Columbia Gorge, as well as full liability and injury insurance, wilderness readiness training and education in the botany and geology of this place. We have taken the best parts of our 1000s of visits and applied it to what we do here.

Sarah and partner were absolutely wonderful! We very much enjoyed our time on this experience. It was very unique, wonderfully planned & executed, and accommodating. I enjoyed how the experience gave us the feeling and photo opp’s to feel like we tackled the Columbia River Gorge and all ~five waterfalls without strenuous exercise (we did not do the biking experience but having some in our caravan they told us you do get a bit of a workout). I would so do this all over again if only i had a few more days here!

It was a wonderful experience. Answered all our questions and added a lot of flair to narration. I enjoyed learning the native names of the features we toured. It was a epic experience.

This was an AMAZING experience. If you’ve never seen waterfalls, like me, this would be an incredible way to experience them for the first time. The tour guide and his dog were both super friendly!

We did not end up doing our tour with Sarah. We ended up with Edwin. He was amazing! Very knowledgeable about the area. We would definitely recommend Edwin to anyone! Wonderful experience.

I was a little concerned since my partner isn’t the most athletic, but this hike was perfect for amateurs. We were running almost 10 minutes late (dang GPS) but Julia was gracious enough to wait until we arrived. Expect to hear corny dad jokes, neat anecdotes about the land, and recommendations galore. Thanks for letting us stop to view the baby goats!!
