Það sem verður gert

Our experience provides the best of its category -- best bicycles, guides, vehicles! We transport our guests and bikes in Mercedes Sprinters, and our guides ride with very small groups. We'll visit waterfalls you will not see on other tours. You'll immerse yourself in the temperate rainforest! We tell the stories that need to re-awaken. Beyond the 180 years of pioneers and loggers, before the century-old highway, this was the land of people with a rich mythology. We remember the long history this place holds, and tell these stories as best we can. After we fit you for bikes at our shop in SE Portland, we'll head out in one of our Mercedes Sprinters. The bike ride and hike both take place in the Columbia River Gorge, the waterfall-laden western end of an 80-mile (130-km) canyon. At a breathtaking vista overlooking the Gorge, we'll take photos, and hear the story of who was here before us. We'll also tell you how the waterfalls were created before getting on your bikes to ride. Over the course of the tour, we'll ride over six miles (10 km), mostly gentle downhill on a historic highway frequented by cyclists, see four to six waterfalls, hike 2.5 miles (4km), visit one waterfall unique to our tour -- all within a 30-40 min drive of the city. The tour is about five hours; you'll remember it for years to come! Last minute is ok! Contact us for bookings beyond the window.

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with partners & guides Edwin, Evan and Jeri 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. Between us, we have decades of experience guiding bicycling, hiking and scenic tours in the Columbia Gorge, as well as 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 in this experience. We will visit the highlights you cannot miss -- like Multnomah Falls -- but we will also take you beyond. More: aroundportlandtours.com @aroundportlandtours

Staðsetning

After fitting you for a bike that fits you at our inner SE Portland bike shop, we'll head out to the Columbia Gorge, riding on the Historic Columbia River Highway and then taking a break from biking to hike up to a magical upper waterfall not visited by other tours. This waterfall was described by native people as the cursed wife of Coyote, the Beaver princess; we'll tell her story before we get back on our bikes to ride more.

Fleiri ábendingar

The cycling is appropriate for infrequent cyclists, but is on a historic highway with some vehicles. We work to make the ride safe and pleasant for all abilities, but absolute beginners may not enjoy this experience. The hiking is relatively easy, but does include 600 ft elevation gain.
