The great scale of the Columbia River Gorge opens up as soon as you lift off on the Crown Point Gorge Helicopter Tour. The huge green slopes and cliffs of the Gorge loom in front of you, and behind them the snow covered volcanic peak of Mt. Hood, rises in the distance. Fly eastward along the mighty Columbia River, into the Gorge. Climb higher up over Oregon’s iconic Crown Point Vista House – a landmark, dramatic viewpoint along the historic Columbia River Highway.
