Catch a perfect mix of city and country views while touring around some of the most beautiful areas of Portland. You’ll cross into the Tualatin Valley and fly down the west side of the sylvan West Hills. Fly over picturesque Lake Oswego and trace the Tualatin River through lush rural countryside where old farms mix with large new estates. At the Willamette River you’ll be treated to an amazing view of Willamette Falls, the second largest waterfall in the United States by volume.
A thrilling ride across all of Portland’s rich topographic diversity!
Perched on cliffs above the falls is the historic town of Oregon City, the first capital of the Oregon Territory and the end point of the famed Oregon Trail. Your tour turns northward at this point to follow the Willamette River downstream towards Portland. Pass on the way the clear waters of the Clackamas River and then look up ahead for the Portland skyline to come into view again. With lakes, rivers, waterfalls, cityscapes, hills, and snowcapped peaks in the distance, this tour is a customer and staff favorite.
