Unique Landscapes 

If the Pacific Northwest is known for anything, it's for the amazing scenery. When you are cruising down the Snake River, you'll get to see a variety of that scenery for yourself. 

These cruises take you along the coast where the landscape is lush and green. But you also get to see the other side of the area which is full of gorges and rock formations. The contrast between the two makes for an interesting trip seeing every angle the area has to offer. 

Explore on Land 

River cruises offer unbeatable opportunities to experience water life and have a unique perspective as you travel through the passageways. But to get a full, accurate experience, you have to explore on land as well!

A Columbia or Snake River cruise gives you that kind of opportunity. 

The guides on your cruise will help direct you to a variety of hikes that cater to all skill levels. Snake River wine tours are also the perfect way to enjoy the scenery and local-made products. You can also spend your time exploring tide pools or other water activities like kayaking.
