||Portland, Oregon – Embarkation
||Arriving in Portland, an UnCruise representative escorts you to our hospitality suite where you can relax or explore the city. Breweries, bookstores, coffee shops, and quirkiness abound, the City of Roses doesn’t disappoint with colorful options within walking distance.
||Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area / Multnomah Falls
||Gateway to the gorge. Slip through the Bonneville Dam locks, then head behind the scenes at the visitor center. You’re in luck with a private tour of its massive turbines and fish ladders.
||Rowena Plateau / Columbia River Gorge
||Lava flows, floods, and volcanic ash deposits shaped the Rowena—sheer cliffs, basalt landforms, wide-stretching plateaus. At Rowena Overlook, it’s boots-on-the-ground exploration.
||River play is on the agenda today—whichever option you pick start with a shallow wet landing on beach. Choose whitewater with a Deschutes rafting adventure. Class II and III+ rapids come with names like Elevator and Surf City.
||Washington Wine Country / Richland
||Award-winning wines come out of the Red Mountain AVA. Sweeping views surround Terra Blanca Winery & Estate Vineyard. And its owner and winemaker do a good job of keeping you on the task of tasting.
||Palouse Falls State Park / Snake River
||The essentials of the day—kayaks, paddle boards, swimsuits, and hiking shoes. Bring your binocs, too (there’s great birding and views).
||The history of this area is as rich as the canyon walls are dense. Delve into it! After breakfast, it’s a treat when a Nez Perce tribal member comes aboard for a special story, song, and music presentation. Lewis & Clark, Nez Perce, early Pioneers—signs of the past tell tales on your jet boat ride into the canyon.
||Clarkston, WA – Disembark
||One last fresh scone or omelet. After breakfast, disembark in Clarkston and transfer to the Lewiston, Idaho or Spokane, Washington airport (your choice) to catch your flight home.
