Spend a day along Oregon’s gorgeous coastline, filled with dramatic headlands, beaches and historical lighthouses, on this tour from Portland. Visit the quaint town of Astoria, the site of one of the first American settlements west of the Rockies, and explore Cannon Beach, where you’ll explore tide pools at Haystack Rock and enjoy free time to peruse shops and art galleries. You’ll also learn about Oregon’s maritime history and logging industry at two interesting museums with your guide.

Highlights

  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Comprehensive tour by bus/coach
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
After pickup from your Portland hotel in the morning, travel by van or mini-coach north to Astoria, located on Oregon’s western tip along the Pacific coast. First, visit the Astoria Column atop Coxcomb Hill, a historical site that was one of the first permanent American settlements west of the Rockies. Climb up the steps to the top and be rewarded with stunning views of the coastal town at the mouth of the Columbia River.

You’ll then visit the Columbia River Maritime Museum, where you and your guide will browse historical exhibits offering interesting information about the region’s many shipwrecks, lighthouses, early European exploration, commercial fishing and the Coast Guard.

You’ll also see different kinds of vessels, both life-size and models, indoors and out on the actual Columbia River, the major river of the Northwest that has been an important route for transportation and commerce.

Afterward, enjoy free time for lunch in Astoria (own expense) before driving south along the coast to Cannon Beach, where you’ll see Haystack Rock, a designated marine sanctuary full of tide pools. Enjoy more free time here to shop, walk along the beach, and explore the shops and art galleries that fill this vibrant, charming town.

On our return, you’ll stop at Camp 18, a historical logging museum that offers a glimpse into the history of Oregon’s important timber industry. You’ll be dropped off at your Portland hotel in the evening.

Our tour guide, Ron Davies, was great!! He is really kind and gave our group so much information about the history and nature, how people live and took us to a very good place to eat! There was no time when Ron didn't know something about our surroundings, he knew so much and it never got boring!!! Also our group was a perfect size of seven people - which was great! I am so glad I came! I really recommend this tour! Thanks so much!!!

This tour is definitely worth the money! We were picked up on time at our hotel by Ron, our tour guide. Very pleasant, friendly and knowledgable about everything relating to this state and the areas he took us to. The van was comfortable and clean and he had a complimentary bottle of water for all of us.
The trip there was long but beautiful scenery. The coast was breathtaking! Magnificent views from the peaks and the shoreline! Definitely a photographers dream for some stunning keepsakes.
