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.

Traveler Reviews

Reviewed by: Gloria D, July 2016

Guide/Driver was knowledgeable of the area and was able to provide interesting facts and stories about the areas we were visiting. The itinerary was just as described as well as the length of the tour. Pick up at our hotel went smoothly as planned. Very good tour for a day-trip. We would highly recommend this tour to others interested in discovering the Oregon Coast but who are not keen on driving themselves especially in unfamiliar areas.

Our tour guide, Julie, was incredibly knowledgeable of the history of the area and was extremely friendly. The Oregon Coast itself was super beautiful and was a perfect getaway from Portland.
