Columbia & Snake Rivers Journey: Harvests, History & Landscapes

Two great rivers and a region’s bounty

The most interesting way to experience the Columbia & Snake Rivers
On our Columbia and Snake River cruises, we travel through the region as early explorers, settlers, and natives did—by the waterways that stretch far inland from the Pacific Ocean. Our intimate, 50-cabin expedition ship will enable you to:

  • Sail in the wake of Lewis & Clark and their legendary Corps of Discovery expedition
  • Taste the bounty of the region through their harvests and fresh, local, and delectable cuisine
  • Experience the region on up-close, water level Zodiac and kayak forays
  • Transit a series of eight locks that lift the ship 700 feet, 10 times the elevation of the Panama Canal

Experience the region’s history, harvests & landscapes
The powerful Columbia and Snake Rivers flow through a beautiful land and offer access to fantastic wineries, places to kayak, bike or hike, and extraordinary scenery—you’ll experience it all. Hike to a towering waterfall. Taste local fruit at a family farm and enjoy views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams. Visit sites used by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark while they made their way to the Pacific Coast. 

Every day is engaging and options abound
You’ll be offered guided tours of museums, historic sites, and a winery. You’ll walk, hike, bike, kayak, or Zodiac cruise—most days off-the-ship outings will be offered. Bike ride or walk along a historic route. Or, if you’d prefer to take an afternoon off, you’re welcome to grab a good book and relax on our ship’s sundeck.

Travel in excellent company
Explore under the sure guidance of an expedition leader, a historian, a geologist/naturalist, plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor and a wellness specialist. Their knowledge and passion for the Columbia & Snake Rivers is the key to your once-in-a-lifetime experience.
