Cosa farete

Our experience provides the best of its category -- best bicycles, guides, vehicles! We transport our guests and bikes in Mercedes Sprinters, and our guides ride with very small groups. We'll visit waterfalls you will not see on other tours. You'll immerse yourself in the temperate rainforest!

We tell the stories that need to re-awaken. Beyond the 180 years of pioneers and loggers, before the century-old highway, this was the land of people with a rich mythology. We remember the long history this place holds, and tell these stories as best we can.

After we fit you for bikes at our shop in SE Portland, we'll head out in one of our Mercedes Sprinters. The bike ride and hike both take place in the Columbia River Gorge, the waterfall-laden western end of an 80-mile (130-km) canyon. At a breathtaking vista overlooking the Gorge, we'll take photos, and hear the story of who was here before us.

Over the course of the tour, we'll ride 4-6 miles (7-10 km), mostly gentle downhill on a historic highway frequented by cyclists, see four to six waterfalls, hike about 2 miles (4km) -- all within a 30-40 min drive of the city. The tour is 4-5 hours; you'll remember it for years to come!

Please note we book directly as well as through AirBNB, and your overall tour group may be up to 10.

I'm Sarah Gilbert, co-founder of Around Portland Tours and together with partners & guides Edwin, Jonathan, Eddie, Everett and Monroe will host the experiences. I'm a published writer of essays and professional storyteller, and each of the narratives around which our tours are based is a collaboration between us, writers and route designers, as a movable narrative; we call it place-based storytelling.

Between us, we have decades of experience guiding bicycling, hiking and scenic tours in the Columbia Gorge, as well as wilderness readiness training and education in the botany and geology of this place. We have taken the best of our 1000s of visits and applied it to what we do in this experience.

Dove ti troverai

After fitting you for a bike that fits you at our inner SE Portland bike shop, 833 SE Main #120, we'll head out to the Columbia Gorge, riding on the Historic Columbia River Highway and then taking a break from biking to hike up to a magical upper waterfall not visited by other tours. This waterfall was described by native people as the cursed wife of Coyote, the Beaver princess; we'll tell her story before we get back on our bikes to ride more.

Awesome experience! Took this tour with a group of friends as our last event before we left Portland. Edwin was extremely accommodating and Monroe kept the group right on schedule so we could see all the beautiful views. The whole experience was well though out and I highly suggest booking.

This trip was amazing. It's one thing to see these sites by car but another to be in the fresh air, gliding along on a bicycle... It's so calming!

We had an amazing time with Edwin and Monroe on this tour through the gorge! I loved alternating between hiking and biking, and the option to sit any portion out in the van if needed. We will definitely book another tour with them next time we're in town!

The trip to the waterfalls and the bike riding and hikes were really enjoyable. Sarah and Monroe were excellent tour guides. There was an instant camaraderie among everyone on the van, which added nicely to the trip. Bike riding downhill through the spectacular scenery was truly a highlight of the trip for me. I’m very happy that I signed up for this tour.
