Portland: Private Columbia Gorge Waterfalls Scenic Air Tour

Enjoy a private air tour of Oregon’s Columbia River Gorge and see sights like Multnomah Falls, Beacon Rock, Bonneville Dam, the Bridge of the Gods, and Crown Point.

The beautiful landscape of the Gorge was changed when a wildfire ravaged much of the area east of Multnomah Falls in September of 2017. The once lush and vibrant greenery turned into burnt scars for miles. Luckily, nature is powerful and the beauty of the Gorge remained, the force of the waterfalls continued and while some hillsides and ridges look somewhat destroyed, the stubbornness of nature can be clearly seen while flying above the area and you see trees and other growth left untouched, and underneath the burnt areas new life is beginning to emerge, whether it is seen yet or not.

The stunningly beautiful gorge has dozens of permanent as well as seasonal waterfalls and the private airplane will fly over some of them.
