This tour is conveniently offered in both the morning and afternoon. Start with hotel pickup or any location within a 5-mile (8-kilometer) radius of Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Enjoy a scenic drive along Highway 84, stopping at the Bonneville Lock and Dam to view the fish ladder and its most famous local resident: Herman, a 10-foot sturgeon. Continue on the Historic Columbia River Highway in search of many large and small waterfalls along the route.
