The Basics

Multnomah Falls is a popular and easy destination for half-day and full-day tours from Portland. In addition to time at the falls, half-day tours often also include visits to the Columbia River Gorge, the Vista House at Crown Point, or other falls in the area. Full-day tours might stop at Mt. Hood for a well-rounded look at the beauty of northwestern Oregon or at area wineries for afternoon tastings.

Waterfalls!
We really enjoyed the full day tour to Mount Hood and loved seeing all of the waterfalls. A totally different take on a Portland vacation. The trees up high we’re covered with snow-looked like Christmas card picture.

Morning Half-Day Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Waterfalls Tour from Portland
The tour and guide were great, the four stars were more because it rained that day and Vista house was closed due to Covid. Kind of hard to take pics from the van when it’s fogged up from the weather. But, the waterfalls were beautiful, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave entertaining stories about the things we were seeing. But, good thing my iPhone was waterproof!

Great tour (with the RIGHT guide)

Mt Hood Day Trip from Portland to Multnomah Falls and Hood River
This comprehensive tour was made meaningful by the energy, knowledge, and tireless communication skills of the guide, John. But he may have made all the difference from this being just a ling day in a van to a great tour full of interesting facts. I say this because I had another tour by the same company on the next day (to Cannon Beach and the Oregon coast) which really suffered in comparison. So, if you have a choice, ask for John…otherwise, the 9.5 hour day could be very long and dull.

Mt Hood Day Trip from Portland to Multnomah Falls and Hood River
We had an amazing day with Phil! He was knowledgeable and fun to be with. We saw more than we expected and thoroughly enjoyed seeing the area around Mt Hood and Multnomah Falls. We have been on a road trip of the national parks and have been on the road for over 3000 miles. This tour was a nice respite from driving and gave us the opportunities to enjoy all the beautiful Oregon scenery!

Multnomah Falls and Columbia River Gorge Tour with Gray Line
Waterfalls and river gorge! Guide very helpful. Your website was too confusing about downloading a ticket yet having to go to grey line e for real ticket. Online business should be totally online especially for tourists not having much time. It took too long to get to half day trip. It’s very popular.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Parts of the path that lead to the lower waterfall are wheelchair accessible; there is an elevator to the restaurant.

  • A US Forest Service information center is open seven days a week.

  • The Multnomah Falls Lodge at the base of the falls hosts a restaurant, snack bar, gift shop, and restrooms. Pick up hiking trail maps here.

  • Make sure to wear sturdy walking shoes and bring a layer, whether you plan to hike or not; spray and mist can make surfaces slippery and cooler than nearby areas.

  • Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash.

How to Get There

Located along the Historic Columbia River Highway, just across the Columbia River from Washington state, and 30 miles (48 kilometers) east of Portland, the falls are a heavily visited attraction. If driving from Portland, head east on Interstate 84 and take exit 31 to the parking lot (which fills up often). For a more scenic route, take exit 28 and drive the Columbia River Gorge Scenic Highway. To avoid traffic and navigation issues, take a guided bus tour from Portland.

Other Waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area

While Multnomah Falls is definitely the grand dame, it’s not the only waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area or along the Historic Columbia River Highway. On the drive between Portland and the gorge, stop off at Wahkeena Falls, Latourell Falls, Horsetail Falls, or Bridal Veil Falls for more opportunities to take in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Select day tours to Multnomah Falls also stop at additional waterfalls on the route.
